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?

Everyone was expecting Scoot McNairy to be Flash (I personally thought he’d be Nightwing), and DC really surprised us, this time for the better.
