Last week was about the fifth time I’ve heard that there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development, and it’s very simple and direct and to the point.
Welp, this is probably going to end as bad as the last Superman film.
What’s sad is that probably the best part of Man of Steel is the scene at the end where Supes chit-chats with the military and they crack some mediocre jokes. It feels so out of place compared to the rest of the movie because it’s somewhat lighthearted and actually feels like a scene that belongs in a Superman film. If the rest of Man of Steel had been like that scene it… wouldn’t have been great, but it would have been decent, probably.
If the rest of DC’s films are going to be like the other 99% of Man of Steel then I’m going to give up on them right now. If this rumored policy is true, then my theory is that DC is doing it partly so that they can be contrarian to Marvel, whose movies have lots of humor.Source: panicvision
