    A true visionary creates trilogies which are made up not of 3 parts but 5!!!!

    Jokes aside. I’m watching this again right now. All 4 hours of it.

    I just watched the Snyder's Cut and I have one word to describe Whedon's movie: sabotage.

    I blame him and executives forcing 2 hour runtime. Yet they let Aquaman be 2:23, an entire 1 hour too much for that movie.

    Did he?

    The Bank Scene is not 4:3, but 16:9 or so. https://blu-ray-rezensionen.net/justice-league-snyder-cut-sky-itunes/ (scroll down).

    I don't really buy it, that he always intended to use 4:3/IMAX for the whole movie and everywhere. But the Snyder Cut is definitvely not just a stupid open matte movie.

    James Cameron loves (loved?) Super 35, https://theasc.com/magazine/dec97/titanic/pgs35/pg1.htm And this format gave him the opportunity to extract the best (widescreen) image. And c'mon: Thank Super 35 we can see Kristanna Loken's boobs in Temrinator 3 (16:9 and 4:3 version, but not in the widesreen version).


    So, Superman‘s Black Suit is CGI.

    JL Gray Cut coming: Zack Snyder's Justice League auf Twitter: "Zack Snyder's Justice League: Justice is Gray coming soon to @HBOMax. #SnyderCut https://t.co/tT4GGngktI" / Twitter

    And it will have a different Joker scene (rumour).

    I actually really liked the 4:3 ratio. If anything, I like that infinitely better than the super wide screen movies that add huge borders at the top and bottom of my screen. I feel I get more screen this way, if that makes sense?

    I guess it depends on the aspect ratio of your monitor (4:3 would probably suck on mine)
    do you have a link to a clip from a super wide screen movie so i can see what it looks like on my monitor (all the clips I can find are 1080p or 4k)

    The same as a 21:9 game looks on your monitor, which would be black bars on the side. And he's talking about watching movies on a TV, not a computer monitor on your desk.

    LOL. This is the scene that caught my attention and encouraged me to stay engaged for 4 hours. All the blocking of automatic gun fire at real-time speeds really shows off the super human capabilities of these characters in a way that’s seem totally different than the tried and true methods (slow motion).

    I didn’t even make it through the Whedon cut as it lost my attention about an half hour into the film.

    2.35:1 is also sometimes used ...

    Of course now that they see they can ride the wave and make more money from him they are starting to realize people really want the best versions of those movies as intended by the director. Not their Marvel wannabe sweetened for teenagers versions.

    I just turned the volume down, turned subtitles on, and played some old timey piano music. Not perfect, but a close approximation.
