Default The Official Zack Snyder Directs Everything Thread

I figured that since he had his own thread for "Man of Steel", that he should have one for this film as well.

Whether you love him or hate him as a Director, Zack Snyder has pretty much imprinted his name within the history books when it comes to comic book genre films.

To be the first Director that would have successfully and completely directed two Superman-related films, and to be the first one that will be responsible for not only bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen for the first time in cinema history... but to also be the one responsible for bringing both Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman onto the same live action film for the first time in cinema history.

Of a potentially guaranteed billion dollar(ish) movie(s) every single year for over a decade?

Maybe need is too strong a word. But really, really, really ****ing want works haha.

Any studio would.

I ain't talking as a fan of comics. I'm putting myself in the position of a greedy studio exec.

Marvel in 2013 made nearly 2 billion off of two movies. You telling me WB don't want a piece of that pie? Doesn't matter what else they go going on. 2 billion dollars is 2 billion dollars.

If successful, it's a licence to print money for over a decade basically.

Of course nothing is guaranteed. It's all a risk. It's basically investing for more money.

But when you could outlay 500 million dollars and there is a chance you can take 1.5 billion dollars (adding IM3 and Thor 2s production budgets together and estimating marketing costs etc) that is a risk i'd take if i was WB. 500 million is pocket change for them if they are as successful as we are led to believe.

Bottom line is they can do whatever they want, they're WB studios not DC studios. They're not like Marvel studios who obviously only make comic films. They're WB they have a wide range of genres. I guess some people don't grasp that. They're not just limited to do DC comic films.

And honestly, if that's not how one wants it, then no-one really is in any place criticize their game plan....because it's working like gangbusters.

If one really was looking at this from a business perspective solely...you'd applaud WB for being able to diversify the way they have. But only when one is motivated solely by comic-fan jealousy, etc. do they somehow claim that they're 'dragging behind' in anything.
I wish I could make this whole post my sig. This...completely.

They don't want to realize that, because they need something to complain about. If they had nothing to complain about they'd have no reason to live haha. Some people, I swear.

Just consider how many years WB fought the Court case to get all the rights for Superman character... which shows how much likelihood there is about them selling their entire DC property, yeah good luck to those who really want to buy DC.

during the Harry Potter/LOTR years where WB is ruling (and they still are and will still continue with spin offs) the fans of other book-movies are not complaining that the studios making the adaptations are slow, other studios just keeps on making viable series they can turn into a franchise even until now.

in the comicbook world on the other hand...

People don't realize that WB is the highest earning studio for many years, they are also the biggest TV production company, they don't have to follow Marvel model to get money.

As far as DC is concerned, they are the second largest comic book publisher with many of their titles selling in top ten, they are more successful with video games and DTV animated movies, so what ever they are doing is enough for them.

Apart from, this WB is starting a new shared DC Universe, if BvS and JL movies can earn a billion dollars each, where is the need to follow Marvel Studios blueprint ?

Only a select few fanboys want them to follow the Marvel way, which is not the only way to make comic book movies.

Before MoS, Cavill talks Superman/Batman crossover:
Quote:
Quote:
So – how do you get to that stage? I think a ‘Batman/Superman’ movie would be great because it brings that world together. Whether they’re going to let that happen, I don’t know. But a sequel to continue ['Man of Steel'] would certainly be amazing…and maybe start introducing some other things. Every single one of those…[which comes] next? I don’t know.”
http://screenrant.com/henry-cavill-j...n-man-steel-2/

Here, it shows discussions even BEFORE MoS have takin' place about following Man of Steel up with a Batman crossover and/or sequel to Man of Steel itself to introduce other characters through a MoS sequel, which is exactly what happened.

Then, this Zack Snyder interview promoting Man of Steel before theaters regarding a DCU (6:00- 6:34)

Quote:
"..just like you top down Superman, then you sort of have to top down the rest of the DC characters. Not to say they need their own movies or anything per-say like the Marvel model, which I'm also not ruling out, but I do think there's an opportunity to start to think how you might introduce other DC characters, whether that's a Justice League movie or if that's a way of expanding Superman's universe..that's the next conversation for me.."


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExT5rqFqef0

It's all there, way before MoS hit theaters, you just got to read between the lines and look in the right spots. I don't think Batman is forced into it at all. I think this is what they set out to do in the first place and all they did was commit to it and actually DO it. Good job, WB/DC.
It's in our faces and only now are we really starting to notice it.

Edit: Responding to Tra-El's post form the from the previous thread.

I don't hate Zack Snyder, but I'm kind of perplexed that he and Goyer (and Nolan, I guess) seem to be becoming DC's answer to Joss Whedon/Kevin Feige. I just don't think Snyder is great enough to deserve that much creative control.

they're going with what they know. and what they know isn't much. MoS made a lot of money and goyer has the nolan stink on him. that's all that matters to them. looking for other talent doesn't seem like heavy lifting to me, but i think they're just afraid of another gl so they just don't bother, even though it was probably because of studio meddling that gl bombed in the first place.

I don't see how one duo is better than the other...they both have created some great superhero fun, that has brought in some serious $$. Who do you think would be better to do it that has been proven to accomplish what these guys have?

I'm concerned. Usually there is a burn-out when they try and plow through big films like this. The third 'Pirates of the Caribbean' comes to mind. It's why Nolan liked to take breaks. I'd like to see WB/DC add other directors to the development of their cinematic universe such as Neill Blomkamp and Joseph Kosinski.
