Superman VS Batman - Movie Thread (May 6, 2016) - Page 7

This was Gilliams idea so if you think Snyder changed too much, then this one is a much stupider change and Snyder knows that:
What he did was he told the story as-is, but instead of the whole notion of the intergalactic thing, which was too hard and too silly, what he did was he maintained that the existence of Doctor Manhattan had changed the whole balance of the world economy, the world political structure. He felt that that character really altered the way reality had been. He had the Ozymandias character convince, essentially, the Doctor Manhattan character to go back and stop himself from being created, so there never would be a Doctor Manhattan character. He was the only character with real supernatural powers; he went back and prevented himself from being turned into Doctor Manhattan, and in the vortex that was created after that occurred, these characters from Watchmen only became characters in a comic book.

So the three characters, I think it was Rorschach and Nite Owl and Silk Spectre, they’re all of the sudden in Times Square and there’s a kid reading a comic book.. and he’s like, ‘Hey, you’re just like in my comic book.’ It was very smart, it was very articulate, and it really gave a very satisfying resolution to the story, but it just didn’t happen. Lost to time.

Zack Snyder can be a capable director, I think that much we can agree on. DotD and 300, while not masterpieces, were very good films. He brought a sensationalized rawness to them that I thought suited and elevated the source material. He followed them up with Watchmen and Sucker Punch which I personally thought were stinkers and started his transition into hack director aka Bryan Singer 2.0

Re: Man of Steel, I thought it had some fine moments but ultimately, I was left unimpressed with the overall film. Essentially felt like a Transformers movie at times with the Autobots/Decepticons being replaced by Kryptonians.

Now, here is where I go a little out there because while I might not be Snyder's biggest fan, I think the studios made the right decision by keeping him on the Supes franchise despite a rather so-so first movie. The reason I say that is because hopefully it will allow him to find his footing and execute better the second time around. History is on his side after all with X2, Batman Returns, Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, etc.

Also, this Batman and Superman movie is one for the most sought for film with the two most recognizable heroes in the world, this is a huge film that no one really expected to be made. Trust me, this film will more than be a blockbuster just off the name alone.

Lol, this is delusional fanboy shit. This movie will be shit. Sure, it'll make it's money back overseas but it will be shit. As in poop. As in feces. Aside from 12 year olds and Aspies and retarded foreigners no one will like this movie.

The movie very well might end up being shit, but you're kidding yourself if you think it won't make a ton of money.

The Dark Knight Rises was fucking terrible. On par with one of the Transformers movies for ludicrous plot and shitty character development.

That said, I think SvB will be worse.

Kevin Smith Drops More Details About Ben Affleck's Batsuit

Now that Snyder has revealed the full suit (in black and white albeit), Smith has further teased us fanboys on Hollywood Babble-On. "As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, ‘Is that the picture you saw?’ No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw. They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I've seen some people online go, ‘Why is this f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one f***ing color.’ It’s like, ‘Dude, that’s a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome.”

Smith went on to continue raving about the new Batsuit and its striking similarities to the suit featured in The Dark Knight Returns. “That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like. So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you’ve seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it’s the exact f***ing outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.”

When Smith's co-host, Ralph Garman, said he thought the new Batmobile looked similar to the Tumbler, Smith stated “I will put this to you. What if it’s one of a few Batmobiles? What if that’s one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that’s the case.”

AMC Movie Talk’s John Campea has the most logical explanation for what the title really means, and it should hold fans over a bit until we get an official comment from Zack Snyder. Here’s what Campea had to say about the title on AMC Movie Talk:
I have a legal background. The whole “v” thing, that is an adversarial thing in courts. When you go to court and you’re reading old court cases it’s “Smith v California”. The first name in the title of a court case is the grieving party. It’s the one bringing the grievance. The one saying the first party has a problem with the second party. And that’s the legal way that that’s set up. So when I look at that title, it makes sense that they left the “s” out of the “v” [in "vs."]. Now it makes sense to me. Batman is the one coming after Superman in this film. I have no doubt about that.
