The infamous extended cut of Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' was announced just a month or two ago. If you're not familiar with what that is, I'll give you a quick breakdown. Basically, the Justice League movie that came out a while back was just awful. The pacing was awful, the editing was probably the worst I've ever seen, the story didn't make sense and it was incredibly rushed.
Fast forward a good while and talks of Zack Snyder's director's cut began to make the rounds. Snyder claimed his directors cut was what he originally wanted the film to be and that he was held back by WB. He also said the cut was "almost finished" and "just needs some reshoots".
Fast forward a bit more and now we know for sure the movie (a series cut into 4 hour long episodes) is official. It's received a huge $70 million plus budget and will be in the works for a good while longer.
But here's the thing.. The insane budget, the length of time needed to "finish reshoots" just don't add up. $70 million dollars is a whole new movie. I honestly can't believe they're giving Snyder another chance with another big budget to "reshoot" the same awful movie. He must have really, really shown them something absolutely impressive to pull that off.
Also, I just read that Jared Leto's Joker will be in the Snyder cut as well.... Come on.... Leto's Joker was unanimously hated and comically awful. Why would they do this. He's not even in the original Justice League..
