Given that 2020 is the Justice League’s 60th anniversary, it’s apropos that the announcement of the Snyder Cut came when it did.

I doubt WB had one in mind when they approved of the other, but it’s a neat coincidence all the same.

Looking forward to the Death Metal goodness! :metal:

If you’re still enjoying Lois Lane as much as I am, I’m hopeful it’s conclusion will be worthy of a news blurb.

Does that mean we’re getting additional LGBTQ-related books in our library for Pride Month? That would be amazing! Also, You Brought Me the Ocean sounds awesome and I can’t wait to check it out!

Not sure how I feel on Synder cut. Like seriously how different is this from the movie they put out? Can it be done without refilming things?

I cant believe its actually happening! Im so hyped for HBO MAX

I hope it’s 6 1-hour episodes, that would be amazing
