Just from the new trailer you can tell we're in for quite a different ride.  Sure the story beats are the same but Snyders cut is beefed up to the max it looks like.

Totally agree, I seriously can't wait to put 4 hours aside for this!

It may very well not be all that much better than the 1st version, but it will be worth the watch.  With that said, I think we are all going to enjoy this much more.

I liked it. I honestly dont remember the Joss cut all that well, so I will need to rewatch it.

Just finished it, 8/10 from me.  I didn't notice the 4hrs pass, so it didn't drag IMO.    There's a good chunk of setup for a sequel but who knows what WB will do?  Honestly if enough fans keep going on about wanting more then it could be another possibility.

So many people are questioning the aspect ratio and yes it is 4:3

Apparently it's something to do with IMAX formatting, which is a poor excuse IMO, especially as the trailers were widescreen.

 

Anyway, my take on it.  He definitely improved on the original, but a polished turd is still a turd, sorry.  It flowed reasonably well, but the end scenes just don't really make any sense.  They really should have just eliminated the ruined Earth dream sequences completely (they made even LESS sense than the original cut), and the final bit with the additional character who I shall not mention because spoilers was just... very badly shoehorned in and made bugger all sense to the narrative...

 

Best part of the whole movie is a LOT more backstory for Cyborg.  That was neat.

 

All in all, the Snyder Cut moved my rating of Justice League from 5/10 for the original cut, to 7 out of 10.

 

Also, to add... Being in the UK the only way to watch this legally was on Sky Cinema, so I subbed up to NowTV (thankfully on a 7 day trial), and at 7am this morning, I was greeted with "Sorry, but the scheduled movie has been replaced with (something else that's a pile of hot stinky poo)"  and they showed some crappy Christmas romcom instead...  Needless to say I was apoplectic with rage!  It took about 90 minutes for NowTV to have a streamable version available and THAT was rather pixelated from compression artefacts in places...

 

Not exactly the best streaming experience I've had... Should have given it to Netflix.

The ratio for 4:3 and imax digital are almost the same. Any imax screen I've been to is more square than it is wide. 

 

And no, all the trailers for this cut were 4:3.

The ruined earth scene makes sense to me. It's a spoiler of a possible future that could have been the basis of a future JL movie. 

 

Maybe I have more context as a DC fan who's read the comics. Though I think the movie gives you enough info to put 2 and 2 together.

It wasn’t MCU quality, it felt a little unpolished in some spots, but definitely an improvement over the original.

Making it 4:3 was a terrible choice. What does imax have to do with anything... this cut isn't showing in imax theaters, its only streaming on tvs.  I don't get it.

 

Anyways, I'm only half way though.. will watch the rest tonight.

It was filmed with imax ratio in mind, it would've been in imax.   And how is it a bad choice when you're actually seeing more of the frame compared to if it was cropped to 16:9?   Snyder filmed it with imax in mind, he wanted his version to be viewed that specific way.

I guess that kinda makes sense.

I grew up in a time when the only way to see ANYTHING on tv was in 4:3 (known as the "Academy Ratio" i.e., the industry standard, up until 1953-54), so that was the ONLY way to see most of the movies and shows we wanted to watch. Also, in monochrome/black and white, it's what most of us had until around 1970, when a lot of folks broke down and bought color TV sets (most of which had crappy color saturation and stability at the time, and you needed to have a powerful local broadcast signal (no cable tv yet) or all you would see on your tube was multicolored snow/fuzz). My dad didn't break down and get a decent color tv until about 1973, but by then I was about to drive off to Cali for film school.

