So they decided to cut Zack off
Then delete his shit out…to cut it from 3hrs to 1:20mins
[li]LONGER: Began with Bruce recruiting Aquaman. It was basically the same scene as I saw in the theatrical version this weekend. However, some lines were added by Whedon and some Zack bits were cut. Aquaman was originally more resilient and shut-off to Bruce here.[/li][li]DELETED: Barry Allen visits the library because he knows that Iris West is there. He tries to talk to her but fumbles and blushes. He mentions that “he might go and see his Dad today”. Iris likes his awkwardness but doesn’t think he’s all that special. We see Barry breaking the window with his finger to kind-of impress Iris (our FIRST look at his powers). When everyone and Iris are surprised at this window breaking, Barry just says “weak glass” and walks out.[/li][li]LONGER: History Lesson. But just by some bits. What I was most surprised by was that WB cut out dialogue by the Green Lantern, Zeus and even Ares (Yes, he was there too). They had a couple of lines each. As did Robin Wright and Hippolyta. They just kept the action in and clicked out all dialogue, I guess.[/li][li]DELETED: After taking the Mother Box from Themiscyra, Steppenwolf actually “talks” to the Box. His mother, Heggra’s essence is alive in the Mother Boxes and bringing them all together would unleash her powers – finally giving Steppenwolf an edge over his younger brother – Darkseid. That is what his plan was originally. I thought for sure that they would keep this scene in because they used a dialogue from this scene in the trailers – “No protectors here. No Lanterns. This world will fall. You will be free, mother.”[/li][li]DELETED – Cyborg’s previous life. He plays a great football match that his MOTHER (Yes, she was cast as well) attends. Afterwards, they drive home. Victor is angry that his Dad never made it while his mother tries to console him. Victor just keeps getting angry and lashing out, loses control of the car – causing a fiery crash.[/li][li]LONGER – The Gordon scene had a little setup that I didn’t see in the theatrical version. Gordon dismisses a Junkie and tells him to “get better at life” before another cop comes to him with drawings of Parademons. His conversation with the League also ran longer. First, he asks Wonder Woman “if she’s the same woman he keeps seeing reports of in London”. Then, he asks Cyborg “how does he eat? Does he even need to?”.[/li][li]DELETED: After the attack on Atlantis, Aquaman consults with Mera and Vulko over what he should do next. Mera wants him to stay as King because she “doesn’t trust Orm”. Vulko wants him to do what his heart says. Aquaman confesses that he feels a responsinility to help the people on Earth.[/li][li]DELETED: The League visits the Batcave. Alfred has humorous reactions to the League. Bruce Wayne talks about a “nightmare” he had. He believes that Steppenwolf will try and resurrect the power of Superman and “that they must do it first unless they want to fight an Evil Kryptonian too.”[/li][li]CHANGED: Superman’s resurrection was ONLY possible because Cyborg detects foreign genetic material in his DNA a.k.a the Codex. This is the final confirmation needed that Superman can be brought back to life after all. Then, the revival happens pretty much the same.[/li][li]DELETED: Deathstroke breaks Lex out of prison. They part ways because the cops are hot on their trail – deciding to meet up later at “the location they discussed”.[/li][li]DELETED: Kent Farm. Superman brings Lois here. however, he is still very confused and not knowing what’s happening. Bystanders are looking at him and clicking his photos. This confuses him further and he actually tries to attack the civilians with his laser-eyes before Lois manages to calm him down. Superman tells her that “the voices won’t shut up”. Later, Martha shows up here and Clark and Lois are already inside the house. Clark is calmer now but still very confused – his powers are going haywire and his senses are heightened. Martha gives the “Picture the world as an Island. Follow my voice and come back to me” speech from MoS. It seems to calm him down. Later, Clark is wearing his shirt when he sees Pa Kent (Yes, Costner was here too) out in the fields. He goes out to see him. Pa Kent talks about “embracing who you really are”. He tells Clark that “you have to make peace with who you are. You have the power to change the world and you can do that as anyone, good character or bad.” Clark finally embraces Superman as a part of him when Lois walks out. Clark confirms their engagement, Lois breaks down because she wasn’t strong enough. Then, Martha comes out too as Clark decides to help the League and flies off. That’s how it happened in my version. I may have paraphrased some dialogue but that was basically it.[/li][li]DELETED: Clark heads up to meet Alfred and get his suit.[/li][li]DELETED: Steppenwolf’s second conversation with Heggra. Now that he has all three Mother Boxes – her return to this world can begin.[/li][li]CHANGED: Bruce’s conversation with Dianaafter Superman returns. Diana comes in to pop Bruce’s shoulder and tend to his injuries. Bruce reveals that he is willing to die to save the world. In fact, he says “he deserves to die because of what he’s done. He’s killed people and nothing, not even his hate for Superman can justify killing like that”. Diana tells him that “he’s changed now” but Bruce remains adamant that he can only atone himself by sacrificing his life.