    BvS/JL are the highest grossing movies of all time? Cause that's what I was talking about

  • JollofRaids

    Has zac genuinely not seen the Weldon cut ?

    He always says he didn't watch it

  • Antidote

    He always says he didn't watch it

    thats crazy, i respect his restraint

    i'd be curious as hell to see how badly WB butchered it

    how are those 2 movies niche, with literally the most popular comic book characters on the planet? lmao

    The characters aren't niche but the story Zack is telling using them isn't exactly the most easily digestible story amongst general audiences.
    Man Of Steel had zod leveling skyscrapers, showing people getting s***ed up into the air and being thrown back down to earth, jets flying into buildings.. in a post 9/11 America at that. That alone is already speaking to a different audience and would put a lot of people off especially in comparison to what the Christopher reeves superman flicks were doing.
    A "darker" superman story would definitely put some people off.

    And there's nothing wrong with a darker Superman. I LOVE man of steel but it's a given that some people who already have their idea of superman are not trying to see certain elements. And those elements were rightfully continued in BvS. So then WB gave JL a tonal shift so it could be more of a generally liked movie. Like Marvel Lite tier. But if MoS and BvS created so many fans then they should've known switching up on JL would cause some complaints.

    Even Henry called it niche

    "reporter Kevin McCarthy was curious about Henry Cavill’s own personal opinion on Batman v Superman.
    “I think that movie is part of an arc for what Snyder’s vision was — or is — and it’s also in my mind fairly niche,” Cavill said. “It’s a niche style of movie within a genre. It reflects in the audience reviews and critics reviews. It’s divisive. When anything is niche is going to be liked by some and disliked by others. That’s the whole point of niche.”

  • F*** it, 4 years later. Batman v Superman is a great movie. It's not an easily digestible film. I still have my gripes with it but everything is clear, Jesse nailed it as Lex and his character development would have been realized as the DCEU would have moved forward.

    DCEU Lex Luthor is better than all MCU villains, that includes Thanos

    Oh we’re on the same page then, I thought you meant comic book movies shouldn’t try to be popular in general.

    They should have let zaddy do his thing and not care about making some mainstream marvel poop.

    "If God is all-powerful, he cannot be all-good, and if he is all-good, he cannot be all-powerful" the speeches gave were fire. I didn't fully understand this take on the character it was important. The entire movie is a deconstruction of these characters, and they were going to have fire arcs, but WB was giving casuals what they wanted while alienating the fanbase they built up, and trying to cash in their bonuses. Too busy on the forest and not looking at the trees. I was a stan a few years back but BVS will age very well, I say that in a non-bias fashion.

  • Bloggers didn't f***ing help though with their favoritism

    yeah it's very in right now to hate on DC and Star Wars, not saying they didn't earn a lot of it but if you wanna get positive buzz for your channel or blog, you know what you gotta do

    Bloggers/media really helped ruin a franchise, you hate to see it. One of the worst ones I remember seeing was an article comparing Suicide Squad to Donald Trump, like

  • Snyder vision is coming all togheter

    I cant wait !!!!

    Rise of Skywalker was F***ing ass. It deserves all the hate it gets

  • Steeze

    I meant even before that

    Finn should have been the Chosen One

  • Oddly enough, right now I don’t think I’ll ever watch MOS and BVS again. While I love em, I turned on the fanbase after I saw how consistently s***ty they were towards Johns and the new DC directors, who still made fire films overall too.

  • STAR WARS FUR

    ^ Will do a re-watch of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman before subscribing to HBO Max to watch Zack Snyder's art house blockbuster "Justice League"
