    Snyder definitely loves the source material of his films - Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, Superman, etc. Just reading how hard he fought against things the studios wanted in Watchmen makes one appreciate that.

    His products may not fully deliver, but the guy does care.

    What did they want in watchmen?


    I also think that movie is underrated. I quite enjoy it. Even Ackerman. Everyone makes it out like her performance is the worst thing ever. It's really not. Sure she wasn't Haley as Rorschach good, but still.

    sorry if this has been posted or touched upon, but i found this very interesting, and a really smart way to wrap the WW mythos into this Universe.

    :whatever: Did I even say anything like that?

    I think he did a great job with MOS. There are some areas where I wish he did things differently, but I love overall. I hope the sequel is a step up.

    For people who are familiar with his work, how do you see Snyder handling a sequel?

    Thoughts?

    For me, I'm not a fan of turning the Amazons into a Kryptonian offshoot race, so does that also mean Aquaman's a Kryptonian offshoot as well and that's how they're going to handle all the Earth bound superhumans?

    And this is pretty much why I'm not worried about Supes getting shortchanged, I have no doubt it'll still be very much his movie.

    Just watching this short makes me think that he could have pulled off a REALLY GOOD Superman movie, if he had better people backing him up.[YT]ebXB0lBoaQ0[/YT]

    Granted, it's not really a narrative, but it does do justice to the majestic quality of the character.

    I'm REALLY happy that Terrio's on board.

    Pretty much agree with you. Lot's of "I'd say" say in that he's just giving what he thinks will happen well I could do that too.

    If the amazonian's origins were explained that they came from ancient alien race (not Kryptonians, or just explained that Greek G-ds were ancient aliens) would you guys still have a problem with that? Just curious.

    But I understand the apprehensions, and i first i liked the idea, maybe now, not so much.

    Well Zack Snyder does have a history of directing music videos so yeah I guess.

    It's basically saying "Hey we feel that Wonder Woman's background just seems too wacky to put on film so we're going to ground her a lot". They're apologizing about the source material and side-lining the fans, much like how Shane Black screwed up Iron Man 3.

    First of all, Jett doesn't really know anything. This is a fan idea that stated a while back. Second, this is not a smart idea at all. We don't need to turn Wonder Woman into a Superman related character.

    Wow. This was one of my worst fears about Wonder Woman :/
    Changing her origins like this is one of the most disrespectful things they could do to the character. Just wow. I really hope this doesn't come to pass.

    I actually like the idea of the Amazons being descendants, or race created by ancient Kryptonians, and in turn, inherited their birthing technology.

    However, don't jump to believe what Jett says.

    Jett sometimes has legitimate scoops, but its rare.

    And much of what he posted there is things people have been speculating and throwing about for months.

    Someone we shouldn't care, but to quickly put, he's the guy who claims to know "inside information" about movies but doesn't want to reveal them and as soon as they are (officially), he goes off "HA! I told you! I knew about it all along! :o"

    ^ They're ALWAYS unknown sources. If they're right, then they can say they mentioned it first, and if they aren't, they can say that their source was misinformed (and probably by a WB red herring, to boot)

    Since when? This guy claimed that there was no way Affleck would play Batman, was absolutely sure Black Mask and Hugo Strange would be in TDKR, and convinced people that Bale would be Batman again.

    The guy has contacts in WBs is friends with Michael Uslan producer of the Batman films.

    As for all that he's admitted he purposely put if some false info on WBs behalf. Also he never convinced people Bale would be Batman again all he said was there were talks and only an idiot would not believe that WBs tried to get Bale & Nolan back.
