While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad did sound business enterprise at the box office environment, equally films uncovered on their own on the receiving finish of a essential mauling (and a good deal of admirers had troubles with the movies as well).
1 of the complications quite a few cited is the extremely dark tone of the DCEU, and Geoff Johns – who was promoted to inventive head for Warner Bros’ DC Movie franchise previously this calendar year – has been speaking about how that would not be the case in future films:
“Mistakenly in the past I feel the studio has explained, “Oh, DC films are gritty and dark and which is what would make them diverse”. That could not be extra incorrect”, Johns instructed the Wall Avenue Journal. “It is a hopeful and optimistic view of everyday living. Even Batman has a glimmer of that in him. If he did not feel he’d make tomorrow improved, he’d end”.
The posting also goes on to say that Justice League will ‘directly handle Batman’s serious steps in the previous movie’ – exclusively, torturing and killing criminals and nearly killing Superman – and Warner Bros. executive Jon Berg provides that “we accelerated the [Justice League] story to get to the hope and optimism a minimal speedier”.
I was not a supporter of Batman v Superman or Suicide Squad, but the journey to Justice League will sting a minimal less if the finish vacation spot is stunning. Johns is saying all the appropriate points below – his “we’re striving to consider a seriously challenging look at every thing to make positive we keep accurate to the characters and explain to stories that rejoice them” is particularly telling – and hopefully his influence will be felt in upcoming year’s DC films.
Looks like Scarecrow had the appropriate plan all along…
