@rekonym: I don't think there is going to be a continuation of Justice League after this--at least, not a version with Snyder involved. It wound up being one of the most expensive movies ever made (about $300 million), and only made $657 million worldwide after everything was said and done--the film was a bomb, and lost the studio money. And given the success of Wonder Woman and most of their movies since Justice League, I don't see the studio going back to making a brand new movie with Snyder at the helm or his influence behind it.

@kstaggs87: I think Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and even Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. are done with this particular vision of the DC movie universe after this. Given the success of most of their movies post Justice League, I don't see them going back to Snyder's vision on a permanent basis anytime soon.

I think that there's going to be some fans who think that this will magically course-correct everything that came before this. I'll check it out more as a curiosity than anything else, but I got a feeling that the drama in getting this out will remain more interesting than the final product ever will.

Why is this even still a thing? Somehow, I don't think the studio is going to cough up the money to edit the movie to what his original vision was to be--probably cost more than what it would make back in profits. Besides, it's not as if this will magically erase all the movies that he did prior to this.

Gotta love how Bethesda has the unmitigated gall to keep this mess going and bleed dry the fanbase that's left.

Why do we have to set up a Bethesda account to play two games over 25 years old?

The games may be dirt cheap, but I think I'm going to pass all the same.

@Lord_Sesshy: I think the revamp is more the studio's decision, and not so much the director's. Had not the negative reaction of the trailer and Sonic's reveal took place, the studio would have been content with its initial release date two weeks before Frozen 2 opens. Now with them deciding to revamp Sonic at the last minute, they have no choice but to move the release date to February, which is not the ideal time to release a big-budget movie. January and February is know as the time where new film releases go to die--it's a dumping ground where movies with little to no financial expectations are released. If the studio had more faith in it, it could have pushed for a spring release, but at this rate, I think they might try to make an attempt for this to be a hit, but it's slim at this point. The whole thing seems like a movie that was made by committee by out of touch studio execs who hope to capitalize on the nostalgia that people have for Sonic. it's a 2019 (now, 2020) movie that feels so out of date.

@Lord_Sesshy: Believe me, Paramount is not making the changes "for the fans". The studio is sinking $90 million into a film that they hope to be a new film franchise for them, and that doesn't even count what they are spending for merchandising and countless product tie-ins. They changed the release date because they know they won't be able to compete with Frozen 2 in November, or the new Star Wars movies in December. Add in the backlash that the design and trailer received, and you got a studio that's scrambling to salvage some sort of profitability from the whole mess.

@alucardswrath: To be fair, Iron Man 3 was director Shane Black's financially successful movie to date. A better quote would have been "From the creator of Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, and The Monster Squad", as he had written all of those movies. On the plus side, at least the movie is going to be R-rated, so there's that.

@bourne2live

It's actually part of a work release program. I still gotta report to my PO every other week.
