I understand your skepticism, or outright disbelief. And I cannot say that such attitudes are unjustified. They are justified: DC movies have an uneven track record, at best. Any sensible person would vote the odds. So I do not scorn contrary opinions.
Oops: “In a moment sure to please some fans while devastating those who weren’t quick enough to take advantage of it, HBO Max hit a bit of a speed bump Monday night when the highly-anticipated Zack Snyder’s Justice League debuted on the streaming service just over a week ahead of its scheduled debut.” Not for long, and it’s gone now, but I imagine that there was truly majestic screaming involved.
PS: Not deliberately, I think: they’ve been ruthless about scrubbing all evidence of the leak. Takedown notices and copyright violations a go-go.
Color me shocked. I gotta be honest, because it’s safe for me to say this, now: …why are we getting the Snyder Cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE? I’m looking forward to it, you understand. I got HBO Max just so I could watch it, although it turns out that my wife is happily chewing through all the animated DC stuff right now and my kids are down with Ben 10, so it all worked out fine — but I can’t quite figure how and why the suits decided to let Snyder take the movie apart and put it back together again.
Ach, well, maybe this is the universe where that particular million-to-one shot paid off. Don’t expect it to happen again, either. Because I dunno how they’re getting their money back.
Not the countdown to the trailer, or the countdown to the countdown, or the countdown with four Ms and a silent Q. Just the JUSTICE LEAGUE trailer itself. In all of its ‘thumb in the eye of whoever you like’ glory.
