Not sure what to think of it, Miike is generally pretty hit-or-miss in my book. There's some shots in that trailer that I really liked, though.

I'd agree he's hit or miss, but I've liked some of his stuff and the Manga (what I read of it) was solid

Oh yeah, I do like a lot of his films. Dead or Alive 2: Birds is probably my favorite of the lot, and it's superb at that. He's a very creative and intelligent filmmaker when he's on point, just, he isn't always. :p

Snyder leaves Justice leage after family tragedy

 


In one of the most heart-wrenching stories you’re likely to ever hear, director Zack Snyder has decided to step back from directing Justice League to be with his family after the tragic suicide of his 20-year-old daughter, Autumn. Joss Whedon will finish the film.

 

Autumn Snyder took her life in March but the family decided to keep the news private. However, with reshoots about to get started ahead of the film’s November release, the director felt it was time to make the news public instead of delaying the film.

“I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter.

 

Snyder’s wife Deborah, who is a producer on the film, is similarly stepping back from her duties. The Snyders had recently screened a rough cut of the film and brought on Whedon to write some new scenes. But when they realized they couldn’t bring themselves to leave their family for London again, Whedon was asked to direct too.

 

“I never planned to make this public,” Snyder said. “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 is…I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”

The president of Warner Bros. Pictures, Toby Emmerich, also added that even with Whedon helping, this is still very much Zack Snyder’s movie.

 

“The directing is minimal and it has to adhere to the style and tone and the template that Zack set,” Emmerich said. “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.”

Justice League will be released November 17.

Sad. I don't think Snyder was the problem with Batman v. Superman myself, and am even pretty sure the best aspects of it were pretty wholly his doing. Sad that the above should happen to him and his family.

Pumped for this

am thinking we mighta' mentioned how we were raised by our grandparents, yes?  little odd in retrospect.  visited our father and mother one summer in chicago, shortly before moving in with them for high school education.  with birthday money we bought two comics and an action figure.  comics were black panther and power man.  action figure were falcon w/redwing.  our father seemed a bit perplexed by our choices, though he didn't actual comment.  

 

as an aside, are those shiny nipples on the black panther suit? could be an optical illusion.  didn't recall marvel doing a schumacher on the black panther suit. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Well if anyone can pull off vibranium nips it would be Chadwick Boseman. Dude has more charisma than the next one hundred guys in line combined.

It looks like it can eb fun but disappointed that   Rock and the other 'adults' aren't actual characters but are just avatars for the kiddies.  Also, fijnd it HILARIOUS how SJW Nazis cry the woman's midriff showing yet don't blink with the Rock showing off his 'physical' 'attributes'. LMAO

Is she using a padded bra, or did she get a boobjob?

The whole thing is pretty silly considering the complaints predated any awareness about the character's role and how she was actually deliberately playing on the sexualization of women in videogames. If anything she's precisely embracing the feminist critique through her character.
