The Snyder Cut Being Released

Okay, I have to admit, I did not see that coming.

Zak Snyder’s long called for (by some, not me) version of his Justice League film is to be released on HBO Max next year, possibly as a complete film, possibly as a broken apart mini-series.

There’s a follow-up article over at the Beat which talks about why this might not be such a good idea from the point of Warner Bros being seen to give in to some of the worst elements of the internet.

For me, not having liked any of Snyder’s work in the DC world, this is more of a curiosity thing. Will four hours of a miserable Superman; a grim, grey, washed out world where heroes have no regard for anything like the safety of civilians; and a Batman convinced Superman is the enemy, even be enjoyable?

I doubt it, to be honest.

That would make me and Mrs Earth-Prime very happy.
