Possibly. The new JL trailer certainly doesn't dispute it. It's like in addition to quips, Whedon replaced Batman with Wonder Woman. They might as retitle it Wonder Woman & The Justice League.

They love the slow-motion because it gives them a better view of her jiggling tighs, the strongest symbol of feminism in the whole movie.

It's funny how critics of Snyder and his slow-motion/speed ramp style fucking LOVED it when Wonder Woman did non-stop in every scene. You would think Patty Wutshername invented action movies from the way CHUD splooges over her.

It seems Heather Antos (the milkshake girl) is encouraging the doxxing of her critics.

He spent the most effort to stay in shape in the comics, but Moviemandias fights like he's from Blade 2 or something. Dude puts Batman to shame.

That's the most confusing part of the Watchmen movie for me. The fight scenes make everyone look like they're having a mild form of super-strength, a suspicion that only gets worse over time, what with Owlman shattering limbs in under 5 moves or Ozymandias jumping around like a fighting game character.
Very quick search seems to indicate comic book Ozymandias was an "olympic level acrobat", i don't know if that would help move like in the movie or not but i kinda doubt it

I think 300 and Dawn of the Dead are the only movies where Snyder's aesthetic fit the material he was working with. Watchmen is actually one of the biggest examples of his aesthetic not working, Watchmen is supposed to be a deconstruction of capeshit but Snyder's flashiness and ultra badass action sequences make it feel like regular capeshit.

It can be good when used correctly, like in 300 & parts of Watchmen.

When he's left unrestrained, we get shit like Sucker Punch, MoS, and BVS. Overhyped action sequences on crack.

Snyder's god awful cinematography
How dare you, Snyder's cinematography is pure genius! Music video style flashiness and heavy-handed religious symbolism are the highest forms of ART! Here's my 500 word essay explaining the nuanced genius of Snyder's films:
