Doesn’t it seem like movies go from the theater to DVD way faster than they used to?

Well on February 13, digital retailers will be selling The Justice League. Less than 90 days from the film’s release date. I’m in my 30’s and it feels like forever ago when you’d have to wait a year to get a copy of a VHS tape from your local Blockbuster Video. Due to the lack of box office dollars, critical acclaim, audience reception, and anything else a movie is supposed to do, I can only imagine the studio is eager to recoup as much money as possible, as soon as possible.

For those of you still collecting DVD’s the Blu-Ray will come out on March 13, 2018.

Here’s where it gets interesting…

In scrolling through Twitter on January 18th I came across a couple articles trumpeting potential deleted scenes to be included in the DVD. There was even a brief commercial mentioning additional “scenes” but then Slashfilm.com reported only one extra scene would be included. They cited the sticker on the version to be sold at Wal-Mart as the source. No matter how many we get, I don’t feel I’m alone when I say Justice League definitely could have been a little longer. Who knows if the added time will provide the necessary character development to make an ensemble piece truly work or maybe some of the things we saw in the trailers that didn’t make the final cut, we will find out in the coming weeks.

I would advise everyone to not get your hopes up. And that is speaking from my own personal experience. If you’ve seen the Suicide Squad Director’s Cut, you know exactly what I mean. I think it made Suicide Squad even worse… somehow. Rarely does the inclusion of deleted material actually improve a product. Sure Batman v Superman’s twenty something minutes of footage did wonders for the theatrical version but in the end we still got BvS.

If anything, the release of the DVD should hopefully squander all this crap regarding the rumored “Zack Snyder Cut”. I believe Snyder’s version of a finished product doesn’t exist and we should accept it. What happened, happened, what’s done is done, and it’s time to move forward.

A final thought, as fans of DC Comics and films… we have to completely eliminate the childish notion that anybody, other than those dumb enough to sign one, gives a shit about an online petition. So continuing to put artificial pressure on a studio to release a non-existent entity through internet signatures, will not alter Warner Brothers’ game plan for the DCEU. You might ask “are we just supposed to keep taking this? Just keep paying hard earned cash for a bad product?” Well, no. Unfortunately not much can be done if you’re just a regular person like myself. But believe it or not, audiences have influenced the path of DC movies way more than an online petition ever could by simply not going to the theater.

Want to know how to prompt change, make it about money. Guaranteed you see results.