 

So in short, I *love* 4:3 and wish it was the standard ratio to this day. 🤓 

 

PS: Around 90 % of my current DVD and Bluray collection is of older films and TV shows in their original 4:3. Like the original Twilight Zone, etc. 👍

I enjoyed it A LOT. Didn't like the original Justice's League. The Snyder cut is very well done. Hey, if it's 4 hours long and you don't notice you've been sitting in the same couch, I'd consider it a good movie

      Cooperative Bat-adventure Gotham Knights delayed to 2022
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Last year, Warner Bros. announced Gotham Knights as a brand new Bat Family-based project coming out of the Arkham Origins developer Warner Bros. Games Montréal. While the studio had gone silent regarding the game after its announcement, today it delivered some bad news for fans, revealing that Gotham Knights is now slated for 2022 instead of 2021 as originally planned.

      "We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players," said the developer in an announcement on its Twitter page, adding that more Gotham Knights information will be landing in the coming months. Check out the original announcement trailer below.

      The gameplay should be familiar to Arkham series fans, though this time, the entire game can be played cooperatively with up to four players that will assume the roles of Nightwing, Robin, Red Hood, and Batgirl. While the storyline takes place after Batman's apparent death, this is not set in the Arkham franchise universe made by Rocksteady Studios.

      Speaking of Rocksteady, the original Batman studio is also working on a cooperative game of its own under Warner Bros., that being Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is actually set in the original Arkham universe. This game is already aiming for a 2022 launch, so it appears DC fans will get two action co-op games during the year at this rate.

      Gotham Knights has the Bat Family going up against the Court of Owls
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      During the DC FanDome stream today, Warner Bros. Games Montréal - the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins - announced its next game set in the DC universe: Gotham Knights. As can be seen in the cinematic announcement trailer above, Batman/Bruce Wayne is presumed dead, and members of the Bat Family are taking up the role of being Gotham's protectors.

      The popular Court of Owls comic book story arc will be a large part of the game it seems, and the group is probably connected to Batman's passing. Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Batgirl are all playable characters this time, and online cooperative play is available too, letting players team up with different heroes to "protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals."

      The developer also shared a pre-alpha gameplay video of Gotham Knights for fans to witness during the stream, which can be seen above. The playthrough has Batgirl being joined by another player who's taking the role of Robin, as they team up against Mr. Freeze, giving a glimpse at the open world of Gotham and a more focused mission similar to the ones seen in the Arkham series.

      Gotham Knights is coming in 2021, and while platforms were not announced today, it's likely that the title will be hitting the next-generation consoles and PC. There is another DC universe game announcement incoming from the DC FanDome stream later today, with Rocksteady prepping to showcase Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League at 17:10 PDT / 20:10 EDT.

      'Batman: Arkham' developer Rocksteady hints at next-gen AAA title in recent job listings
      by Usama Jawad

      Rocksteady Studios pretty much wrapped up the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series with Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015. This also marked the studio's last major release, and we have not heard from the developer since, except for a spinoff Batman: Arkham VR release in 2016.

      It is currently unknown what projects Rocksteady is working on currently, but we may just gotten a hint at it with some job listings posted on the developer's site.

      Image via Den of GeekAs spotted by ResetEra forum member est1992, Rocksteady has posted over 20 job listings on its website, with expertise required in numerous departments, including animation, art, character, code and AI, design, dialog, and marketing.

      Eurogamer notes that all of these listings reference a "AAA title on the next generation platforms". Many of them reference professional experience in creative writing in TV, comics, and novels, while others also demand a "broad knowledge of comics, novels, games, cinema, and popular culture relating to video games." Interestingly, the Lead Animator post demands a person "who is ready for the challenge of leading a team of world class Gameplay Animators towards our next 90+ Metacritic title."

      Most of these job listings were announced at the start of the year but have now been made available for public viewing. Many of them are contractual positions which require a the applicant to be available for a period of two years to work on the project.

      Needless to say, all of these hints point at an upcoming title, though its identity is anyone's guess. At the start of this year, Rocksteady posted images of its motion-capture support team after a test shoot which sparked rumors have previously surfaced regarding an upcoming Justice League or Superman game. We'll likely learn more about this secret project soon, if these job listings are indications of an upcoming title.
