DCEU



  • Lots of DC news this weekend.

    Battfleck returns in the Flash, along side Keatons Batman. Trailers dropped for the Synder Cut and it looks amazing

    As does the new Batman film.







  • @Kirwan

    syder cut - its mad they can have what looks like a completely different film largely from existing footage...hope they re do cavill's mo....that was the final straw with the original for me

    i'll watch Batenson, looks a bit more gritty with trying to be the "real" world like Nolan did, will be cool, if there is a bit of "the worlds greatest detective" in there rather than just another bashathon, those look like jokers henchmen?...are we getting another joker?

    not a huge fan of millar's flash...but using it to get some connection between some of the many different versions of batman could be cool

    and wonder woman just looks fun again, watch the first one the other night and it was still fun on rewatch

    Synder had filmed five hours of footage before he had to leave production due to his daughters death. He had a rough cut assembly ready for cgi and post production.

    Whedon was hired and filmed even more footage and changed the entire story, and cut stuff. That’s what led to the moustache bollocks.

    Not one frame for Whedons reshoots are being used.

    And yes, the new Batman is leaning more on the detective angle, which will be a nice change. No Joker in this, also a good move.



  • @Kirwan yeah, i know the story...but five hours of footage is huge, makes you think the script wasn't really locked down...which i guess suggests why wheedon redid stuff if he couldn't see where snyder was going for...or possibly snyder wasn't 100% sure what he was going for at the time he left production

    didn't mean a joker in this film...that would have leaked...but are they hinting at another one, white face paint with big red lips...

    WB executives wanted a two hour film so they could have more screenings.

    Synder was aiming for, I think, just under three hours. Consistent with his other films, slightly longer

    The film was supposed to be centred around cyborg who got almost completely cut.



  • I mean, you hear about films with lots of footage but its different versions of the same or similar scene's....not five hours of different stuff

    i wonder how much stuff whedon shot, so what the total for one film was



  • Synder knew where was going, he outlined the plot for JL2 and the Flash and Green Lantern. He was laying the groundwork for all of that.

    Shame we won’t see all of that now.

    Have seen some crazy numbers from the cinematographer that a large amount was reshot.



  • No one will beat Brando for film shot for a movie, he went nuts for One Eyed Jacks



  • So no theatrical release for Snyder’s Justice League, only streaming on HBO Max?

    I've convinced my real life Hack Snyder fluffer friend to pay for my ticket and some junk food otherwise I wasn't going to rewatch - so I hope it goes to cinemas for that reason alone.

    I hope I fall asleep midway through to really piss him off.



  • wont be getting HBOmax just to watch it



  • @Kirwan Did you watch any of the DCEU-con panels? Do you know if they were free?



  • ...and Black Adam...dont know about this one



  • @Kiwiwomble hadn't seen that one yet, thanks.

    Just watched the coverage, been too busy.

    No cinema release, hopefully after the HBO Max it'll be out on Bluray.



  • Here's another video with some behind the scenes footage.

    Maybe they'll do a limited cinema run? A roadshow style one, because as much as I don't like Snyder's style, visually, they're definitely movies to be seen in the theatre.



  • @Nepia yeah, dark and moody so my tv doesn't really show it we'll...nothing happens during the day in the DC universe

    Eventually, maybe. But they are using this drive interest in yet another streaming service. Maybe it'll be used similarly to relaunch struggling cinemas after COVID



  • @Bovidae James Gunn is so perfect this sort of movie.

    I’m not sure if that will work out too well, I tend to think that most of the DC fans who would get HBO Max would already have it since they’re ditching the DC app and moving everything there anyway.

    They really should concentrate on their catalogue of HBO shows. I nearly signed up to yet another streaming service this week to get access to those shows in Oz (as they’re on fox who have launched yet another streaming service called Binge for this type of stuff).

    Is this a new movie or a remake of the first one? I really liked the first one

    Soft reboot, so a half sequel with some of the same characters but lots of new ones (that will pobably die)

    Lot of characters there. So yeah, a fair few expendables.

    i didn't recognise many of the characters so looked up a couple, also a firefly/nathan fillon fan....he's playing an original character....one made for the film....seems weird

    Knowing their history I assume there is an inside joke in that
