Okay, now that I’ve managed to scare any obnoxious nerds who wandered by to the comment section to angry rant about how I am a “marvelcuck” or something related to “cucks,” let’s talk about why the DC cinematic universe is the single worst thing DC has ever done.
Keep in mind that’s a real fucking long list.
With three films now released, there’s a lot of discussion in how DC’s brave experi-excuse me, I mean pathetic rip-off movie series has fared. Money wise, they aren’t doing Marvel gangbusters, but doing damn well by all accounts, or at least surviving despite under-performance. Critically, though…
To say these movies are disliked is like saying Donald Trump has the hands of an ant. There’s a lot to unpack, and a lot has been said, but as a comic fan myself, I’d like to unpack why these films don’t actually seem to engage audiences as well as they could, with exception to a certain terrible, terrible audience no artist should ever want. No matter how much WB tries to get the next few films in a more pleasing state for the masses, there’s some problems they desperately need to address first, or else we’ll have another Suicide Squad chop job on our hands.
