I mean what I’m about to say sincerely…
To the good folks who were part of the #releasethesnydercut online movement, congrats on the announcement of the release of the, well, “Snyder Cut” of JUSTICE LEAGUE.
As a fellow fan — and as someone who has spent the last 22 years running a website that respectfully lobbies the owners of Batman (AT&T/Time-Warner/DC Comics/Warner Bros. Pictures) to make good Batman movies — I salute you all. I’m sure many of y’all feel the same way I did back in 2005 when I first saw BATMAN BEGINS, so trust me, I get it.
I also wanted to say that I was wrong about Warner Bros. — or in this case, HBO MAX, apparently — providing the cash to finish and release the Snyder Cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE. Yep, I was wrong and I’m admitting it because if anything, I’m a stand-up guy.
BOF will cover it and review each episode — because yeah, it’s going to be cut up into, like, 6 episodes — fairly and objectively. Hell, we’ll even have podcasts and vlogs to discuss it!
Will I personally watch it? Probably not. Even though I borderline love MAN OF STEEL (I watch it at least 2 or 3 times a year), I’m just not a fan of BATMAN v SUPERMAN and Mr. Snyder’s take on Batman, Superman, and DC mythology; so I’ve got zero interest. Plus, I’ve got a new solo Batman film — Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN starring Robert Pattinson — to cover here on BOF and look forward to seeing on the big screen.
Finally, I do want to acknowledge Henry Cavill’s awesome Instagram post after he participated in Mr. Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL watch party/JLSC announcement. Check it…
Right on! I wish those with power had said the same thing long ago. Hopefully, the other, very small, segment of the #releasethesnydercut online movement — the ones that have spewed toxic hate, cyber-harrassed people online, and embarrassed good fandom for the last couple of years — will take Mr. Cavill’s advice to heart as I plan on doing.
And yes, I still believe there’s a way for HC to return as Superman for a straight-up, Superman-centric sequel to MAN OF STEEL!
Can someone at WB give Brad Bird a call…maybe? – Bill “Jett” Ramey
