It's pretty clear at this point that Zack Snyder is going to keep releasing more and more of these trailers for his new and improved "Justice League" until he whips me and every superhero geek in the world into such a Nerd Frenzy by the time this thing comes out the whole country will be like one, big Sildenafil-fueled orgy at a ComicCon.
By way of background, here's how I've explained origin of the legendary Snyder Cut before:
It's a long and complicated history that began when the studio was already interfering with Snyder's production after the disaster that was "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Which I still watch from time to time, just to give me a nerd rage. Then partway through filming, Snyder had a personal family tragedy that required him to leave the project. One of my geek godkings Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the movie. He did what Joss Whedon does, which is punch up the script, lighten it up, add the jokes and the quips. And what resulted was two different movies sort of mashed together in a way that made almost zero narrative sense. In that way that they say a camel is a horse built by a committee.
Eventually Warner Brothers realized the interest in this is real. Real enough to justify giving the original director the $70 million it would take to complete his original vision. Not to mention the DC Cinematic Universe needs a win given their really low batting average thanks to strike outs like "Man of Steel," "BvS," (both of which were Snyder's), "Suicide Squad" and "Birds of Prey," as well as the base on balls that was "Wonder Woman 1984" not getting released yet.
And this, despite its slow-mo, black & whiteishness, Snyder's determination to do "Hallelujah" to death (not only has it been used in commercials, singing competitions, figure skating programs, and "Shrek," but he himself used it in "The Watchmen) and general somber tone, it has a ton of potential. The image of apocalyptic supervillain Steppenwolf alone looks like a huge upgrade, given that the one from the original movie looked like Whedon ordered his special effects team to give him the exact same, indistinct bad guy that's appeared in a dozen other movies and they nailed it. Plus you've got Amber Heard as Meera, the return of the Amazonian warriors, and more of the secondary characters? I'm intrigued.
There's still no definitive word as to when this will come out on HBO Max, but it can't be too soon. The future of all the big popcorn movies remains in total limbo. And once Season 2 of "The Mandalorian" runs its course, we'll need something to make life worth living. Make this so.
