there's probably going to be a gap in film releases due to the coronavirus, similar to the writer's strike years back except they couldn't just get non-guild workers or something. so if this is mainly going to be just a new edit of existing footage and new special effects and no need for reshoots, it kind of makes me wonder if they are doing this now so they have at least something 'new' to release in some form to fill out the gap. there were insiders saying as recently as last november iirc that even releasing a snyder cut on hbo max was unlikely.
or all the denials were just a cynical way to build hype and make fans feel personally and emotionally invested in the idea of one (also with people like ben affleck making rare appearances on social media to post the hashtag and drum up buzz), thus priming them to subscribe to yet another streaming service to finally see this film they've hyped up in their heads.
anyway i just hate the idea of seeing smug nerds being all 'we told you it was real' and will be muting related words wherever i can.
It honestly needs to be more like a 7 out of 10 to be worth anything. I mean, it should at least make Justice League an average, entertaining affair. The original version was fucked. Tonally dissonant and just.. Wrong. As if it wasn't sure what it was, and confused over its own identity.
I'm hoping this actually can at least be itself and be entertaining at the very least.
