Thread Zack Snyder is not getting paid for the Snyder Cut
He hasn’t seen it. It’s not hard to believe. He’s said multiple times that he has no intention of seeing it. When fans would post images from it on Vero and ask him if they were from his version or Joss’s he’d always be like “I have no idea what this is” or “what Russian Family?”

Thread Justice League Snyder Cut coming March 18th
It is only 4 minutes of additional photography shot in October/November of last year. That did not cost them 40 million dollars. The article is kind of all over the place. WB estimated they'd only need to spend 30 mil to finish the FX, but they underestimated by a lot. They also had to essentially re-score it as well. Before any additional footage was shot, they were probably already at 50-60 mil, with the additional photography adding another 10 mil on top of that. Also, I don't know where they got that Cavill shot more scenes, as he was still over in Europe filming Witcher during that process. We know Affleck, Leto, Manganiello, Fisher, Heard, Lennix, and possibly someone else shot additional footage.

Heh, same with me. Except I bought all 4. They were my first comic book purchase ever. Somehow, the stars aligned and my moms business partner decided to become a rep for DC Comics in our area, so he gave me 2 copies of every DC book every week for almost 2 years straight. I had the entire Knightfall and Return of Superman run, Bart Allen origin, Zero Hour, Milestone launch, etc. I couldn't believe it. The best part is when they'd send him some Marvel stuff to see what the competetion was up to and he'd just give them all to me cause he didn't care. Ended up with some pretty random and cool books.

From the interviews he's been giving the past few months it seems like it's a movie to close out his story (which is why it's 4 hours long), but that the teases there are still "opens" for future things to happen if WB decides to go forward with more. I just don't see those teases being anything super significant cause WB is def not continuing with his vision (unless it's an animated movie or comic book).

That's not exactly what's happening here though. The original idea was to have a part 1 and 2. Zack knows you can't have a 4 hour movie in theaters. It was probably going to be 2 2.5 hour movies. But since he's not getting that chance and HBO Max needs content, they allowed him to "finish" his story and it's now 1 4 hour movie instead 2 movies over 5+ hours.

Also, the original budget wasn't even that much. Zack shoots under budget and on time, that's why he keeps getting work. He just knows how to get the coverage he needs and ends up shooting way more than he knows he'll use. This is the one case that he's actually allowed to use all the footage he shot (and 4 extra minutes). I kinda wish this was split into 4 episodes just to keep engagement high, but oh well. Will be there day 1.

Not much changed in my high school after it happened. I graduated in 2000, so I still had a full year after Columbine in high school and we didn't have any different protocols or safety measures put in place. Probably because everyone thought it'd be a one off thing at the time. Of course there were kids talking about the kids that wore trench coats and were kinda outsiders, but nothing beyond gossip.

I shouldn't have put in the Thanos part as it's going to be a 1 to 1 comparison when Diana chops off Steppenwolf's head in JL. Focus on the picture.

What if those heads belonged to terrible warlords? I really don't have an issue with a character like Wonder Woman (an Amazon warrior princess) posing with heads of the terrible people she killed defending innocents in the 1800's. People did a lot of fucked up stuff back then. It's also a different WW than the one in the DCEU, one that doesn't even make sense as Zack said she hadn't found Steve yet. So how did she get off the island? It's just a one off photo used as a placeholder that Zack thought would be a good test image to get the "old timey" feel right with wardrobe and makeup. I think we're all just over analyzing it.

First collected is kinda hard since I started buying all 4 Superman series during the Death and Return of Superman arc... Man of Steel, Adventures, Superman, and Action Comics. My first issue of each was the cutout logo cover for when the 4 new Supermen appeared. First favorite female character was probably Rogue from the X-Men Animated Series. Mostly, cause she just seemed like a badass and was super strong and could fly. I knew of Supergirl and Batgirl, but didn't read any of their books at the time (only had money for the main line books... in fact I think only Supergirl had her own series at that point in the 90's).

They could just be these characters in the MCU timeline and there are no multiverse pulls. They could essentially be pulling a TV Flash multiverse rules. Where 90% of the characters are the same people across all multiverses, so in the main line MCU-verse, Electro, JJJ, and Doc Ock would look like their other versions.

