The Zero Credit(s) boys are back at it with following up on new developments to old stories previously covered on the podcast. Vulture published a new article covering Joss Whedon’s fall from grace, but in what light does it paint the once-famed showrunner? Also big moves in the world of video games as companies keep eating one another – who will win the console wars and why is it Taco Bell? These questions and more insanity as John is unleashed on this week’s episode of Zero Credit(s).
In 2017, a studio had a vision: what if we completely botch a director’s vision by hiring another director to cut out 80% of what’s already been filmed and replace it with quips, jokes, and exclusively closeups to disguise the fact that we couldn’t bring back all the actors at the same time? That studio was Warner Brothers and the film is the theatrical cut of Justice League, a film with a checkered past and sordid behind the scenes tidbits. But does the movie stand up on its own as is? That’s what we aim to find out as we discuss this movie in anticipation of the Snyder Cut that releases next week. Will we want more of this stitched together, Frankenstein of a movie sitting at so exactly at a 2 hour runtime that it must have been intentional, or will this movie fall into the rare annals of history better off left forgotten? Find out in this Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading.
