Since the other thread wanted to just focus on Marvel news, I didn't want to post things in there that some may perceive as distracting from the primary topic by calling out other studios.

Over $26,000 dollars has been raised by Snyder Cut fans to campaign for the release of Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League at San Diego Comic-Con. Some of the campaign efforts are already visible thanks to pictures on social media of some of the Snyder Cut ads that have gone up around town. Of the money raised, half is going to Comic-Con initiatives, and the other half is going to the Association for Suicide Prevention.

 

The Snyder Cut has been a polarizing issue since the release of Justice League in November of 2017, but over time more people have come around on the fact that it's more complete than initially thought and drastically different at that. Warner Bros. said they had no plans to release it a year ago, but supporters have continued to press on as news about the cut continues to trickle out at a regular pace.

 

Recently, the Snyder Cut has gotten recognition from a number of big publications including The Washinton Post and Newsweek, putting the campaign into the spotlight right before the debut of their big $26,000 Comic-Con campaign. Naturally, a lot of people don't understand the details about the campaign, such as what the intent is or where the money is being spent. Fortunately, the organizers have been very transparent in this regard, so we have a good idea of what to expect from the Snyder Cut's San-Diego Comic-Con marketing initiative.

 

The Snyder Cut Project Comic-Con isn't likely to be an event that convinces Warner Bros. to finally release the Snyder Cut, but fortunately, that's not the purpose. The campaign isn't targeted at WB, but at convention attendees. The movie has received vocal support from fans, members of the cast like Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher, comic creators like Death of Superman co-writer Jerry Ordway and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, Snyder himself, and more.

 

It's clear (and has been for some time) thanks to behind the scenes images and comments from Zack Snyder, Jay Oliva, and others that not only has a significant amount of the movie been completed but also drastically different to the Joss Whedon version released in theaters. Even so, much of the online discourse still seems to focus on whether or not it "exists" or whether or not it is significantly different. The campaign is likely intended to take advantage of the large gathering of fans to address these confusions, hoping to sway public sentiment into their favor.

Earlier this month, AT&T and DC Comics announced a massive interactive event titled The Batman Experience Powered By AT&T. This three-story 68,000 square foot exhibit will be opened — free for the whole public — at the San Diego Comic Con Museum located in Balboa Park, starting at 10am Thursday July 18th and closing Sunday July 21st. The exhibit includes a massive collection of costumes, props, vehicles, comics, art, and other items from Batman's pop culture existence. In addition, you'll also experience an interactive museum and gaming section that allows you to enter and experience Batman's world.

 

Now, I have the official design images of The Batman Experience for you to see, so sit back and enjoy!

We are lucky to have him in this movie,

as he has had health issues to deal with.

New Top Gun looks kinda neat-o, for sure.

 

As for the new Walking Dead film, I hope it really captures that essence of the first three or so seasons! Just hearing the music and the announcement of Rick Grimes returning is metal as :censored:!