No Republican going forward has anywhere near that much built in fame or presence.

Thread Shocking no one... Ghostbusters: Afterlife release date moved to June 11, 2021
People tend to just say 2 is the same as 1 in terms of plot and set pieces, but it still feels very different (to me at least). I saw GB2 in theaters when it was released and I was 7 and it was like the greatest thing ever in my life up to that point. I was in love with GB1 since I was 2 or 3 years old (first movie I can ever remember actually watching as my dad had recorded it on VHS off HBO back in the day).

I'm really curious what is going to happen if a vaccine is readily available in the spring, say around April? Enough people would probably get it and then think everything is fine (cause humans suck) and would go to the movies again in full capacity. Would the theater/movie industry agree to lower ticket prices for like 3 months so people would be more willing to go see multiple movies? Like a "Welcome Back" stimulus for themselves.

Don't talk shit about The Last Laugh and The Mechanic. Loved those episodes as a kid. Last Laugh gave us - "You killed Captain Clown... YOU KILLED CAPTAIN CLOWN!!!" The Mechanic was just so awesome to see some history and lore of this Batman. Seeing the first Batmobile was awesome and knowing that Bruce still needs help in developing his tools was good world building.

Because they also dumped a bunch of worthless players that provided zero offense and terrible defense. Abby, Ericsson, Daley, Perlini, Ehn, Bowey, and Howard. I'm not expecting total 180 flip from last season, but just by subtracting and adding those players above we are a better team that will win more games and not allow nearly as many goals. My guess for line combo's going into next season would be Bertuzzi, Larkin, Mantha Zadina, Fabbri, Ryan Filppula, Nielsen, Gagner Helm, Glendening, Erne Dekeyser, Hronek Nemeth, Stecher Staal, Merrill Biega Greiss/Bernier Wings will have the lowest scoring D in the league next season, but I'll take a year of that if that means we won't be giving up 4 goals a game.

Thread (THR) Jamie Foxx will return as Electro for ‘SPIDER-MAN 3’.
In a way it makes sense that the same actor can/should play the same character across the multiverse. DC has done it plenty of times in the Flash tv show. John Wesley Shipp played the OG Flash in the 90's, Barry's dad and Jay Garrick in the current Flash show. So, even if he's not A Barry Allen, he's still tangentially connected to the Flash universe and characters. Now, why we have 3 different looking Peter's, eh, some things don't always stay the same across the multiverse. But seeing Simmons as JJ from the Tobey series and Foxx as Electro from the Garfield series now all in this new 3rd universe, it makes sense if you think about comic book logic.

Thread What does a “New normal” post COVID look like ?
I think there will actually be less sickness once the vaccine is out, but in different ways. The mask "stigma" in the US has been dramatically lowered during this so people might actually wear them when they're sick with a cold or flu while out and about and at work. This will in turn create less sickness overall in the US during cold and flu seasons. I also think people will just generally have better hygiene and will actually wash their hands when they wouldn't have a year ago. A lot more people will continue to work from home now that companies see it as viable and possible more cost effective. This could lower traffic on the roads and by default create less pollution.

Hello fellow home theater peeps, I'm trying to solve an issue I've been having with my girlfriend's TV set up for the past year that I believe is being caused by an HDMI handshake issue. She has a that is wall mounted and is using a 25 foot HDMI cable () running through the wall down to a hole in the wall. There is a plastic tube that was installed in the wall when the place was built designed to house the cable and help guide it through the wall in an upside down U shape. The cable is running the correct way (TV end connected to TV and Source connected to other devices) and it's in the HDMI 2 slot, but we've been having intermittent connection issues as of late. We have the cable connected to an so she can switch between her Apple TV (the newest model) and her PS4 Pro. This was all working just fine for a while, but then it would start to disconnect randomly and the TV would flash a black screen or a "No Input" screen for a brief second before reconnecting. After a while she got fed up and just moved her PS4 upstairs, so we just ditched the HDMI switch and connected the Apple TV directly to the TV via that 25 foot cable. That seemed to work fine for months. Then two weekends ago she wanted to move the PS4 back downstairs to the main TV so I hooked everything back up again and it was working for about a week (mostly, she said it was doing the quick disconnects when she was using the PS4 a few times, but never when using the Apple TV). Well this past weekend it got worse. The AppleTV and PS4 would both flicker and most of the time not even display a picture on the TV. I tried disconnecting the switch again and hooking the PS4 up directly, but it was still doing the same thing. The AppleTV seemed to fare a bit better, but would still disconnect occasionally. Does this TV have known handshake issues with 4K content that I'm not aware of? Is the HDMI cable I'm using ok to use behind drywall at that length? Am I just missing something else that I didn't think of? Thanks in advance for any help!

