But here's the thing, for a massive blockbuster like Justice League you NEED a director that can deliver on visual spectacle especially if someone like Darkseid is going to be involved in the story. His visuals are absolutely breathtaking, and the way he directs action is uncanny. You need a director that can handle an immense scale like that and that is 100% Snyder.

To be blunt, I can only see JL going three ways.
Simplistic and satisfying. (300/DoTD-MAYBE MOS)

Ambitious and divisive-(Watchmen..and MOS to an extent)

Bad :P

I guess when push comes to shove I'd want the second one for JL. Because Avengers ate Justice League's lunch in terms of creating a simplistic series of events with good character moments.

Though I think I'll be arguing about that movie with all my film buddies

Which would give it an edge over Avengers. The most people argue is whether Loki was a strong enough villain or not

Time will tell. I'm incredibly excited, but at the same time i'm not going to bury my head in the sand and pretend i'm 100% confident.
I'm more concerned with Goyer holding the keys than I am with Snyder. Then again, I do enjoy Snyder's visuals and the style of his movies (saw Watchmen and 300).

Honestly, that might give me more satisfaction than the movies themselves.
LMAO

I keep checking the news to see if a bunch of Superman Returns apologists fans have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge yet.

Goyer is like the dude with the crush who is afraid of committing to a relationship. He keeps his love interest nearby, but is afraid to embrace her and be responsible for her.

On the other hand, Snyder is the only director I've seen accused of following the source too closely (outside of MOS, that is).

I'd gladly see what Zack'd have to offer when paired up with more respectful screenwriters than Goyer (who knows comics and has even written a few, yet seems to feel like he can't just bring it to life).

Also, this is what a Snyder/Timm collab looks like
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


I'd love to see something similar with live action.

If Zack Snyder could do some of that Golden Age imagery come to life on the big screen i would have a newfound respect for him.

Snyder is the one director I can see bringing the visual aspects of the Justice League to life. It's all in the script and the writing. Which is why I hope Chris Terrio and Affleck take up the challenge of crafting the script.

Yes, but preferably you would have a director who could deliver on story and character as well. Forgetting that is how we got gems like The Lone Ranger.

I guess him saving the kids on the bus or devoting the better part of his life to helping people as a lonely drifter doesn't count. And Metropolis had the world engine unleashed upon it, and much of the fight is around the blast radius.

"DOTD isn't as deep as the original." Well, then watch the original. If remakes had the exact same obligations as originals, then all they are just big budget reshoots, rather than reinterpretations.

Zack is a flawed filmmaker who gets a disproportionate amount of hate.
Agreed with almost everything. I have to make clear a few things.
Nobody is perfect tarara Obviously he had its own isssues as any of the directors. Even Nolan is criticized by many, unfairly. But its part of his own style and Snyder's keeping his own style is what I'd call a great treat from a director.
From what I thank snyder and goyer, nolan is that they gave back Superman's balls again, making him relatable in this century. I guess that didn't go well with some people's desires of sticking to those things.

to those stupity on the "claims" on those movies. I guess when some see a real threat they always expect that the hero do everything besides to fighting to a uncontrollable force and no casualties with that big invasion. I guess someone missed the part when he saved besides all you've mentioned, Hardy, Lois (three times), the chopper guy, the family and of course all the world by first sacrificing him for the humans surrendering to Zod, and of course STOPPING THE WE. Many didn't notice also that while the destruction was happening Superman was on the other side of the world fighting for them. Another thing that really some can't understand is that in the damage of the fight we haven't seen any human casualties, cause all the events happened before and most of the buildings were empty (of course could be some but its a normal thing, we saw Zod launching Supes on the buildings to harm people. Yeah a easy thing to control right?) also when we saw Superman figthing Zod he always tried to do the less of damage and that is a Superman thing IMO). I mean when I saw these kind of ???? I'm like really did you watch the movie?

One thing I can really thank Snyder is he was made, he didn't born being the hero we fans love, and that was one of the most factual things I liked about it. And as some pal said here and some people can't get it is that this is the story where Kal/Clark is becoming SUPERMAN.

P.S. The comments are not directed to you Coco, but all the creators of that "things"

Yeah, I do think that too many critics and fans just had an ax to grind with Snyder from the get-go. I think if you would have slapped another director's name on MOS, at least a few more reviews would have been positive. I can't prove this of course but I've read way too many comments online (well before this movie came out) calling Snyder a manchild and taking other shots at his abilities. And to be fair, he's has some missteps (SUCKER PUNCH). But if we're only going to judge a director by his failures then I guess Captain America: The Winter Soldier shouldn't have been given a chance because it was by the guys who did You, Me and Dupree.

Totally agreed. I mean you can like or dislike the movie but another thing is to give that kind of nonsense that obviously will be taken in consideration on the quality of the review/opinion someone is posting.

Funny enough, I think Snyder's visual skill and notoriety are what draw ATTENTION to himself in ways that most directors slide under the radar. Many people know what movies are his, while most other directors don't go noticed.

Thus, Snyder has a lower reputation than the people who directed X-men Origins Wolverine and Ghost Rider

LOL, true. And I respect Snyder for actually trying to have a distinctive style; to make his movies feel like their own thing. In contrast, I find Whedon - who has an ARMY of worshipers - to make very ordinary looking films. There's nothing wrong with that but at least in terms of visual style, they almost look like they could have been directed by any competent director.

the so called movie "critics" nowadays reviews movies for what it could or should have been instead of appreciating the movie for what it really is.

well GL was a long time ago, critics today are very different.


anyway, to me GL was just ok, everyone just joined the hate bandwagon. most people say it was bad but I think it was not that bad.

**** the critics. They're just a bunch of arrogant, pretentious, bitter, cynical wannabe filmmakers who spend their lives criticising other people's hard work because they have no talent whatsoever to do it themselves.

I'm assuming.

enjoying a movie is subjective, reviewing movies should ideally be objective. you can enjoy a good and bad movie, same with reviewing them.

I don't think art criticism can ever be objective. Everyone has different tastes.
