On this week’s full episode of Film Club, A.A. Dowd and fellow A.V. Club staffer Alex McLevy discuss the DCEU—its origins and evolution, its strengths and weaknesses, its best and worst installments. What they don’t get into much there is the new director’s cut that inspired the topic of conversation. For that, check out this very special bonus episode of the podcast, wherein the Alexes break down the fabled Snyder Cut (now streaming on HBO Max) and discuss whether it’s better or worse than the version we all saw and disliked a few years ago. Fair warning: There will be spoilers.