My friends and I got near the front, but the 30 minutes were up so we thought we were out of luck. Boy were we wrong. Mr. T wouldn't let anyone in the line leave until he met and had a chat with everyone. I remember him saying to one of the booth workers, "You see all these people in line here? These people are here to see me and I will not leave until I've met every single one of them. They're taking the time out of their day, the least I can do is give them that time." We got photos with him and he'd put his chains around our necks if we wanted. I was in awe. He was so energetic and bubbly. This was also during the time of him doing those 1-800-Collect commercials, so one of my friends called one of our other friends that couldn't make it down to E3 with us and had Mr. T talk to him over the phone and berate him for not using 1-800-Collect to make the call.

Not neccessarily... Zack had shot like 4 or 5 hours of footage during the original shoot. He tends to overshoot things so he has options in the edit bay. Of all that footage, maybe 25 to 35% of it made it into the theatrical cut after Joss Whedon reshot existing scenes or added completely new scenes (like the Batman rooftop fight at the beginning and the Russian family subplot).

Zack's theatrical version would've probably been 3 hours long, but the version we got was 2 hours on the dot.

Thread Zack Snyder’s Justice League Coming to HBO Max 2021
The biggest fear I have about it is if Zack just puts out what his original intention was for the movie... that it ends on a cliff hanger to be finished in his never will be made Justice League 2 and 3. If he does that, then yeah, critics and fans will be like, "Wait, what was the point of it then???" 4 years and 30 million for a story that has no end??? So I really hope he tweaks it so it closes out his 3 movie arc and we can all just move on with the current DCEU and hope they use Flashpoint fuckery to make everything make sense again.

Thread Zack Snyder’s Justice League Coming to HBO Max 2021
Also something to think about in terms of why would they spend up to 30 mil to do this... WB/HBO can spend 30 mil to get 6 weeks worth of content out of a movie/series ORRRR spend 100 mil to make a new show that can take up the same time. And since they can't exactly shoot new things right now, this is a win for them.

I mean, yes, the top level story is probably going to end up being the same. Batman gets the league together to stop Darkseid/Steppenwolf, realizes they can't do it without Superman, resurrect him, team up and win the day. But that journey is going to be different and maybe better, maybe worse?

Thread Actor Ray Porter confirmed to be Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League”
Sigh... think of it like this. Zack shot 5 hours of footage for JL. Obviously he never intended for all 5 hours to be used in the movie, but probably close to 3 of it for sure. Now, out of the 2 hour theatrical cut, MAYBE 40-50 minutes was Zack's footage, the rest was reshoot or new footage from Whedon. So yeah, we've only seen maybe 40-50 minutes of 5 hours of footage that Zack shot. He has the rest of it. That's what we're going to see. The movie will be different by default. I never expected Zack to shoot more footage for this. I always assumed it would just be his version with finished CG and a new score. However, with the reveal that they're going to allow additional ADR, I now assume he's going to use that and maybe some full CG scenes to close out his trilogy and tie up any loose ends.

Thread Someone explain the DCEU timeline canon to me now or did they just go fuck it?
As of now the theatrical version of Justice League will be the canon one. Aquaman makes one mention of it in his movie and Shazam featured a headless Superman cameo. WW84 being set in the past only contradicts the line from BvS where she said she stepped away from Man's world for 100 years, but there's still wiggle room around that depending on how WW84 handles it. We see her breaking cameras in the mall as to not record her so she may have been doing things in a small local vacinity and only during the time period of the movie which just becomes a legend that no one really believes. Reeves said that his Batman movie would be in the DCEU back in 2017, but obviously now it will be its own thing. Too many things changed to just say Pattinson is playing the same Batman as Affleck. The Flash movie might be a way to consolidate everything and merge it into one Earth, but until we get a plot synopsis, we won't know anything.

Thread Rumor: Snyder Cut of Justice League Announcement Coming Wednesday
The major differences between the theatrical and Zack cut would be... Cyborg changes/additions - Footage of Victor playing football and winning the game looking to the stands to find his dad, who is not there - We would see the car accident that killed his mom and injured him - Discovering his abilities such as flight and how he deals with the massive amounts of information he can now process - The Parademon's finding Silas and kidnapping him which Victor tries to stop, but fails - More STAR LABS research into the Mother Boxes featuring Ryan Choi (the new Atom) - Silas dies in the Snydercut Wonder Woman changes/additions - The museum heist is somewhat successful as the bomb does indeed go off before Diana can throw it up and out of the building - No Flash falling into her boobs moment - The Lasso of Truth moment with Aquaman sitting on it wouldn't be in Zack's cut - She kills Steppenwolf by beheading him... The head rolls through the boomtube right to Darkseid's foot where he looks down and crushes it with his foot Batman changes/additions - Entire intro fight on the rooftop would be gone - No dumb jokes like, "Yep, that's definitely bleeding" or the weird smile face gif - No puffy Ben - Much more Bruce searching for Arthur - Slightly different interaction when he meets Barry - More back and forth between him and Diana - More Bruce researching the Mother Boxes and Kryptonian DNA Flash changes/additions - We'd get to see Iris West and Barry saving her from a car accident - Few more fight scenes added (like the stuff that was in the trailer where he dashes into all the Parademon's) - End credits scene with him and Superman racing would be cut Aquaman changes/additions - Way more time spent in "not" Atlantis - Vulco (William Dafoe) would have scenes with Arthur telling him about something or other Superman changes/additions - Obviously all the terribad CGI lip scenes would be gone - More of Superman fighting the League after he got resurrected - More of Clark and Lois at the farm - Superman finding the black suit - Superman talking to Alfred would be put back in General changes - Original Junkie XL score put back in - End movie red sky CGI back to the blue tinted version - Entire Russian family subplot cut from movie - More time spent by the League in other locations to build story - Flash back scene of Amazonians, Atlantians, and Gods fighting Steppenwolf would now open the movie and feature a young Darkseid along with a longer battle sequence showing Zeus and Ares - Different Green Lanterns would be featured somewhere - Martian Manhunter may have made an appearance There's probably a bunch more I missed, just going off the leaked footage and storyboards/comments Zack made on Vero over the past year that I can remember off the top of my head.

Thread DCEU Era |OT3| It's Harley's World and We're Just Living In It
I bet the movie studios will start by releasing their smaller budget movies first so that if the crowds are lower than expected, they won't lose out on making back the budgets as badly. Putting out a 30 mil dollar movie and getting 40 back is fine... putting out a 200 mil dollar movie and getting 70 back is not fine. Of course there's the theory that the first major blockbuster released could just explode in ticket sales because people will just want to see SOMETHING new and get out of the house. Movies are the best form of escapism and something like Wonder Woman could smash records if timed right.

I was able to see more detail in dark scenes without having the blacks washing out. It's still really odd to me that the PS4's "Automatic" setting doesn't seem to work. I have my PS4 going to a Denon receiver and am now wondering if that's the reason for the PS4 not detecting the correct RGB color range.

Sigh... time for the weekly LG/PS4 Pro RGB Full/Limited topic again, sorry. Current set up is a LG C7 in Game Mode with Black Level set to Low in both SDR and HDR PS4 Pro is set to Automatic for the Color Space Range I'm noticing that using any video app (Netflix, Amazon, YouTube TV, HBO Go) in SDR is just crushing the black levels on my set. Yet, every calibration setting guide I find (RTings, etc) say to leave the black level on Low for SDR content. Generally this works 'ok', but more and more it's bugging me when watching movies. Side note, I'm also changing the TV to IFS Bright Room when watching movies. Should I be forcing my PS4 to be in Limited mode when I watch video content in SDR? EDIT - If I use the Netflix or Amazon app through the LG TV app, not the PS4, I don't appear to have the crushed black problems. However, since the LG content store doesn't have HBO Go, I'm forced to use that through the PS4 which is where I'm really noticing the problems.
