I would wager that Campbell is the first to blast off. He is going to crush WB and GJ. He has been paid, and has to maintain his credibility for future projects. He is going to claim that the film is not his vision and his hands were tied. Geoff Johns is going to take a firm smack from him. Also, I don't think he has any project in the pipeline.

Don't hold your breath.

I'd be MIGHTY surprised if we got a Director's Cut version. Maybe if they DO make a sequel they might release such a version around THAT time, but not before, IMHO. I kind of doubt they are inclined to put the money into releasing two versions of the film to DVD at this time (especially since one is likely to cut into the sales of the other), and I see ZERO chance that they would release ONLY a Director's Cut. That would be admitting that the original version wasn't worth releasing on DVD, and even if you think that's true, they aren't going to send that message.

I'm not even sure they would put deleted scenes on a release at this time, since usually when they put deleted scenes on, the assumption is that people watching them will be able to understand why they weren't included in the final film, whereas it sounds like a lot of people would look at deleted scenes and seriously wonder why they WEREN'T included.

Are you serious? Every two-bit movie gets an "expanded edition" now! I'm 100% sure they'll use the "extra footage" to entice fans to buy the DVD. It's as good as done.

Really? Released at the same time as the theatrical version? Maybe I'm watching the wrong movies, but I'm not seeing a whole lot of movies that have such an extended cut released at the same time as the theatrical version, and I don't see the trend of doing so with every movie that you seem to see. What I see is a trend of releasing various "editions" that have the same exact MOVIE, but a bunch of cheap to produce "extras" tossed on a "bonus disc", most often only included with the more expensive Blu-Ray these days.

Unless all the footage was already finished, I can't see them incorporating it into the movie, and I'd be surprised if the studio was willing to spend MORE money on creating the additional finished scenes needed for a Director's Cut at this point.

We'll see. I will happily admit my error if necessary. The MOST I expect to see at the time of the DVD release are some very rough, unfinished "deleted scenes" tossed in as extras.

You were saying? Most of these came out at the same time as the initial DVD or a few months later & most of the BR are available on DVD.

Warner is releasing a Director's Cut of Sucker Punch because that was cut and edited all to hell. Since Green Lantern suffered the same problems maybe we'll a Director's Cut after all.

The problem with that list is that most of them aren't effects heavy movies.

Would you like me to provide a list of links to all the movies for which this was NOT the case? I can pretty much guarantee it will be longer. (And more family friendly. I haven't seen a single one of those movies, and there are only a couple I have ANY interest in ever seeing. Tastes differ.)

I note that a VAST majority of your examples are "Unrated" cuts, which are really a different animal, IMHO. There isn't really much additional cost involved, since they are most likely simply restoring finished scenes that were cut only for the purposes of attaining a lower MPAA rating, and they appeal to a different segment of the viewing audience, the type that wants to see more sex and/or violence. A GL "Director's Cut" would be appealing to the SAME audience that the original film had, and so would cut more heavily into the theatrical edition's sales.

But we shall see. If they actually release an edition that inserts new, finished scenes to mitigate what some saw as the flaws in the original, I'll be overjoyed to be wrong.

Not quite sure what to make of this. I sense I am being mocked, but not in a manner that actually disputes anything I said. I dunno, others here seem much better at the mockery thing.

Maybe you can improve it with a Director's Cut?

I really want to see if a director's cut is out there. Sometimes it saves a movie.
