    Hopefully they can really bring to life Liefeld's unique interpretation of the human physique.

    Good point about the horror directors. Forgot about the king of them all (at least on the horror front); Sam Raimi, Evil Dead to Spider-Man.

    He can't draw, period, but he did give the world Cable and Deadpool, so that's something.

    Who doesn't love drawings of men with biceps bigger than their head and women with waists as wide as their wrists?

    It is genuinely an insult to anyone with even the smallest amount of ability that he's ever been paid for "art", never mind that he's incredibly successful and has a following.

    Well you know it was the early 90s. People still thought mullets were acceptable.

    I was smack, bang in the middle of the demo that made him successful.

    I lapped up the X-Force stuff he did and bought the first few issues of everything he put out at image and then the penny dropped *hard*.

    He pooped out The Shitty Avengers, The Shitty X-Force, a Shitty Superman and a Shitty Lobo and it became apparent that not only was he incapable of writing, he was actually a terrible artist.

    But 12 old me thought he was awesome.

    Always good for a laugh though. Just rereading some articles about the worst examples of Liefeld's 'art'... these are some long articles.

    God, I cannot stand McFarlane's artwork. Just weird looking.

    Snyder is using Vero to post pics from the many deleted JL scenes now. Nothing special so far but it showed more screen time between Martha and Louis.

    Also talk that they want Cruise for the Green Lantern films.... I mean it could work

    Yeah, a shit film is a shit film. I don't think a couple of deleted scenes will stop it being shit.

    Also Tom Cruise? They really have no idea what they're doing.

    @JamboWayOh to be fair Kevin Feige supposedly held talks with Cruise over playing Iron Man before RDJ signed on. That sounds like it could have been equally disastrous and perhaps even killed the MCU before it really got going.

    @GarlVinland

    I had heard about that a while ago, thank fuck it never happened.

    I can see Cruise as Iron Man tbh. Charming and a bit loathsome are two of his key characteristics.

    Don't forget at the time RDJ was also a bit of a gamble. It was the Iron Man role that helped reinvent him and make him relevant again.

    Yeah I reckon they probably decided to cut all the good bits out too.

    Ok, I don't think an hour of deleted scenes will make a shit film magically great. Unless it manages to make the acting, dialogue, plot and Superman's lip not a travesty. Somehow I sincerely doubt it.

    Don't know what they were but that's around how much got cut. Did read the opening battle was originally around 15 minutes long

    The issue there is that many films get cut for pacing and whatnot, in all likelihood the stuff was cut for that reason, I mean fuck me, a 15 minute Snyder fight?!

    Yeah, the one thing JL did not need was more boring CGI fighting.

    I heard that the Gearskin cut is a hard 10/10 and would've won Oscars.

    Apparently joss was bought in to simplify the story.

    Cyborg had a lot of scenes cut after the success of WW as they wanted to push her when originally here was the "heart" of the movie.

    Post credit scene with 2 green lanterns meeting Bruce didn't get filmed

    Flash saving Iris from a car crash

    2 Atlantis scenes

    Steppenwolf being more of a threat

    Doomsday killing Steppenwolf among other things are known to have been cut.

    Would it have made it much better? We will never know cause it seems WB want to move as far away from Snyder as possible now.

    It wouldn't have made it better. It's like looking at a pile of shit and saying 'would more shit make it better?' It wouldn't. It's still shit.

    True we may never know, but what we do know is that this film was rushed into existence after execs saw the success of the MCU, but rather than put in the work to make a coherent universe and develop their characters they thought fuck it lets just go straight to the climax. It was always going to end badly and BvS was a prewarning. IF they're serious about this then they need a proper plan with someone steering it who knows what the fuck they are doing. No reacting to the internet, actually planning for the future ala Marvel and their phases. If not then just go back to releasing unconnected films sporadically and be done with this bullshit.
