Zach Snyder’s Justice League | Official Trailer | HBO Max



I'm excited to finally see this movie.  Not that I think it'll be good, but it's been so long that I'm ready for the payoff.  Seeing Joker in what appears to be the Nightmare Batman parts of the movie is not where I expected him.  Also, seeing so much Darkseid in the trailer makes me think Synder is cramming all his "Part 2" ideas into this.

If I remember right, its 4 hours long. no need to cram part 2 into the 1st movie, when it's long enough to be both.

I haven't watched it yet, but I feel like if anyone at WB had real faith in this, they'd released it as 2 separate movies instead of blowing the wad all in one.
or they would have kept it as the 4 part mini-series and drawn in more subscribers

Wait, you men it won't be a 2 or 4 parter? When did that change?

It probably makes sense to just get it over with. If the first part bombs they lose out on subscribers/interest for the latter episodes and potentially lose out on net subscribers from the folks waiting until all 4 release to sub but the bad word of mouth kills off those people's interest by the time the final part drops.

Or it's what Snyder wanted and I'm overthinking the decision.

Honestly Justice League wasn't terrible before, and this version looks like it was cooked better. My biggest complaint with Zach Snyder is he doesn't know how to edit a movie before he starts filming, which when released in theaters means it'll be cut to the point of not making sense. That being said if its 4 hours of epic coherent stuff then there isn't a problem. I wouldn't watch a 4 hour movie in theaters, but I would at home. It is going to be interesting to see what's different. Whole major plot points are different, but it's mainly in relation to cut scenes and CGI.

Hopefully the Ayer cut follows. When I heard WB/DC was doing recuts to make it less dark I knew there might be problems. I also want to see an alternate cut of Batman Forever.  Seeing some deleted scenes I know there is a different movie under there. I wonder what movie you could make with alternate takes and cut scenes. I probably said that before.

Just wrapped up season 2 of His Dark Materials. Highly recommended if you like Harry Potter or Narnia type stuff. The younger actors give great performances and the animal companions (daemons) are super cute.

I suspect they decided to just do one four hour movie after HBO did away with the free trial. No need to try and lock people in for a full month by stretching out the content anymore.

I really enjoyed season 1 of Miracle Workers and highly recommend it to anyone who liked The Good Place. Season 2 is basically a different show entirely thought the cast and crew appear to be the same. I gave it a chance but it did not take. Miracle Workers is a TBS show but I found it on HBO Max.

New Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer is out and it looks so fun and I love all the easter eggs in the Warner Bros catalog.

I'm with you on the WB cameos.

However, I'm a little disappointed WB went with CGI for even part of the movie rather than fully hand-drawn animation. I like that we get some cel-animation; I prefer the look.

Apparently, Zendaya is voicing Lola Bunny. Interesting. Glad Malcolm D. Lee de-sexualized Lola. That was a weird time when the original came out.

Still surprised Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam are still around considering their entire gimmick is shooting things in a cartoon for kids. 🤷‍♀️

Also, kicking the ball is a turnover, Granny. Fucking amateurs...

I liked the Kristen Wiig Lola bunny on that one show. Actually, Zendaya has a very similar delivery as Mary Jane on Spider-man.

The trailer looks like WB was trying to find a secondary use for Ready Player One Assets.

I love how the Batman Caped Cursader is using the same font of the original Animated series.  And showing a new look for Batman that leans into the mature noire aspect of the animated series.  It seems like we may ACTUALLY be getting a show that is going to try to do the same thing the original animated series was...a mature animated series for adults.  This is a good thing.  And with the Superman series coming out too...even with the different art styles (That would actually help define the tonal differences between the characters) could lead to a renewed Justice League Animated series.  I can dream right?  Right? Can history please repeat itself here?

New teaser is out for Space Jam:  A New Legacy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRInjhFOKqQ

This is going to be so fun and I love how the teaser isn't taking itself seriously. All tongue in cheek.
 

As an aside what is the matter with youtube embeds on here? Not working like it used to.

In case you weren't following this story, or weren't impacted by it, HBO Max completely borked it's Apple TV app to the point that people were complaining it was unusable.  They fixed it this week, after all the complaint.  Basically, HBO decided to hell with Apple's native playback tools in favor of their own.  This basically disabled pause and rewind features on their videos and other issues.  It's still unclear why they rolled out a self-sabotaging update, but the man in charge of the platform promised a fix and delivered saying "no excuses from us" while also not explaining WTF happened.
