It kind of bums me out that’s a justice league was the first live action movie to feature Superman where I was like ‘nah I don’t need this right now.’
What set the pace for me was that horrendous opening scene where his mouth was so distorted and obviously replaced with someone else’s.
We we saw it in the theater, my sister-in-law thought they had recast Superman during that scene. It was that bad.
In retrospect, they didn’t even have to edit out the bloody facial hair. The overwhelming majority of the Superman footage was re-shot anyway; keep the facial hair, put him in the black suit, cut out that opening scene (which looks too TV to start with, Joss) and the thing would at least look like a movie.
Exactly. He looked so good with the beard in MOS too. That was a no brainer. Everyone was expecting the black suit anyway and not only did we not get it.., we also got the totally unnecessary cgi. Of all the liberties with Superman during the franchise run, this would have been the one that made the most sense.
You know sunde I never though of that. They could have blended a beard in with that mustache and it would have at leased looked normal. The black suit would have been a nice touch as well.
This is one of the overwhelming reasons why I want the Snyder cut. Just to see how he handled Superman and his return if nothing else.
While I don’t think that it would have been handled necessarily better, I for sure it couldn’t have been handled any worse than Whedon. I’m Hate the idea of him falling to the anti life equation, but I just hate whedons writing so much that I’d at least have given it a shot
Agreed on Whedons writing too. He basically wrote a mediocre episode of the JL animated cartoon.
I would have actually preferred the JL cartoon music over Elfmans uninspired soundtrack too. I am not a fan of junkie xl but at least it would have been more in line with The Hans Zimmer stuff. Elfmans music was terrible in the film.
Not only can I not believe that scene remained in the film, I can’t believe that’s what they chose to open it with. Literally the first thing you see is an assault on your eyes. Writing the beard into the story was the only solution. I don’t think anyone would have complained about a beard and black suit.
Also it was a huge marketing error not including Superman. A better idea would have been including Superman with beard and black suit with something akin to ‘is this the real Superman?’ Just like the comics… I would have eaten that up.
Hey, props to WB for finally getting their heads out of their posterior pipes and realizing that the only version of BvS worth selling at this point is the Ultimate Edition. Too little too late, Warner.
From what I saw the only reason that the UE was even rated R was the un-necessary f-bomb. Every thing else should not have not been cut out of the original version.
Well again we can blame Tsujihara and Toby emmerich for being inept fools with that decision. While I definitely have many issues with BvS, the ultimate edition is light years better than the theatrical cut if only for giving Clark/Superman more lines… among other reasons The theatrical versions proves that they just wanted to push Batman front and center because ‘he sells!’ without taking any thought or reasoning as to why he sells… good storytelling. Theatrical cut was butchered to the point of detriment.
By the way…slightly off topic but anyone else seen new WB Batman—-Hush? Superman has a small role in it. But over all one of their better efforts. They did a pretty good job with this one. Predominantly Batman but definitely worth watching. I dare say a more personal side of Batman they haven’t done or shown before. Animation was good as well.
Haven’t seen it yet but it’s one of my favorite Batman stories. Although I’ve heard they change the ‘twist’ ending for the worst. I’ll reserve judgement until I see it though
I’ve never read the original story so I can’t compare it to that. A lot of times when these animated stories are taken from a book they don’t duplicate everything. So I wasn’t looking for any thing comparable. A lot of people do and if it doesn’t match up then in their mind it’s garbage. The guy that portrays Batman/Bruce Wayne did an excellent job! As far as I’m concerned one if the best! I’m usually not a big fan of when they take these characters out of their environments and get into personal/romantic relationships. But it seems to work… Read more »
I actually don’t mind when they take liberties with the story… especially if it’s for the better. I like to be surprised and not know everything that’s going to happen.
The only one I can think of where the liberties they took were truly was in The Killing Joke with all the Batgirl stuff. That was god awful.
Good grief, The Killing Joke was absolutely BAD. God awful is a perfect description. Could you imagine sitting in a room previewing that? And no one stood up and said, “you know, this is sickening”! I can take an R rating in these if done right but The-KJ was horrendous as to what gave it an R.
