Beloved Readers: Don’t see the problem here, Cataline, we already know you don’t like Justice League and had no intention of loving the Snyder Cut.
There shouldn’t have been a problem. A thirty million dollar Special Edition for a recent film that didn’t do all that well, just to cater some fangirls is to my mind a questionable business decision. And one that appears to have been made by corporate overlords who don’t really understand the entertainment industry. But I don’t own any stock in AT&T so I didn’t have a dog in this fight.
And then Collider lost its shit over Fan Privilege. And Fan Entitlement and just how dangerous a precedent actually giving them what they want is. And then the dog-pile started. The Verge. Kotaku, Polygon were all doing little hit pieces. Vanity Fair’s (of all things) headline was “Is Releasing the Snyder Cut of Justice League a Victory for Toxic Fandoms.”
There is no getting around it, the Snyder Cut is pissing off all the people that regularly piss me off. When something is “deeply troubling” the SJW turd-weasels that write for the access media, I have to wonder if there isn’t some virtue to the Snyder Cut that I’ve missed?
And the answer to that question is, no. It’s not going to be a major improvement over Whedon’s “Avengers Light” take on it. It’s just going to be more Batman Vs Superman and Superman probably won’t be anywhere near as likable.
What is really frightening the access media is just what they said it was, they hate the idea of the fans getting their way. Because when they do get their way the studios are that much closer to flushing their beloved, godawful SJWized garbage versions of franchises. They really think they have the right to dictate what fan tastes should be and when those preferences are roundly rejected they are suddenly in the position of being reminded that they aren’t important at all. They are just paid (usually by Disney) to be a herd of trained seals, clapping on command.
It reminds them how unimportant they really are.
I suppose I can make the effort and enjoy the Snyder… No, I’m sorry, I just can’t. I’m still not interested in it.
