Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa's film Justice League will re-release in the form of The Snyder Cut in 2021 on HBO Max

The final product on our screens, whether it’s a TV show or a film, is a filtered result of many stages of production. Sometimes the content works, sometimes it does not. And it’s only in the aftermath that detailed scrutiny takes place. Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa’s (Khal Drogo) 2017 film, Justice League, was the first cinematic attempt to bring together a DCEU (DC Extended Universe) team (like Marvel’s The Avengers). Despite its superhero-ensemble appeal, the film bombed on both, commercial and critical levels. But for three years, fans had been asking the makers to release the original version directed by Zack Snyder; namely ‘The Snyder Cut’. Now, after a long period of speculation, Zack Snyder himself has made the announcement for the release of the Snyder Cut, called ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ in 2021 on HBO Max.

Jason Momoa put up the poster for the film on Instagram. “Finally it’s happening,” he wrote. He thanked the fans for their constant support, “justice served. all my aloha to everyone who made this happen. all the fans. we love you”. Zack Snyder, the man behind films like 300 and Man of Steel, had directed most of Justice League when suddenly he had to step down due to a personal tragedy. Joss Whedon (The Avengers) took over and completed the film with certain reshoots and editing. The film was slammed by critics and fans alike due to its ‘light-hearted tone’. With Snyder’s announcement, the fans would hope for an original, darker take on the DCEU.

As per CBR.com, Zack has said that he’s putting together a trailer and that it would release soon. The Snyder Cut will be compiled and edited by Zack Snyder from the initial footage he shot. The film’s release on the streaming platform, HBO Max gives its producers, Warner Media (also the parent company of HBO) another chance of mining the untapped profits from its ambitious franchise.

Recently, Jason Momoa had fueled the clamor by outrightly saying, “Release the fucking Snyder Cut” in a video. “We’re just sitting around doing nothing,” Jason started off. “Fucking release the Snyder Cut, am I right? Release the fucking Snyder Cut. You know what I mean? Like, what are we waiting for? There’s some goodies in there. I’m just gonna go ahead and put it out there. Generally, the shit I put out there comes true. Let’s hope it does,” he said. And it did, indeed!

#ReleaseTheSnyderCut had been trending on social media for quite some time, and many actors from the cast had supported it. Apart from Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) had come out in demand of Zack Snyder’s version of the film. However, Henry Cavill (Superman) chose a neutral stand and wanted to focus on the future.

Now, that the revamped version of the movie will release for sure, we hope it brings a crackling light into the darkness that the cinematic landscape of DC has mostly been. Jason’s character from Justice League also has an upcoming solo movie, Aquaman 2, set to release in December 2022.

Pedro Pascal becomes a superhero in Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes

The year 2020 was a Red Wedding for humanity. In times like these, we often wish for a superhero to have existed in reality. Even though we don’t have superheroes in real life, we do have superhero movies to help us get through tough times. What’s better than seeing our favourite stars donning the cape? Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal joins the superhero squad of We Can Be Heroes.

The Spy Kids filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is back with another action-hero-family genre movie. Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook and Christian Slater are members of a superhero squad called Heroics. Priyanka Chopra is the Director of the Heroics. The movie begins with the group kidnapped and their kids left to try to save them. The film will also have a cameo by Sharkboy and Lavagirl, superhero avatars created by Rodriguez in 2005.

Rodriguez has often expressed the desire to work with Pedro. The new movie will follow the same light-hearted comedy and sci-fi fantasy theme as his earlier works. Looks like the year 2020 is finally ending with a good note. (So many Game of Thrones stars appearing on other platforms, and of course, Biden’s win!).

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin updates fans about Winds of Winter

Game of Thrones TV series ended more than a year ago. The final season of the show divided the fan-base into two. One loved it, the other wanted something more. Hardcore fans are still waiting for the next book of the series, The Winds of Winter.

Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin recently updated fans about his progress on the upcoming book. He noticed a sudden spike in the number of viewers on his blog Not a Blog, and joked, “Sometimes I do get the feeling that most of you reading my posts here care more about what is happening in Westeros than what is happening in the United States.”

He further wrote, “So let me assure you that, when not sweating out election returns or brooding over other real-world problems, I have continued to work on THE WINDS OF WINTER.

No, sorry, still not done, but I do inch closer. It is a big book. I try not to dwell on that too much. I write a chapter at a time, a page-at-a-time, a sentence at-a-time, a word at-a-time. It is the only way. And sometimes I rewrite.” 

Martin explained he has been spending a lot of time with the Lannisters. Cersei and Tyrion in particular. He has also visited Dorne and the Old Town in his book. He is currently writing new chapters, revisiting and tweaking old ones as well.

George wrote, “None of this is even remotely new. It is how the first five books were written.” 

The Game of Thrones author is slowly picking up speed. He once gave an example of how the books will be different from the show. Are you excited for The Winds of Winter? Talk to us in the comments below!

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The popularity and success of the show have left fans worldwide wanting for more. HBO has already teased the fans with the announcement of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. Moreover, the television network has added to the hype by adding Paddy Considine to the show’s cast as King Viserys. Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is really happy with the show’s progress. Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog :

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Well, aside from COVID-19 slowing everything down, we are making great progress on the HBO prequel HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Ryan and Miguel are in London, casting has begun, it is all looking very exciting.”

He also talked about his other projects, “I wish I could say that things are also going great on all the other television and film projects I am involved with, either as a producer or as the author of the original source material (i.e. novels and short stories). I can’t. Very little shooting is taking place, and almost nothing is being greenlit. Of course, development continues… but there’s a reason they call it “development hell.” Sigh. 

So that’s where all that stands. Or at least, that’s as much as I am allowed to tell you right now. Hang in there, friends.” 

The great strides in the progress of the much-awaited series are welcome news for all the fans worldwide. Are you excited for the House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!
