Watching this reminded me how wooden the characters in this movie are.

The only one who added a bit of personality into the film was Flash.


Was able to shorten the movie by fast forwarding through any Lois Lane scenes.

The good.

It's got a darker, grittier tone than most Marvel movies ie it's aimed at adults.
It looks fantastic whether it's the special effects, close ups or landscape shots.
There's a manageable number of main characters and there's a good balance of time spent with each of them.
Great soundtrack. I especially liked the tune when Wonder Woman is about to go into battle.
A few scenes could have been skipped like Lois Lane getting a visit from Martian Manhunter and most of the epilogue, but overall I didn't mind the long runtime. Having said that we watched it in 2 x 2 hour sittings with a few hours break in between.

The bad.

Cliched. Powerful evil alien is working for an even more powerful evil alien. MacGuffin plot to find and assemble the magic stones/boxes/elements to destroy/save the world. We need you to join the gang - no way, no way, ok then.
I don't think the 4:3 added anything to film.
Bringing characters back from the dead lessens the emotional impact when any character dies. Why be sad when they will probably be back next movie?
Flash was annoying.
They never came back to the Lois Lane possible pregnancy.

So CEO of warner media said thats it there will be no continuation of this story

Also apparently Snyder wanted Lois to be pregnant with Bruce's chiild. Well thankfully he came to his senses on that one. Though that could have been revealed in the sequel if he.got one
Podcast I listened to said that;

Lois had Superman's kid, but he didn't have the superhuman abilities that Superman did, so he became the new Batman

Watched this over the weekend

Thought it was far far superior to the original, the story telling was far better, the original felt far too rushed and convenient

Watched it last night.

Better than the OG cut at least.
Still so many " Why is he/she doing that ? " moments though.



Final battle was a lot more enjoyable this time around, i couldn't wait for the original to end.
Special shoutout to the London bank security guard who watched 10 blokes jump out of 2 vans armed to the teeth but waited a good 10 seconds to lift his rifle :thumbsu:

yes that’s what Snyder has said as well, their son (named Bruce Kent) then takes over the mantle of Batman 20 years later. Interesting take, not a huge fan of that personally. But much much better than the idea of Bruce and Lois getting together.

Ray Fisher (Cyborg) about his problems with Whedon. I really couldn't see anything he describes in this article as racist, he just sounds like he was upset because Whedon changed the part and wouldn't listen to his notes. Sounds like an actor who thinks the world revolves around him. I say this basing it off this article, if any new information comes out it may make this opinion null and void.

I’m not fully across the details however you only have to listen to comments made by the likes of Momoa, Gadot and of course the cast of Buffy recently to get some context.

Whedon seems to be a common denominator. Gadot mentioned a few months back she refused to film that scene where Flash lands on her chest awkwardly, on the grounds it sexualises the character. Whedon did it in Age Of Ultron too with Banner on Black Widow. But he went ahead and filmed it anyway with a body double, that’s why she’s not facing the camera in the theatrical release.

I think the best you can say about this film is it's much more coherent than the cinematic release. It's still not a very good film; far too po-faced, long-winded, just silly at times. A few things I liked, such as Flash's role in the finale, but just not that good. There wasn't a good film buried in there that could be saved by Whedon or anyone else.
