You pretty much see the good parts of the movie in some of the trailers. The reviews I've read have been largely negative concerning plot and the action. People probably only went to see what the hype was about. Doubt it will maintain the momentum. The doom and gloom tone just doesn't sit well with the origins of the characters. I'll wait to spend the twenty dollars on the "director's cut". The next animated DC movie, Justice League vs Teen Titans will be out soon.
It looks like they have picked an actor to play Green Lantern. Articles saying that Tyrese Gibson will be Green Lantern. Another article says that the Aquaman movie will be "lighter" in tone compared to Batman v Superman.
LOL, maybe they'll finally figure out everything doesn't need to be dark all the damn time or that they don't need to make DC's signature that it's all dark. That works well for Batman, but not for many others.
I've read the plot synopsis because I honestly just don't care anymore, and it sounds even more badly-written than the stuff the trailers had already spoiled. I mean, it sounded comic-book-y, but not in a good way. I also heard the worldwide opening is including a few countries some other opening weekend record-breakers didn't have during their first few weeks, so it didn't beat any major record-holders in sheer volume, so their load is essentially blown. I don't doubt it'll come close to 1 billion globally (like within 100 million) but I'll be very surprised if it actually meets or exceeds it. It also sounds like this movie, like Iron Man 3, could teach a clinic in mistakes that should be learned from. I'll try to compile a checklist but I must find a way to see it for free first...
That being said, I have no idea yet how this will bode for Suicide Squad, which seems like it would be more at home in the dark tone DC is striving for, at least compared to Superman and Wonder Woman. Audiences seem to be more favorable than critics (which is different than the unanimous reaction to Fant4stic being negative) so perhaps the DCEU will maintain a certain momentum where it counts, i.e. in box office returns since if general viewers appreciate it more than reviewers then they'll continue seeing the films regardless of poor critical reception.
One has to wonder how the director's/extended cut will change things, since the consensus among reviewers seems to be that the film was 20-30 minutes too long as it is (which kind of surprises me since that's supposed to be how long these epic ensemble superhero films usually are) and if adding more to it will improve the overall experience. Time will tell, I suppose. I just wish both the first and second entries into DC's united filmverse didn't feel like they needed a 'do-over'.
