Rumor has it that WB completely AXED Snyder, and that he didn't leave because of his daughter's tragic death. If this is true, then WB are really dickheads :mazen:

I never believed Zack would work willingly with Joss Whedon, let alone let him take over JL

Oh, and apparently, the DVD release will be released on 27th of March according to Amazon India. There better be a good reason why it won't be released in February :biblio:

JL wasn’t terrible for me, but wasn’t great either. It’s basically an average popcorn flick. The same way I feel about Age of Ultron. All I know is both Joss and Zack need to be gone. Take Kevin with you was well.

Isn't it convenient that he was the director of The Avengers and Age of Ultron

He was already in WB before joining JL so why is it convenient?

 

If anything he's an obvious choice. 

 

These directors and actors and movie people swap studios all the time I don't see why they'd be butthurt over which one works with which franchise. 

 

Hemsworth for example worked with WB before and another one coming soon. 

 

CBM fans read into these rumors way too much.

“Justice League” had a lot of enemies: a looming corporate merger, a family tragedy, an internal clash between light and dark. But its greatest enemy was time.

Few people are happy with the finished project, which one insider called “a Frankenstein” made of the assembled parts favored by rotating executives and directors. But several people who spoke to TheWrap said the decision to keep the film’s Nov. 17 release date was a mistake — one as as plain as Superman’s face.

Quote

 

After the disappointment of “Batman v Superman,” the individual with deep knowledge of Warner Bros. said studio executives repeatedly went to Silverman to suggest removing Snyder from “Justice League.” The individual said DC President Jon Berg was sent to the set for the better part of a year to oversee the production out of budget concerns.

The insider said Silverman was “quite harsh on Zack” when “Batman v Superman” underwhelmed audiences. But he didn’t fire him: Removing a director is a major distraction on any film, and it would be a sign of serious trouble on a tentpole designed to support a larger universe.

 

After the family tragedy:

 

Quote

 

At first, an insider said, the director’s plan was that “work was gonna be kind of a refuge.”

But then it wasn’t. Snyder was under added pressure because Warner Bros. was embracing “the lighter, different, more confectionary ideas of Joss,” the insider said. “It stopped being a good situation on any level.”

 

Why the film wasn't delayed:
 

Quote

One executive told TheWrap Tsujihara and Emmerich “wanted to preserve their bonuses they would be paid before the merger,” and were worried that “if they pushed the movie, then their bonuses would have been pushed to the following year and they might not still be at the studio.”

 

This article is DAMNING. WB are run by incompetent people. 

Pray for Johns and Berg to do the best they can y'all.

New Report Details The Warner Bros. Drama Behind 'Justice League'

 

This month, Justice League made its way into theaters, and fans of the DC Extended Universe were dismayed to see the film get mixed reviews. The long-awaited movie was meant to be an undeniable success for Warner Bros. but die-hards fans have done little else but question what went down behind-the-scenes with the project. Now, a new report from The Wrap is breaking down what sources have said about Justice League and its "Frankenstein" debut.

Not long ago, Umberto Gonzalez and Tim Molloy posted an in-depth exposé about Justice League. The film, which had the lowest opening of DC Entertainment’s most recent movies, can apparently pinpoint its lackluster reception to a few key factors.

 

According to The Wrap, members of Warner Bros. did approach the studio’s president Greg Silverman about removing director Zack Snyder from Justice League. The call came after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was met with critical backlash and a fierce box office drop after its promising opening. The site’s source says DC President Jon Berg was ultimately sent to oversee Justice League for almost a year after budget concerns made higher-ups antsy.

The report goes on to say Silverman was “quite harsh” to Snyder about Batman v Superman’s flop, but he was given another go at Justice League.

 

“They were already in deep prep on ‘Justice League’ and it would have cost a fortune. There’s stickiness to a director because there’s so much cost to unstick him,” the insider explained. “Warners is a studio that almost to a fault always wants to project strength.”

As work continued on Justice League, Warner Bros. is said to have stood by its original premiere date once reports went live about the company merging with AT&T. To move the release of such a film would have been viewed as a weakness, and Justice League had a lot to prove to audiences and business insiders. Joss Whedon was then brought in to give the movie more levity under Snyder’s blessing, but things took a turn when tragedy struck the director. Snyder’s daughter died following a suicide attempt, and he ultimately chose to leave the project to focus on his loved ones as in-studio pressure continued to mount on Justice League.

 

"It stopped being a good situation on any level,” The Wrap's source described.

With Justice League now in the hands of Whedon, post-production and re-shoots on the film were quickly scheduled to get things in order. The Wrap’s source went so far as to say Warner Bros. executives Toby Emmerich and Kevin Tsujihara didn’t wish to push the movie’s release date as it might have risked their annual bonuses. The time-crunch ultimately forced the film together loosely, and its re-shoots even forced Superman's Henry Cavill to have his mustache digitally removed in post.

So far, it seems Warner Bros. has declined to comment on The Wrap’s piece nor were statements given by any executives.

 

The sting of Justice League is still one fans feel keenly, and they continue hurting over its messy construction for years to come. Films like Wonder Woman have shown audiences what it looks like when Warner Bros. does its DC movies justice, and the DCEU will strive to follow after director Patty Jenkin’s example. Matt Reeves is currently signed on to oversee The Batman while James Wan finished Aquaman this year. Jenkins herself will return for Wonder Woman’s sequel, and Shazamentered pre-production with David F. Sandberg on its side. Fans are putting their faith in these directors to steer the DCEU in the right direction and not stumble over the pitfalls which derailed Justice League.

Everyone mentioning DC and JL in every Avenger thread... so petty :zzz:

"Everyone" :eek: The same way Marvel came up on multiple occasions from at least 2 regular posters in this thread when JL was getting its lashings? Or in the JL box office threads? I guess you must have conveniently missed those :rip: At least try to be consistent :zzz:

WB does great when they don't meddle with projects. They also have a ****ty eye for Big blockbusters, at least in the last few years.

 

Look at Blade Runner 2049. It had an underwhelming Box Office run but it's a masterpiece. If you're gonna flop, it's best to flop with a great film. Or Edge Of Tomorrow, also had a dissapointing Box Office run but it's a great action movie.

 

So what they need to do is trust directors and that's it. Studio notes almost never translate well to film. Look at Age Of Ultron, it's basically filled with studio notes and it's so blatantly obvious.

 

I hope the DCEU is not dead, but every film coming up needs to be great and they need to keep the next few films with budgets under $150 million to minimize risks.

This is the problem with big tentpole movies in general. Especially since a lot of these executives have no film or writing background. It’s so sad honestly
