I think the biggest problem is that DC saw what Marvel was doing and wanted to emulate it while simultaneously trying to be the polar opposite. Where Marvel went with the lighter, more jokey tone, DC went for more dour and gritty. They saw the success that Christopher Nolan brought to the Dark Knight trilogy and wanted to emulate that without realizing that such a tone fit for Batman but had no place with Superman or any other DC hero.

Yet, it worked quite well with Wonder Woman, which came closest to emulating the MCU feel.

They should've done Wonder Woman before Batman V Superman, and done a new Batman movie before Batman V Superman.

Not to mention the former makes Batman look like an overtly hostile douchebag.

I mean, yeah, it's definitely possible. It's really going to come down to Ant-Man and the Wasp. If that can make it to $700m, this should happen.

Hope so, since Marvel seems to have a lot of faith in Ant-Man and The Wasp.

That was DC/WB's problem.  They didnt care about actually creating good movies and story build up.  They rushed everything and tried to get a Justice League move out asap to compete with the Avengers movies rather than giving the audience a better understanding of each character with their own movies.  That's why they didnt even have Green Lantern in the Justice League movie.

Not to mention they didn't even bother getting someone good enough to be Joker in Suicide Squad, OR give Joker more than 5 minutes of screen time despite advertising him extensively.

Yea that too!  They just added Joker in as some marketing tool just to lure people in to watch it.

What a horrible Joker.  It's like something a teenager in the 90's would have come up with to make an "edgy" X-treme Joker.  Shirtless with a bunch of tatoos and a grill.  And that God awful laugh.  Jared Leto said he would walk down the streets trying different laughs to see which would get the most reactions.  Unfortunately, he misinterpreted the reactions were from the laugh being scary, not annoying.  Congrats to him, he just found the most annoying laugh.

If they want to reboot this universe with actual good movies, I'd suggest Troy Baker.  He's the right height and build. Plus, he does a great Mark Hamill Joker impression, so we could have the animated Joker in a live action film.

They could also try, say, going back to the look and feel of the Jack Nicholson Joker, because like any good version of Joker he's the stuff of nightmares.

Nobody with any sanity guns somebody down to happy circus music and then makes their girlfriend jump out the window!!

Or shoots their #1 guy for absolutely no reason. 



The DCEU is a laughing joke but i wouldn't be surprised if Aquaman turns out good. They've got a good director at the helms but I'm also worried that WB is going meddle around.
