In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

Little do we realize that by "one-fourth" he means that the Snyder cut is actually four times as long as the 2-hour movie we got; a whopping eight hours long! :p

I'm actually really excited about this. I mean, I don't have any expectations that this is going to be great cinema or anything. But JL was a movie I was really excited for, and the bastardized version we got was just incredibly disappointing. And coming sandwiched between TLK and TLJ, it felt like all my favorite movie franchises had just made good on a suicide pact or something. 2017 was a really stressful year for me, and the movie theater utterly failed to be a pleasant escape. I'd love to see this at least provide a more satisfying experience than what we have now.

 

I had figured that if the Snyder cut ever did actually happen, it would be a half-finished turd flung by WB execs to try to get people to shut up about it. But this sounds like it's going to be a real attempt to make this a finished product. I'm downright giddy at the thought of them even bringing back Junkie XL and/or Hans Zimmer to do a new score. Danny Elfman is great, but his score just never felt like a good match for the movie.

 

I am curious about what exactly we'll be getting. Whether the final cut is two hours or six or whatever in between, the movie was made with the understanding that there would be a Justice League Part 2 coming a couple years later, right? So will this be a complete story that leaves tails for a sequel we'll never see? Or will this be a DC Infinity War that will never get an Endgame? At least we won't have to wait too awfully long to find out.

Since this is a big deal for HBO Max, I'd assume it'll be broken into episodes and released on a weekly basis so they can milk it (like The Mandalorian was).  I don't care, so long as we're getting it. 
 
It also means that they might put back a lot of what originally got cut from the four-hour version since they no longer have to worry about a theatrical runtime.  In fact, HBO may actually prefer the longer version now so they can have more episodes.
 
As for what comes after, I imagine that all depends on the reception this gets.  If it's a roaring success, WB might just greenlight a JL2 (or MoS2) with Snyder back in the director's chair.

Yeah. Not completely a Official definitive answer, but it seems very clear that that is what they want. They want Snyderverse gone, they are ensuring that onky specific ‘hand-picked’ characters are remaining.

 

if this is 100% the direction they’re going, i personally think this is a bad choice.

One thing I learned about Hollywood when they adapt an existing franchise is that they won't stay true to that original source. They will always change things around, for right or wrong. The movie version of the character is not the same as the comic book / cartoon / toyline character the movie is based upon, even if they share the same name and a slight resemblance. For many comic book fans, black Superman will be their "long-nosed Optimus Prime with flames" moment that we all had back in 2007.