[/li][li]CHANGED: Bruce’s Batmobile is headed to certain death during the finale when Wonder Woman and Aquaman interfere and save his life. They tell him that dying in battle won’t do anything and he must live to keep the fight going.[/li][li]ALTERNATE ENDING WE WERE SHOWN: Cyborg tries to separate the Mother Boxes while Heggra keeps trying to talk him away. Furious, Steppenwolf grabs him and rips him apart – essentially killing him.[/li][li]CHANGED: Superman joins the fight and teams up with the League to defeat Steppenwolf. However, at one point, Steppy tries to tempt Superman into joining his army and we see Darksied (for the first time) in Superman’s vision and we see flashes of the Knightmare footage. However, Superman SNAPS back from it and delivers the final blow to Steppy, defeating him.[/li][li]DELETED: Steppenwolf is killed by Darkseid on Apokolips. Darkseid intends to come to Earth to “meet the Kryptonian”.[/li][li]DELETED: Aquaman meets Mera off the village coast and agrees to come back. Barry steps into the library, Iris smiles at him cutely.[/li][li]DELETED: Bruce and Barry place Victor’s “body” in the Batcave. Bruce comments that “his organic tissue is dead but it may be possible to reignite his mechanical parts”. Barry promises to help however he can.[/li][li]DELETED: Lois introduces Perry White to “Clark Kent a.k.a Superman“.[/li][li]The original after credit scene that was shot in principal photography was Bruce being woken in the night in his lake house by a green light and being visited by Tomar Re and Kilowog. It was cut fairly early on during post.[/li][/ol]
and ati am supossed to be hyped for Aquaman they fucking cut GL out!!
So they decided to cut Zack off
Was it just me or was the CGI of this movie trash? Cyborg looked like shit…and the scenes when the league went to fight Steppenwolf looked like something from Green Lantern and the Spy Kids movies
Thats joss whedon for yah!!..they cgi’d his mustache out if it was snyder am sure he could have gone for the mullet and black suit look
you are the same person who kept hyping this movie while I told you it will be trash ukajiona mwerevu with GIFs and Incoherent replies. hadi saa hizi ukahamia Marvel pretending to support Black Panther for the culture. Finally you guys see what I have been telling you since BVS days
BVS superman extended cut ain bad and that was heavily edited still but this Movie is seriously hurting from the edits …like kuna mtu DC who is just hell bent on making marvel like movies …I don’t know why?thats what this is all about…why they keeping fucking shit up themselves yet everyone respected their mature approach to supes…its like sabotage…fuck even harry porter universe is more serious than the Dc movies imagine that is the reality now…
That’s good business sense. nani ataketi through 3 hours of non sense? That extra hour or so was used to fill more theatre seats.
Kill Bill was to be released as one 5 hour plus film including the animation film within the film but the producer intervened and cut it into two shorter films.
Also they screen this stuff to a select audience before releasing it you know. It’s called a test screening. That audience then makes these kind of recommendations e.g. “the movie is just too long, please reduce it!”
One day they might release the director’s cut.
I watched a director’s cut of Troy and it was like watching a new and very long film. Much much bloodier though. And it was much slower paced than the theatrical release. If director’s were allowed to edit their movies some films would be seven hours long therefore a producer sometimes has to flex some muscle and chop it down.
and btw LOTRS were 3hrs …
That’s different. They are watchable. They are adventure epics. Sasa hizi zako… explosions for 3 hours, zero story.
Most of scorsere films are also almost 3 hours long but they are worth it. Producer akipima hivi he says they are worth the theatre time. They’ll bring back the investment made. How do you reduce the wolf of wall street for instance? It’s complete.
and watchmen!! do you just google shit and post…
I thought ingekuwa injustice saw signs of it kwa BVS… justice league looks too much like the avengers that’s why it sucked, oh and the crap CGI
kwani hii ushenzi umeweka huko juu umetoa wapi wewe mwenyewe? Director’s commentary huwa na information mingi sana if you like movies.
I think it was going for a dark tone…cuz even has a feleted script of supes almost killing civilians! and cyborg dies in the end in zack snyder’s version…shit we will never get to see that dark and gritty DCEU now we have this all colorful happy wit talking super hero universe its disjointed from the start which was Man of steel…kwanza kwa hii superman is all quipy and in one he was that guy who felt the crown was heavy on his head…but here am the super hero with all the gifts 180 switch!!
I don argue with google results i have an understanding from the data results …you quip its long i tell you movies been long …you talk of another director yet this same director has a 3+ movie in the same genre and a quite a an acclaimed adaptation…so your whole argument haimake sense from the get go!!
Hata hio watchmen ilikatwa. Maybe zack snyder your fav director doesn’t have the clout to defend his projects such that they are released as he wanted them.
he is the one who made the cuts and changed some aspects…thats why he is good…
Watchmen was cut by a whooping 24 minutes. That is a serious insult to any director. If he had balls he should’ve removed his name from the final edit like some director’s do. Inaonekana huyu jamaa amezoea kufanyiwa madharau.
