They should just release the damned thing and be done with it lol, moving on to other DC projects.

I mean it couldn't be any worse than the theatrical version even if they tried.

this debate triggers my most destructive instincts insofar as i think it would be *hilarious* if it was released and it was as unwatchable as WB thought it was

but hey, if it's good, that's cool too

...but they approved the theatrical cut.
It just doesn’t make sense to me that an experienced director like Snyder would fuck up so badly.

i suppose that depends entirely on how you feel about batman v superman, which i already find borderline unwatchable, and if it's -worse- than BVS, then i'm sure that issue intensifies.

That explains it. I actually loved BvS, so if JL continued on the same path I would’ve been satisfied. But it seems like WB wanted to move away from BvS as much as possible.

Reports about him stepping down came like seven months after they wrapped shooting (and six months before the relase). At that point it would have been very close to being completely done. So the stuff that came out last year about how WB found it unwatchable kind of seems plausible. Why else would they have Whedon come in?

Considering how they refused to push back the release date and rather went with Cavill's shitty face and expensive reshoots over just finishing Snyder's version, it was probably pretty terrible in their eyes.

But somehow I just can't see it being worse than the theatrical cut. I hated BvS but loved MoS btw

Unwatchable is such a vague thing to say and I can’t really go with what executives say. If it was up to the suits, a lot of brilliant films would be tinkered with to be more appealing to audiences. Whatever that means add more jokes or actions scenes or changing the entire acts.

What sucks about Justice League is that it disappointed fans of MoS and BvS by trying to deviate from them but also failed to attract new audiences. I think even if the Snyder cut was released initially it would’ve still bombed because I don’t think much people cared about it. Maybe word of mouth would have helped a little assuming the cut is indeed better and it would’ve at least satisfied the already established fanbase.

I think I might have high tolerance for ‘bad’ films (except for Justice League - the lows are just way too low to be ignored). So maybe I’ll check out The Snowman to see just how bad it is to receive a 7% RT rating :lol:
