Snyder Cut Updates; Jared Leto Returns and the Future of the Snyderverse

We have yet to receive an offical release date for Zach Snyder’s ultimate version of Justice League for HBOMax in 2021. Yet, as the announcements continue to hit the internet, my suspicions are leaning towards a Q2 release at the earliest. Back in May it seemed this thing would be a three-hour movie at best with some additional investment to complete post-production work; man is that NOT how this thing is shaping up! So what is confirmed, what’s pending, what’s rumored, and what’s not happening(for now)? Let’s talk about it! Jared Leto Returning: It was announced today that Jared Leto would indeed be reprising his role for the Snyder Cut! To what capacity would he be involved in the four-part miniseries is not confirmed, however, I think it’s safe to assume it won’t be for anything larger than a cameo appearance/one-and-done action sequence. Leto joining the project, just as reshoots have started up, nearly confirms what we’re really looking at here with this project; this isn’t a “pick up where they left off and release …

‘Green Lantern’ Series Roster Complete; Where Is Everyone?!

Moments ago we received word on who would be joing the Green Lantern series set to launch on HBOMax. Let’s take a look at what we got! Alan Scott: The DC Universe original series Stargirl introduced the Justice Society of America but has focused on a new generation of the team rather than the OG’s. With this being the case, I had my hunch that Alan Scott could be set to appear on the new series and this seems to be correct! For those that don’t know- Alan Scott was the original Green Lantern from the golden age of comics. Not only was his uniform completely different but the idea of the Green Lantern was something of its own as well; no gaurdians, no space travel, no intergalatic policing… It was just one man with a ring constructed from a meteor and the range of his abilities were unique; rather than green light it was more of like a green fire? Also, not as many constructs! Not only will he be a lead on the …

‘Justice League’ Getting $70 Million in Additional Photography; What’s It All For?

Earlier this year came the announcement that Zack Snyder’s Justice League would get its demanded debut exclusivey on HBOMax. The announcement came with the details that there would be a $20 million investment in order to finish post-production on the “already completed” principal photography. As of yesterday it seems things have changed! The Snyder Cut is now set to receive $70 million that includes a week of reshoots with the main cast… Let’s break this down. 1:The Issue: Look, let’s just address the elephant in the room; the studio did not like what Snyder originally created. They were not on board for Batman v Superman, the film had mixed responses from fans, and overwhelming negative reviews from critics. (To be fair, the theatrical cut of BvS was an absolute nightmare. The “ultimate edition” is not a bonus version of that film; it IS the film. The theatrical cut missed so much of the meat to that story that it ended up not making any sense when you saw it in theaters. I do think the …

Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Trailer Breakdown; Clearly a Different Movie

A highly anticpated piece to yesterday’s DC Fandome was the Snyder Cut panel. We knew beforehand that not only would the director be addressing important elements of the project (such as confirming it will be cut into four episodes releasing weekly) but that we would also be getting our first trailer. Let’s break it down. 1.Darkseid: Snyder wastes no time with this thing! Right out of the gates we get our first shot, clear as crystal, of Snyder’s Darkseid; ruler of the planet Apokolips. Though he is not the principal villain of the movie it was rumored for ages that the iconic character was always set to appear in the project to some capacity. Will he only be featured in flashbacks, will he make small appearences throughout, or is Snyder hoping to add more sequences with the character? Snyder’s cut of the film will not just be a complete telling of what he originally envisioned but will also be the “audition” with audiences to potentially greenlight the second Justice League film he was originally slated to …

Henry Cavill Will Return as the Man of Steel; Where We Can Expect His Return

It was no secret that Henry Cavill has had an odd relationship with Warner studios and the infamous Snyder Cut; He refused to appear for the cameo in Shazam and was the only cast member to not promote #ReleasetheSnyderCut back in November (which is the reason we’re getting it). Despite the sketchiness there is word that Cavill is inches away from finalizing a deal to keep the Superman role. This information comes about a week after getting official news of the Snyder Cut’s HBOMax release. So, does this mean we are set for Man of Steel 2? Not so fast. A: Justice League: At this time we know that the Snyder Cut of Justice League will be dropping on HBOMax some time in 2021. There is no doubt that the main cast will be back for further scene work and this will be a good opportunity to boost Cavill’s platform in the role. Of course, there is the risk that this ends up being another Batman v Superman but we’ll cross that bridge when we …

Episode 60 – A Pod Far Far Away

We did it folks, episode 60! Quite the accomplishment considering we were very convinced this would last only a month at inception. Join us as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Empire Strikes Back” with (yet another) sloppy discussion of the Star Wars franchise. Join us as we tackle topics like why Darth Vader ain’t shit, why adults pushing 40 should still see the animated Clone Wars series targeted for kids, and the future of the franchise at Disney+. Lastly, the Snyder Cut is a go at HBOMax, (01:04:38) so course we wrap with our two cents on that.

Snyder Cut on the Way; Future of the DCEU

Well I’ll be damned. The fans have done it! Three years after the theatrical release of Justice League it has been officially confirmed that the Snyder Cut WILL release on HBOMax in 2021. Besides the pleasure of getting to see the director’s original vision I’m filled with questions about the future; what does this mean for the DCEU? 1: Is the DCEU revived?: We remember that not too long ago, at San Diego Comic Con, the DCEU was officially replaced by the’ Worlds of DC.’ This was the official ending of the shared universe in order to approach more singular story experiences. Hm. Alright. This was primarily done because of the perceived failure of Zack Snyder’s creation. The thing is despite the enthusiasm for the Synder Cut over the last few years those mixed feelings still ring true; an overwhelming amount of audience goers didn’t vibe with his vision. Though what has changed over the course of this movement is the rise of streaming services. The launch of HBOMax and the translation of what is perceived …

‘Young Justice’ and the Mystery of the Token Gay Character

Young Justice has returned for the second half of its third season over on DC Universe. While I’m enjoying the plot unfold and getting to see more familiar faces for the DC world make their series debut, I am still caught up on trying to figure out just WHO the show-runners were referring to when they said, “gay characters have always been present on the team.” I blogged about this during the first half of the season. Though I haven’t posted reviews for the latest episodes, they did provide more information for who could and couldn’t be ruled out. So, let’s take it from the top people! Team roll call! Just like last time, since Weisman said the character(s) have been present since the end of season two, we will omit the mention of any outsiders or others brought on since the beginning of the current season. S1 characters Nightwing- No. He is very much with Barbara Gordon. Superboy- He is engaged to Miss Martian Miss Martian- ditto Kid Flash- Dead and was with Artemis …
