It seems that some folks are so upset with the way that Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice turned out that they are petitioning the studio to have the helmer removed from his duties on The Justice League Part One which begins production next month...The notion has zero chance of working. One such recent effort asking to have Colin Trevorrow removed from "Star Wars: Episode IX" had 25,482 supporters but had no impact at all with production now underway.
Snyder's style, tone and approach are arguably the biggest criticisms in the reviews for 'Dawn' - the director gets the
blame for things like the film's pacing and muddled narrative which have
been labelled "messy" and "incoherent" in most reviews.
There are two different petitions to get Snyder removed not just
from 'League' but all other involvement in the DC Entertainment's long term Extended Universe plans--The first by Bryan Cruz has 5,000 supporters. The second by Taufique Radhakrishnan has 500.
One person who wasn't a fan of DOJ is Hollywood Babble-On podcast
host Kevin Smith. The filmmaker, who helped promote the film during a special about the upcoming DCEU earlier this year, says he did not
care for the film said it pales in comparison to his love for
The CW's "The Flash" TV series :Smith directed an episode of the show for its 2nd season that will air during sweeps.
"Remember before when we were talking about Flash, and
that it has heart, humor, and spectacle. The movie I felt like didn't
really have a heart. It was certainly f--king humorless, there was
nothing funny going on in that world whatsoever, but it had lots of
spectacle. Like you can't take that away from Snyder. Boy, he knows how to like
compose a frame and how to setup a shot. Beautiful visual stylist but
you need more than just the pictures, you need like characterization and
these characters seemed off character, particularly Superman... But,
uh, you know, I'm happy that the DC Universe is going… I guess?
"Justice League: Part 1" is currently targeting a November 2017 release.
