Superman: TAS: Public Enemies [WIP]
Time

Latest version updates

In the latest draft, I removed the Hawkman and Captain Marvel fight, but kept in Supes and Bats disguising themselves as them, Lex covers this by saying the two were amongst the people he wanted to bring the two into custody, and Power Girl is still referenced as having helped out with convincing them to help.
8:42

So now it’s just a fun fanservice/cameo thing

Batman: The Killing Joke-The DCAU Cut (WIP)
Time

CourtlyHades296 said:

In DCAU canon, Batgirl never gets crippled (as Batman Beyond shows Commissioner Barbara walking without a wheelchair).

I figured someone would bring that up, might as well be an oppertune time to say I haven’t considered Batman Beyond canon since the end of JLU, my headcanon is that future was altered when John Stewart rejected Hawkgirl and chose Vixen. That, plus Bruce had advance foreknowledge of that future also so he’d have changed a few things about himself.

I find Tom King’s recent Batman/Catwoman book, which is itself a sequel to Mask of the Phantasm but has an alternate future involving Helena Wayne, a big help in this regard.

Hell, even if you want to consider this ‘pure’ DCAU, it doesn’t necessarily contradict Batman Beyond if you don’t want it to, because Barbara ends up walking again in the main DC comics anyway

Batman: The Killing Joke-The DCAU Cut (WIP)
Time

I’ve made a few little tweeks to the latest draft

-Replaced an awkward music transition that felt too abrupt and was building to something more dramatic when the very next scene is something more composed

-The Joker no longer professes his ‘innocence’ and doesn’t make reference to being in a ‘basement’, after Batman calls his name, he now goes straight into beating him up. I’ve still left it a bit ambiguous as to whether or not this is the actual Joker or not due to what happens in the KJ footage, but at least now it’s less clear to the audience until the reveal comes a little later

Batman: The Killing Joke-The DCAU Cut (WIP)
Time

…Or The Kitty Kitty cut if you prefer.

Yes, this is a bit of a different type of Killing Joke edit…I’m merging it with a small percentage of the Catwoman romance from Batman: Hush to replace the entirety of the Batgirl sub-plot from the original.

Here’s the timeline

-Bruce talks with Nightwing and meets Selina and Thomas Elliot at the party

-Battle with Bane. We cut the beginning of Bruce’s investigation into Ivy as she’s not in the cut

-Bruce and Selina attend the opera. Harley Quinn attacks, Thomas is killed by A ‘Joker’ (who pleads innocence) who Batman almost kills, but is ultimately incarcerated. This Joker indeed turns out to be an imposter (Killing Joke) and doesn’t desire another Bat-beating

-Killing Joke plays out as normal

-After the Joker’s song and dance number, we find Bruce and Dick in the Batcave, Selina calls Bruce

-Bruce rendevouz with the cops and aqquires the final clue to Joker’s lair. Remainder of Killing Joke plays out

-New mid-credits scene is Bruce and Selina sleeping together.

As a bonus, I’m also putting together a two-part 20 to 25 minute version complete with the intro and outro of Batman: The Animated Series. The TV cuts will have a few things omitted that you can find in the feature version.

Superman: TAS: Public Enemies [WIP]
Time

Recently, the fan editor whose Brainiac Attacks edit inspired my own put out an extended edit of the Superman TAS episode “Little Girl Lost”, which featured a few minutes or so of footage from the animated movie “Superman/Batman: Apokolips” chronicling Kara’s arrival, reaction and adaption to Earth.

Now, obviously the animation and voice actors for these sequences were notably different…but it actually worked seamlessly with the narrative, so I figure, if it doesn’t intrude on the established story all that much, should sequences like that be integrated?

I have given strong consideration to structuring “Public Enemies” as a Superman TAS episode, it helps because the voice actors for the DCAU lend their talents to the film, and with a few trims here and there, you can make it ‘fit’.

It helps that there’s virtually no mention of Clark and Power Girls’ relationship to one another, probably this was done to make the film more ‘accessible’, I mean, you could easily mistake her for Kara with a different haircut or just a generic heavy of Lex that acts as Bruce and Clark’s ‘mole’.

All references to Hiro being the Toyman have been cut.

Currently the idea is that the story opens with Lex’s inauguration where he introduces Power Girl as part of her team, so it’s established who she is, then we see the team try to recruit Superman, who refuses. In this cut, Lex takes Superman’s refusal and connects it to the “irrationality” brought on by the radiation of the Kryptonite meteor, and then places the bounty on his head. There is no murder of John Corbin (Metallo), but it still means Superman is a wanted man. The remainder of the cut is the last 20 or so minutes where it becomes a race against time to infiltrate Luthor’s stronghold, get the info, and stop the meteor, with Luthor getting in the way.

Looks like you cut out some parts of “motherbox clip” to replace it with some other footage, I’d rather extend it with this additional footage without losing parts of the clip (and use longer/full version of the song).

When I uploaded the current version of the intro to Youtube, it automatically listed the song title and artist in the copyright information so that’s already proven handy.

