My honest guess on why WB stepped in is because Snyder's DC Universe was not as expansive as they wanted. There were many rumors like the league died or there was an evil Superman, so WB might have looked at this and decided (very late too.. Maybe they were waiting for the right moment, as disgusting as it sounds) that they need to soften the shit out of the movie by making it to a foundation where anything is plausible for all characters in their next movie(s).

I just find it odd to call the SC bad if Momoa, Affleck, Fisher, and Affleck are all going to bat for this one, especially since they all have something to lose with either WB and/or DC.

So maybe I’ll check out The Snowman to see just how bad it is to receive a 7% RT rating :lol:
Funnily enough The Snowman is probably the worst movie I've seen in theaters since Sucker Punch :P

or, the more likely explanation, they are loyal and loving to a guy who is by all accounts unbelievably nice and helped launch the careers of some of these people.

Yep, also a valid explanation

Yep. Gal Gadot have said she almost quit acting before BvS, because she was tired of being rejected and now she owns this big franchise. Same thing for Jason Momoa, who also has this big character now. It's just really nice to see those guys being loyal and loving to each other. Zack Snyder lost his daughter while filming Justice League, so I can imagine this also reinforced their friendship and love for the guy.

He should just upload it to 123movies already. He's blue balling his fans and Twitter gets more and more annoying each time he does.

He would have done it already if it was possible. I would like this film to be out in the open already just so that the toxicity can die down, but I'm sure it might make some fans go even more nuts by demanding that WB let Snyder continue his 5 film arc. Never happening nor should it. Just release it and close the book on his era of the DCEU.

Snyder is incredibly polarizing on this sub but I would hope we can all agree that any film maker having their work destroyed like this is unjust. My optimistic outlook is that Snyder is marketing the cut while negotiations are ongoing in a forward direction.

Yeah I agree that his vision shouldn't have been butchered like that, but at the same time I'm getting annoyed with him too.

He's constantly dropping teases and tidbits and it seems like he's egging on the movement. Meanwhile, the trades haven't even said or reported that Snyder has met with WB or tried anything on his part to help get his vision released. Right now it just feel like a gross exploitation of his fanbase. Snyder gets to sitback and chill while the fans embarrass themselves on Twitter and Reddit (it's gotten so bad on Reddit that other DC centric subreddits have removed DC_cinematic on their related subs list).

And I'm saying this as someone who enjoys his films. The whole situation just doesn't sit well with me.