Aside from the creepy hook up, the whole subplot was just so stupid. I can’t even remember the name of the villain, but it was cringe worthy because of how subpar it was. You want to make it R, fine, you want to add more to the story? Okay. But for god sakes make it good or watchable. That was like really bad fan fiction.
It really saddens my heart to say that I am not interested in this otherwise wonderful package deal. The 3 first movies on the cover; Aquaman, Shazam and Wonder Woman was three movies I really enjoyed watching at the movies. It was great movies. Even the second row begins very good. Thankfully with Zack’s own versions of Batman v Superman and Man of Steel. These versions are great. But then the sad meddeling of the Warner Bros leadership destroys my will to buy the package. Egoistic people who thinks more about their own bonuses then letting a fantastic man complete… Read more »
As much as a lot of us would like to see the ZS cut it doesn’t appear that it’s a complete finished movie. So if it does get released then were probably going to see scenes that will just fade from one to another. The continuity won’t be there because none of it was finished. For all the flack that Suicide Squad got I actually thought it was pretty good. There’s a director’s cut of that as well.(haven’t seen) With the AT&T take over there’s been a lot going on within the company. It’s hard to speculate where things are… Read more »
Couldn’t they just fill in the missing scenes with animated ones to fill in the gaps? It’s just a suggestion, but at least it’s an idea on how to finish the Snyder cut.
I don’t know. Going between live action and animation might come across in a very hokey way.
I saw somewhere that it might cost between 30 and 40 million to complete. I really don’t think WB will invest that much into it. If it ever comes out I will gladly purchase and watch it, but maybe it’s time for either Snyder to put his own money into it or maybe start a crowdfunding endeavor because WB probably thinks it won’t be profitable… and they’re right. There aren’t 40 million dollars worth ofpeople who would buy a directors cut.
30 or 40 million dollars? Yikes! That’s a lot of money. Isn’t there a go fund me option that Snyder could do? I think it’s a way to raise money for any projects. I’m not sure though because I don’t know much about it.
Your right. They’re not going to spend that. Especially now with the take over by At&T.
BUT….here’s what they could do. Have ZS put together what he did do and have a disclaimer of exactly what’s being offered. Let people know as far as having a complete understanding what content is missing and what it represents. This would not break the bank to do. That way people will have a FULL UNDERSTANDING of what they’re buying.
True, it would effect the overall look of the film.
I’m not buying it, but only because I have the movies I want to own except for “Shazam!” and that one I’ll get on Black Friday in 4k. As for the rest.. WB hired Snyder, and the reason (imo) why the vision won’t be carried on rests firmly on the shoulders of both of them, and Goyer as well. WB’s meddling wasn’t good, but Snyder showed me to have a lack of understanding when it came to what attracts most audiences to Superman. There’s still a lot that can be done within those bounds, and much of what Snyder did… Read more »
You know Snyder was basically trampled on for doing what he was hired to do. Which was to ignore all the preceding movie story lines. A lot of what he did was the exact opposite of what we were all used to. And he certainly accomplished that! Over board some might say. Singer got a bit of the same treatment but for different reasons. But in both cases what you said about “core” being missing is valid. But the definition of “core” in what we expected apparently wasn’t what they wanted. In other words you can parallel some of the… Read more »
I’m not sure if it’s the intention, but what you’ve said extrapolates my point beautifully. Snyder was absolutely doing the job he was asked to do by a company that doesn’t understand the first thing about their own character. That his vision was to run with that supports my thinking that the DCEU’s initial lack of lasting success wasn’t due to WB interfering with Snyder/Goyer/etc, but WB setting the tone and direction in the first place. In other words (metaphorically), it wasn’t “what was added to the cake batter,” but the batter recipe itself. That it had redeeming qualities is… Read more »
Here’s one other concern I’m having. Marvel has apparently no intention(s) of slowing down it’s onslaught of movies. I fear they’re going to be dumping so many second tier character movies on the market that there’s going to be a burn out stage. They’ve used up their primary characters and Endgame was the result. SO…. by the time, IF they, the WB/DC, ever do decide to green light another Superman movie, will there be an audience that even cares and doesn’t just blow it off as another one of many superhero movies? And that attitude might be there regardless of… Read more »
I don’t think it’ll burn out. These characters have endured for the better part of a century because the audience is there. It might eventually slow down, but it’s not going away. I mean bash on Marvel all you want, but they are holding it down. Endgame is the highest grossing movie of all time and they followed that up directly with another Billion dollar plus movie. This genre is here to stay. It’s just a matter of using the characters the right way.
I think Superhero movies aren’t the niche genre that some think they are, or try to paint them as. They’re basically attached to the “action” genre, at this point. So, as JasEl said, while there might (likely will) be some slow-down, it won’t go away. And if it *is* in a slow-down period, they might be forced to make a Superman movie that’s not reliant on a huge budget of special effects and “cool shots” to make it work, and be all the better for it.
Here’s hoping, anyway.
WB looks wholly out of touch for ignoring Superman, especially when Justice League finally positioned Superman for a soft reboot as a character with a new lease on life, and Cavill actually wants to do it. Aquaman PROVED that audiences will forgive the mistakes of the Snyder era if the filmmakers work WITH the source material instead of against it and if the final product’s tone matches with the comics.There is no sane reason to have not moved forward with Superman on film….you don’t bench your heavy hitters.
Just a suggestion, but maybe they should consider the writer and director of Aquaman for the next Superman film.
Apparently Wan WAS offered his pick including Supes. He passed gor Aquaman,wanting to break some new ground. They need a director who is an actual student of the lore, beyond just the Dick Donner movies. They need someone who respects the comics instead of thinking Superman as he was needed ‘fixing’…
I keep hearing that he needs “fixing”. What do they mean by this?Does anyone know what they mean by this? Can someone please clarify what they mean?Are we talking about pre Man of Steel fixing or post Man of Steel fixing? Frankly, I never thought he needed fixing prior Man of Steel. Sure Returns has a bad script but Routh did an excellent job in the role. I always felt that they had the right idea, but the wrong approach. Continue the Donner universe but don’t repeat the plot of the first film. And also don’t give Superman an illegitimate… Read more »
As for Reeve’s version of Superman, I had always thought that his version was mostly true to the comics. He had all the Superpowers, he fought bad guys, saved a lot of people, hid his true identity with a suit and tie with a pair of glasses. Stood for Truth Justice and the American way. True that Routh’s copied the Reeve take, but the Reeve take had taken influence from the comics. True they added in some mopping for his character when he found out Lois had moved on with another man, and true that he did stalk her in… Read more »
I guess I got a little carried away with my previous paragraph. Sorry about that. I didn’t mean to go on and on. I was really trying to figure out and make sense on where WB stands with Superman.
But that’s interesting about what you said about Wan passing on Superman.
I was also wondering if anyone can explain a possible continuity error to me. In Superman the movie, Lois briefly talks about her sister having two kids and a mortgage. However, and this is where it gets a bit confusing for me, in Supergirl the movie, her sister Lucy is still in high school. Supergirl in her disguise as Linda Lee, sees a poster of her Cousin Superman in Lucy’s dorm room. So how can Lucy have two kids and a mortgage in the first Superman movie, yet be a high school student in Supergirl’s film?
Now I’ve got to tell you…….That movie was absolutely ridiculous and full of some of the worst plot/acting scenes I’ve ever seen. I take my hat off to you for being able to pay attention to it long enough to pick out inconsistencies that ran rampant through out.
You didn’t get carried away!! A lot of good points as well!!
Thanks redcape. It’s good to know that I’m not the only person who noticed that inconsistency.
Even though I liked Slater’s Supergirl performance, I also noticed a lot of things that made no sense in the film. Like how the omegahedren was lost at the beginning of the film, and how Supergirl was able to go off and chase it. How could something so small cause so much damage to their space craft? And why was it ok for Kara to be playing with this device without supervision in the first place? I also have to ask why is it that no one was keeping an eye on her? She lost the device and she left… Read more »
Also when Supergirl/Linda Lee was first enrolling at the high school, she super types down a fake recommendation by her cousin Clark Kent. How does she know that Clark is her cousin? How did she know that he works for the Dailey Planet? How does she know that Superman is her cousin? They never met.And where did she get her super suit???? She just goes into the space pod and a few seconds later abracadabra, she’s Supergirl. She even asked Lucy if she had met Superman, the cousin she knows everything about but has never met. I like this movie,… Read more »