Zack Snyder's Justice League: The New Studio Cut (Released)
Time

Not the most inspired title, but to give it context, I had made a previous ‘studio cut’ in widescreen, but I wasn’t satisfied with how it flowed, so I tried again, this time keeping to the original aspect ratio throughout to make it more authentic

This cut doesn’t rock the boot too much, but here are the changes

Changes

-Movie now opens with Bruce’s knightmare from the epilogue. Bruce’s meeting with Martian Manhunter cut

-Diana’s meeting with Bruce and her Age of Heroes history lesson moved directly to just after Bruce wakes up from the knightmare

-After Diana asks where the others are, we cut to titles (a mix of the Whedon cut intro, the beginning of the official Snyder cut, and the “It’s Time” motherbox promo, as well as shots of Steppenwolf slaughtering the Amazons to detail his arrival much more swiftly)

-Bruce meets Arthur

-Steppenwolf learning of Atlantis’ location moved to directly after Arthur refuses to join Bruce

-Lois grieving Clark moved to after this scene, from there movie plays as normal until…

-…Clark is resurrected, he does not fight the League and leaves with Lois for the farm

-All reference to Clark coming back ‘wrong’ removed

-Movie resumes as normal until the end of Professor Stone’s speech

-Lex Luthor and Deathstroke scene removed

Available now.

Running Time: 2 hours 50 minutes

Superman The Animated Series: Risk and Revelation [Brainiac Attacks Edit] (Released)
Time

Some updates

-The original version recieved feedback from both musiced of Faneit.org and Fanedit895 (not 796, my mistake) himself, both were very encouraging, they gave me a few points on how to best approach it. As a result, a great deal of it has changed and it is now much more ‘conclusive’ than my original attempt was. Superman gets a win over Brainiac in the new cut, where as before he got beaten up twice pretty soundly with no real resolution. This was because I intended to do a follow-up episode but when I watched the movie once again for footage I found the continuity a little too problematic to work around in order to pull that off convincingly.

Feronstost, if you’re looking for the other version, I’ll link you to it

Amazing Spider-Man: The Night Gwen Stacy Died Extended Cut (Comic Book Fan Edit) (released)
Time

…No, not a comic book movie edit, just a comic book edit

I decided to spend the morning tackling a timeless Spider-Man classic (issue 121), and seeing if I could enhance the original story. Using pages from “Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy”, I’ve pieced together such an attempt, occasionally rearranging panels here and there to tighten the bolts.

And no, I didn’t add anything from Sins Past, just in case you were going to ask…

Superman III: The Ultimate Lester Cut (coming soon)
Time

Richard Lester gets a bad rep. In the 1980s he was very much the Joss Whedon to Richard Donner’s Zack Snyder, a man tasked with working on a troubled production and producing a film that proved to be quite divisive amongst fans, who fought tooth and nail to see the ‘true’ vision restored.

Lester’s Superman movies have their place in history, but are all too often frowned upon, and yet, there is still so much to admire about both his version of Superman II and the film he had 100% control over, Superman III.

Superman II has the pink bear reveal (much more grounded, sweet, and humane than Lois firing blanks at Clark), the Paris bomb threat, Lois making orange juice for herself, scenes that I feel you can throw into virtually any of the four movies, even the first one, and it wouldn’t make a difference.

So to this extent, I decided to create a unique edit…a Superman III cut which retains almost all the familiar elements, but not they are ‘strengthened’ by the addition of as much non-story essential moments from Lester’s Superman II as I can find. To make the edit even more unique, I have rearranged some scenes and used one of Lester’s Superman II sequences to close out an important plot point of the third film.

Here’s the timeline (spoilers ahead for a near 40-year old movie)

-Classic 1980s Warner Bros movie logo
-Jor-El narration/Krypton’s destruction from Superman Returns
-Opening titles (Superman III outer space titles)
-Establishing shot of Metropolis (Superman IV)
-Junkyard Fight now a dream sequence to kick things off
-Clark wakes up, gets call from Lois (Superman IV)
-Clark heads off to the Planet, we see Gus at work
-Clark and Lois arrange their travel plans, we cut Lois mentioning Bermuda.
-Gus at work and taking money out of the company
-Lois makes orange juice (Superman II LC)
-Superman III plays unaltered for a while
-Gus’ fall from Webster’s apartment cut
-Superman III plays unaltered for a while
-Lois at the Eiffel Tower (Superman II LC)
-Drunken Evil Superman hears Lois in distress and snaps out of his funk to rescue her, disposes of the bomb
-Superman III resumes as normal until Clark visits Lana and Ricky, and a drunken Brad is humiliated
-Pink Bear reveal for Lois, her referring to jumping in the river is cut. Instead you’re led to believe she’s talking about her Paris assingment
-End scene of Superman III/Flyby
-End Credits

Superman The Animated Series: Risk and Revelation [Brainiac Attacks Edit] (Released)
Time

This divisive little piece of now-obscure Superman media was released around the peak of marketing for Superman Returns. It’s been widely criticised by fans of Superman: The Animated Series for, amongst other things, inconsistent continuity and characterisations (particularly with Lex Luthor) as well as bait-and-switch storytelling revolving around Clark wanting to share his secret with Lois Lane.

Many fans were disappointed that this film felt more like an Elseworlds tale and not an authentic ‘bridge’ between Superman: TAS and Justice League.

I’ve gone back and forth on whether or not I should do this for a while, but recently I watched a pretty good 50 or so minute version of it from an editor called Fanedit895, who hosts it on the Internet Archive. This version realized the potential of the story by rearranging scenes and deleting all sequences with Lex Luthor to avoid even touching on his characterizations, as well as removing the bait-and-switch so Lois knows.

So impressed was I that I decided the time had come to tackle this head on, but I wanted to set it apart from what this editor had managed, and have decided to try to cut it down to a TV episode length. Right now I’m testing out a 35-minute trim, but I’d like to cut at least ten more minutes.

Plans for this include

-Very little of Lex
-Rearrange some earlier scenes
-Have Lois learn Clark is Superman

Custom opening titles
