EDITORIAL: Is the DC Cinematic Universe in Trouble?

Preface

  • Hey guys!
  • So in the past few months, we’ve heard a LOT about this DC Cinematic Universe, especially after the release of Batman v. Superman.
  • I was actually a fan of Batman v. Superman, there were certainly things about it that didn’t work, but overall I thought it was pretty cool and a solid start to the universe.
  • That being said, I was super excited for Suicide Squad and The Flash and Justice League…
  • But in the past month, even just this past week, there’s been a lot of news that makes me wonder: is the DC Cinematic Universe in Trouble?
  • I think the answer is yes.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice – Spoiler-Filled Thoughts

Here are my more in-depth thoughts on March’s most critically-controversial movie!!

Batman v. Superman “Unmasking” Clip Revealed!

Scene Review

  • Woo that was intense!
  • Was this as good as the trailer that came out of Comic Con? No.
  • Was this still a very tense, very well built-up scene from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? Yes.
  • That’s probably my favorite part is that it isn’t even a trailer, it’s a 50-second TV spot.
  • I’m told that there is a new trailer dropping in a couple of days, but ultimately I thought this was a really well done clip that I enjoyed a lot.
  • I liked seeing a tense, well-shot SCENE from the movie.
  • I’m curious especially as to who the other chained-up prisoners are in the cell with Bruce, and of course how that unmasking scene ends.
  • But check out the clip for yourselves here and comment your thoughts down below!

Batman v. Superman Comic-Con Trailer Review

Preface

  • Okay, so last year when the 30 second teaser for this movie dropped at Comic-Con, I was like “yeah that looks pretty cool. Can’t wait to see more.”
  • Then earlier this year when the first teaser dropped, I was like “ehh, it looks really flashy and kinda sloppily thrown together… The next one had better impress be awesome.”
  • And folks, I can successfully tell you that this trailer not only met, not only surpassed, but obliterated my expectations.
  • I can now say I am 100% on board for Batman v. Superman.
  • THIS TRAILER WAS SO COOL!
