    What can save the DCEU?

    Post  Rickster on November 19th 2017, 7:45 pm

    So Justice League projected weekend box office is a disappointing $96 Million (Thor Ragnarok opened with $121 Million Wonder Woman opened with $103 Mill.) So the DCEU is in trouble and I'm curious on what your guys thoughts how to repair this universe?

    I think WB is too controlling and should let DC do it's own thing (Which from my understanding that's how Disney is with Marvel most of the time)
    I also think Cinematic universe work when it evolves slowly like how Marvel and DC's Arrowverse came to be.

    I'm biased here, but I think whatever they do, they need to keep a tone distinct from Marvel. I think superhero flicks in general will avoid audience burnout if we keep variety in tone among them.
    As I mentioned elsewhere, I think Wonder Woman could be a good template going forward for balancing weight with humor, even though a few of us would prefer they keep things dark and heavy.

    The problem is Zack Snyder. He's either the writer, director, or producer for all the films. In some cases, he's 2 out of 3.
