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.
