Re: Justice League (Snyder Steps Down Following Family Tragedy; Joss Whedon Replacing) (November 17)

Remember that behind-the-scenes Justice League set photo featuring Zack Snyder and Jason Momoa that was released all the way back in February? There were a few instantly recognizable costumes on display such as The Flash, Batman and Aquaman but fans were going crazy trying to figure out who owned the black, nondescript costume glimpsed just above Zack Snyder's right shoulder.  Did it belong to Nightwing?  Black Manta? Green Lantern? Well, it appears that armor first seen 6 months ago was our first glimpse of Deathstroke.   It's unlikely that Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder would be looking ahead to the solo Batman film at such an early stage with so much riding on Justice League.  They wouldn't be working out the aesthetics of Deathstroke so early unless the lethal mercenary was also appearing in Justice League.  

Add that to the fact that ScreenRant, who toured the Justice League set back in June, has confirmed that the teaser footage was shot aboard The Flying Fox (Justice League's aerial base of operations as detailed in the June set visit reports) - you can just make out the new Batmobile over Deathstroke's shoulder.  

What's Deathstroke's role in Justice League and how does that lead into Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie (should that rumor prove true)?  With Batman operating in Gotham for 20 years, has The Caped Crusader and Deathstroke crossed paths before?  We still have a ton of unanswered questions and speculation is running rampant but this is exactly what Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder intended by releasing the teaser yesterday.  While we await more details, check out a rendering of what Joe Manganiello (the rumored actor underneath the mask) would look like as Deathstroke the Terminaor via Bosslogic.

Manganiello was rumored way back last year but I thought he'd moved on after DS was allegedly cut from Skwad. Turns out they may have only delayed his debut for the JL film, if true he's a big sumbitch and could make a good Deathstroke.

Yeah, I could see it. Ben is a big dude himself so it'd be a good match.

Pretty sure Batfleck would still look small next to Manganiello.

Geoff Johns has confirmed that Manganiello is the man underneath Deathstroke's mask.

I've got no hate for Mr Vergara. His acting is better than the roles he gets. I thought he was great in Sabotage (which everyone seems to loathe), so I'm OK with it ... and he's got more range than Manu Bennett on Arrow.

After Magic Mike, that shit was all over the news. If you go to Yahoo a lot then you can't miss it. Their wedding was very talked about too. I don't go looking for this, it just pops up. Rolling Eyes Good for them though.

When I see that suit, I like how I imagine it would look with AC's trident through the lightning bolt.

Maybe it's extreme over saturation or the never ending disappointments but my love for comic adaptations is quickly waning.

I spent years reading these stories growing up and fan casting and now that they're finally coming to fruition and it's all wrong.

It was ok but I expected more from a Justice League trailer. All of the Wonder Woman trailers were EPIC but this just doesn't compare. Cyborg's CGI suit doesn't look finished. Still not feeling Ezra as Flash, it just isn't the Barry we know. Batman's the only one that looks amazing. Aquaman looks great but that's only because of Jason and Aquaman has never been this cool to begin with.

I wonder who'll get more slow-mo hair flips - Wonder Woman or Aqua-Man?

Still yet to see anything with Wonder Woman where she doesn't do a superhero landing Very Happy

Snyder Steps Down as Director Following Family Tragedy; Joss Whedon to finish the film
Superheroes have always been about doing the right thing in the hardest of circumstances. Now Zack Snyder, one of the biggest filmmakers in the genre and the director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Justice League, finds himself in just such a situation.

Snyder tells The Hollywood Reporter he is stepping away from Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star DC Comics superhero mega-movie that is in post-production, in order to deal with the sudden death of his daughter. Snyder's wife, Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on Justice League, also is taking a break to focus on the healing of their family.

Stepping in to shepherd the movie through post and the shooting of some additional scenes will be Joss Whedon, the Avengers filmmaker and creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With Whedon's help, the movie is still on track for its Nov. 17 release date.

Snyder’s daughter, Autumn Snyder, died by suicide in March at age 20. Her death has been kept private, with only a small inner circle aware of what happened, even as the movie was put on a two-week break for the Snyders to deal with the immediate effects of the tragedy. Zack Snyder says he initially was eager to return to the film, which stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it,” says an emotional Snyder in an interview Monday in his office on the Warner Bros. lot with Deborah sitting by his side. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all consuming. And in the last two months I’ve come to the realization …I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”
The studio is fully behind the move. “What they are going through is unimaginable, and my heart — our hearts — go out to them, says Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich.

One of the first things the studio floated was the possibility of pushing back the release date of the movie, but the Snyders decided against that suggestion. Warners also extended Snyder's first-look deal to give him time to work on other planned projects when he returns to work. 

Snyder, after screening a rough cut of Justice League for fellow filmmakers and friends, wanted to add additional scenes, so he brought Whedon on board to write them. But as he prepared to shoot the scenes in England, Snyder realized it was not the time to leave home. “The directing is minimal and it has to adhere to the style and tone and the template that Zack set,” says Emmerich. “We’re not introducing any new characters. It’s the same characters in some new scenes. He’s handing a baton to Joss but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, we’ll still end up with a great movie.”

This isn’t the first time that Warners has had to deal with the unthinkable affecting a high-profile DC movie. In 2008, Heath Ledger passed away after shooting had wrapped for The Dark Knight but prior to the movie being finished and released. The tragedy put the studio and filmmaker Christopher Nolan in a very delicate position of balancing mourning with the demands of releasing a tentpole.

The Internet and comic book movie fans being what they are, Snyder already is anticipating what what some DC loyalists may think.

“Here’s the thing, I never planned to make this public,” he says. “I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They’ll do what they do. The truth it…I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”

The death of Autumn, Zack's daughter from his first marriage (in addition to Autumn, he and Deborah have been raising seven kids and step-kids) has brought a new perspective and a new focus for him. “I want the movie to be amazing and I’m a fan, but that all pales pretty quickly in comparison," he says. “I know the fans are going to be worried about the movie but there are seven other kids that need me,” he says. “ In the end, it’s just a movie. It’s a great movie. But it’s just a movie.

Autumn, who was attending Sarah Lawrence College, loved “to write, to write, to write,” says Deborah. Their daughter had written a sci-fi fantasy novel in the first person. It featured a character who was an outsider and who had trouble fitting in.

Deborah is holding on to the thought that she was the first person her daughter gave the book to read, even now as the story takes on a new meaning under the circumstances. “You’re heading her voice,” Deborah says, fighting back tears.  

The Snyders would like to someday see that manuscript published, with the proceeds going to a charity. “In the end, she didn’t make it, but her character does and I think there would be something cathartic for people,” says Zack.

The thought of his daughter’s writing prompts Zack to recall another memory. Autumn had a quote that she included in everything she wrote. (“Every. Single. Thing,” chuckles Zack). It’s from author Chris Palahniuk: “We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”

“Maybe this helps,” Zack says.

As much as I dislike Zack Snyder's work, this is definitely not a reason I wanted for him go step down from the Justice League film.

I hope the film gets re-edited and won't suck as bad as the piece of shit that is Batman v Superman. And hopefully he will stay away from all other DC films, too.
