I'm pretty much at the end of my rope when it comes to spreading negativity about the DCEU as the Snyder-era is behind us, but I'm really, really having trouble wrapping my head around how this movie has had so many people involved and so much money put into it.... and it looks like that?

I don't typically feel confident in my box office predictions, but unless this movie has an absolutely amazing story with A+ performances.... I don't know if this will outgross BvS. It looks worse, and the hype for it is significantly lower.

So JL tickets are suppose to go on sale on October 30. Less than 3 weeks away from the movie and more two and a half weeks. Is there a reason why they didn't go with the 2 months like Thor or TLJ?

The problem I have is the Avengers core cast (Downey, Evans, Ruffalo, Johanssen and Mackie) are such outstanding actors and have such tremendous chemistry together...how in the world are Affleck, Gadot and Co supposed to compete with that? Of the JL Cast, only Gadot I think could hold her own vs the Avengers core ensemble.

I don't think anyone's claiming Gadot is an outstanding actor after one breakout film where she plays a character that totally suits her.

Yeah the red hue in these scenes is really bad and to be honest I just don’t think I can sit through this movie. Nothing has gotten me amped and it just seems so bad. I can’t put it any other way.

At this point seeing JL in theaters is basically just an obligation as a DC fan. Can't wait for the new era of DC films.

Lets face it, everyone is psycho-amped for TLJ. Coming out this close to that 400 pound gorilla is not going to help JL, or Thor for that matter.

It looks about as bad as X-Men Apocalypse if not worse.

I am bringing blue glasses to the theater to counteract the red. Making it thus neutral.

My generous hypothesis: Snyder is burned out and needs a break.

Hopefully he makes a comeback with the rumored Ayn Rand movie.

TLJ isn't going to effect Ragnarok's BO in any significant way considering they're 6 weeks apart, and that's just in the US. Factoring in international release dates Ragnarok has a seven and a half week headstart.

I think Snyder needs to step away from blockbusters and CBMs and try to make a few small-scale films.

The red scenes in JL are the definition of visual noise.

Has anyone made more comic book movies than him and Singer?

Snyder (Watchmen, 300, MOS, BvS & JL)
Singer (X-Men, X2, SR, DOFP & Apocalypse)

The only people who come close are the Russo bros. with two Cap and two Avengers movies after 2019.

The best thing that can be said about Snyder is that he has a better track record than Singer, both behind the camera and in terms of how he treats his staff.

Which one of Snyder's movies is better than X2 or DOFP?

Or am I reading your post incorrectly?

I think Russos will reach them if they decide to continue working with MCU after Avengers 3 and 4.

Both Snyder and Singer outstayed their welcome.

I prefer each of 300, Watchmen, and MoS to X2 and DoFP.

I've watched both 300 and MoS 5 or 6 times. X2 I've watched twice and completely forgotten the plot both times. DoFP is very mediocre, that was just Singer coasting on Vaughn's good work.
