The more I look at the picture of the canisters the more CGI they look. They look like a CGI image that just needs a few renders.

I def want to know what else he's photo shopping and lying about.

I think it's more like the sort of "HDRI" effect that photo has. High pass filter in Photoshop easily creates that look. Can make stuff look more fakey but also more high detailed.

That's a good observation too! Thanks for pointing it out.

One thing is for sure though. Snyder likes to "edit" pretty much everything he puts on the web in some sort of way.

Jeez. He's fighting for his art, his movie, the movie he devoted years of his life developing and the guy even lost his daughter in the process.

Any person who truly loves the art of filmmaking would support this movement, like Kevin Smith, Rob Liefeld, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, Ryan Reynolds and some other people. I'm pretty sure Nolan would also support Zack and say "Yes, he's fighting for his vision, his movie and I'm totally agree". Btw, was Nolan who brought Zack into the DCEU, so he definitely appreciates Zack's work.

I don't care if is Snyder, Spielberg, Shyamalan, Johnson... I would always stand by them, those guys behind the camera. Studio executives don't care about art, about filmmaking, they just want one thing: money.

I guess some people are just mad because the Snyder Cut movement keeps growing and getting bigger and there's nothing they can do to stop it. Guess what? No, you can't. Deal with it and let people be happy.

God who cares? It's a blockbuster corporate product. So many better films have come out since then. Y'all need to let it go. And yeah those pics could be shopped too. He got caught lying this time so who knows when he lied in the past.

Go watch Knives Out or something jeez.

Who cares? Well, I guess you just ran out of arguments

Btw, I do care and apparently, a lot of people do as well. And since you mentioned Knives Out, imagine Rian Jonhsson having that movie destroyed and butchered by some studio. We would never be able to experience Johnson's true vision. Wouldn't that be horrible? That's my point.

Knives Out is an original IP that is released by a much smaller studio than WB. Justice League is not Snyder's original work and he was working for multiple bosses on this film.

It's one of the major issues with late stage capitalism. The film was never truly Snyder's since the IP has multiple people overlooking it. His work could legally have been taken away from him at any time and WB has every right to keep it or release it.

If Johnson were in the same position as Snyder, I'd feel bad for him because dude is genuinely a great writer and director and Knives Out was his original work 100% and no one else's.

With comic book movies, I'm not inclined to care as much. Snyder just seems like an attention ho now.

Justice League was never going to be a 100% Snyder product. Man of Steel wasn't (product placement porn galore) and BvS wasn't (so many fucking rewrites and pushbacks).

I genuinely do like Man of Steel and BvS but let's not act like the dude is Picasso making some great generation defining art. They're corporate advertisements for toys.

I’m on Snyder’s side because of mustachegate alone. They butchered his film so badly and tried to frame it as his “assembly cut” was unwatchable. I think most directors agree: all assembly cuts are unwatchable lol.

He says a cut exists? I believe him. Is it fully finished? I don’t know. What I don’t get is if some of you don’t care about JL, why don’t you just move on instead of telling people not to care about something they’re emotionally invested in?
But whatever keep the banter going... as long as it’s civil :lol:

Whoa slow down there dude. We can't have people be civil on the internet now. EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE A FIGHT OKAY?
