After the critically bashing Warner Bros. and DC Comics' last two superhero films took (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) you’d be forgiven for assuming there’s been some kind of witch hunt/media bias towards the franchise. But the truth is there isn’t, we want the DCEU films to do well, we want them to have the same love and success as the Marvel films but when something's not up to par then you’ve got to call it for what it is. It seems like Warner Bros. have at least admitted to themselves, as well as the public, that their previous offerings could have been better.
According to Variety, Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes admitted that "We do think there’s a little room for improvement. We can do a little bit better on the creative." to investors at Q&A to investors.
He went on to point out that:
"The DC Comics characters have a little more lightness in them than maybe what you saw in those movies, so we’re thinking about that. The strategy worked. The execution did deliver what we wanted to do. We’re right on course or better. The main thing was to launch DC and reinvigorate it with the fan base. The reboot of Batman with Ben Affleck was a big success."
Despite the critical setbacks Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad did amazing box office numbers and from the trailers we’ve seen for 2017’s Wonder Woman and Justice League, there’s still a chance for the DCEU to be critical success too.
