Film & Animation

Never miss a Film Theory! ►
So now that we've all finally got to see the infamous Snyder Cut of DC's The Justice League, we're good right? Wrong! Now the people want to make it CANON! Well Theorists, what if I told you it already was? What if the original vision of Zack Snyder's Justice League has ALWAYS been canon? That's right! Before you send off that #RestoreTheSnyderVerse tweet, watch this video! It may have you saying #SnyderVerseIsAlreadyCanon instead.

    I do have a theory that's probably a lot more complicated than this one here, but might actually be more probable. My theory is that there's a third timeline that predates both timelines shown here where Man of Steel was followed up by a version of JL which has Superman all the way through, but eventually leads to the "Knightmare" sequence. This is leads to a second timeline where MoS and BvS happen, then Joss Whedon's JL, and also leads to "Knightmare". The third one is just the second one but replace Joss Whedon's JL with the Snyder Cut. The reason why I think this is what's actually happening is because this would explain how Barry could show up in BvS whilst also starting off both cuts of JL with Superman being dead. The way that MatPat showcased his theory made it sound like BvS is on a different timeline to Joss Whedon's JL, but that wouldn't make sense since the events of BvS would have to happen for Superman to be dead. They could just say "Sh*t happened and Superman died in the process", but that sounds like a cheap copout. The only thing I can't explain with this theory is what happened between MoS and JL in the first timeline, though since I've already made a different version of an already existing movie let's just say everything in BvS happened except for Superman dying at the end, which makes my cheap copout criticism very hypocritical.

    "95% from fans" ^ Film theory should know better than to promote speciousness. There is no such thing as a fan score. This is an internet poll. You can't document that the person polled actually saw the film, payed to see it, or that the same person is not review bombing the film. *It's worthless.* The most respected audience metric is CinemaScore which polls *ticket buyers* right after they exit the theater. This can *never happen* for Snyder Cut, since it is *hidden* behind a paywall on HBOMax. Per HBOMax - Snyder cut is *less popular than* Godzilla vs. Kong. Mortal Combat. and even... Wonder Woman 84. ⬆️ This provides actual meaningful context.

    The plot of this film is objectively even more idiotic, and there are no stakes either. it's a 4 hour garbage fire vs. a 2 hour garbage fire.

    10:18 there is a problem with your theory MatPat. If there are two timelines in the DCEU, one being the josstice league (bad timeline) and the other being the snyder cut (good timeline), why is batman v superman in the good timeline? i mean i know that some of the hallucinations where in batman v superman, but superman did die IN batman v superman, and if superman died in the good timeline with the snyder cut coming after, how is superman ALSO dead in the start of josstice league? i mean in both versions of the film we see the other members of the Justice League ressurecting superman, BECAUSE superman died in the hands of Doomsday in batman v superman, and if batman v superman is in the good timeline with the snyder cut, how was superman ALSO dead in Josstice League if batman v superman did not occur in the first place? so, in my point of view, the josstice league timeline had all the events of batman v superman, except for the dream about the knightmare future that Bruce Wayne had. But in the snyder cut timeline, ALL the events of batman v superman did happen, including the dream that batman had.

    I've never liked the idea of multiverses since it ultimately makes everything meaningless. If there's an infinite number of batmans one of them dying doesn't matter. If I wanted conflicting timelines I would make sure I established who was the storyteller of each version: This is the recount of a soldier who fought in the war but he's lying to protect the honor of his friend. This is the official story the government told to the masses. This is the story told a hundred years later by a bard who embellishes by giving everyone superpowers. All of the stories have some element of truth and you can make it horror or romantic comedy depending on the teller and you can retcon whatever you want so long as it's plausible the stuff your ignoring came from a source who didn't know/ misinterpreted the real story or had motive to lie. Let the fans try to piece together what REALLY happened.

    I love DC but the DCEU is terrible... It needs to borrow from the DCAU (Timmverse), Young Justice and even the MCU...Not the New52, there are stories and characters I like but they need to do what the Timmverse did and give us their most iconic version of these characters. Give us comics not some dark depressing grey mess... Lex Luthor was more Riddler than Luthor, Supermans parents were terrible, Batman should not be assembling the Justice League that should be Superman or Wonder Woman... Dooms Day was more Bizarro, BvS shouldn't of started the cinematic world ( I know MoS but BvS really set up this universe) the nightmare bullshit is weak, The fact that there are 2 different movies that are the same movie kinda... is a fucking joke and says everything I am trying to ×100. Joker was terrible. Harley is ok but getting pushed like John Cena in 2005... Suicide Squad was maybe the worst movie with the best trailer im the history of movies... Wonder Woman is ok, Shazam was a good pick. Aquaman isn't Aquaman lol... He's ok but he's not my main issue so W.E. Flash was ehh.. The Universe needs to be replaced and Flash Point could be perfect but that means we still could get him as Flash and I do not want thR

    Correction: when you said that in josstice league there was no reference to a higher authority or a superior being to steppenwolf, that’s actually not true. At the end of the whedon, steppenwolf starts his attack and releases the parademons free, he says “For unity” “For darkseid” It was poorly put in. I’m sure most of the viewers are normal people who know batman and superman (not stereotyping ) and don’t know the villains that are comic only. So that line fell on deaf ears, to most. I bet some would’ve heard it as dark side too.

    they must be completely out of their mind to not have Znyder and only his version expanding. We want that, the dollars are in that and their reputation is in there. But then again, companies in the entertainment industry is whacked today. For example: sony scratched the Days Gone 2 development to make a Last of Us next gen remake that NOBODY asked for, especially after the fiasko of TLOU 2 and The Avengers fiasko of a game shut down Deus Ex. These companies makes what THEY think will generate more money while the audiance who are to give them the money gets dissapointed, backstabbed and fooled which does the opposite to their visions. Oh well, guess they want to push their luck on being untouchable of the cancel movement but they're gonna be scraping of bubblegums on the sidewalk if they keep pushing it - and tbh, a part of me sincerely think they deserve it

    Still confuses me as to why people think either JL movie was good. At all. Also, Snydercut is far less coherent than Wheadon's. And idk how he did that. How do you make Wheadon's JL make less sense? Glad Lois randomly showed up to pause Supes on his nigh-killing spree. Dude so many holes in this theory, this is some of your worst work, dude. The Flash from Snyder JL is better and more precise, which is why he missed the mark on the box drop and had to reverse time to get it right. Except the JossLeague Flash got it right the first time. You're trying really hard to fix Snyder's broken story lol. Interesting, but incredibly flawed.
