it sucks because they're trying to play the catch-up game too hard with marvel
by the time the CU even begun, marvel's CU was already well-established with like 32 movies, two of which involved all of the heroes banded together, and already made like 300 trillion dollars altogether or something ridiculous
so instead of flooding the market with even more superhero movies (which we should be thankful for) they've only subjected us to a few, but in doing so, the overall pacing of the franchise suffers because we haven't been given as much of a chance to become attached to literally any of DC's heroes (except wonder woman i guess), so none of the movies have had a real sense of chutzpah or gravitas to them because nobody gives a fuck
also zack snyder is a hack and put the franchise to an early grave with the piece of shit that was man of steel, which was bad because it tried to do for superman what chris nolan did for batman, and as it turns out, you just can't do that very well
suicide squad was also doomed to fail because it's just a really fucking stupid premise
every movie has to have a big epic fight at the end in order to make the average shithead consumer feel like they got their money's worth, because there was a big dumb fight with lots of action and explosions therefore it was an "entertaining and fun ride"
they're just over-inflated movies made by giant studios and factories specifically engineered to paint by the numbers and appeal to as many people as possible while simultaneously trying to compete with another company who's doing the same thing, but has had a decade-long headstart, and that's just not an equation that could ever lead to anything called "success"
well okay the movies make lots of money so i guess that means they're successful, but they're soulless and inartistic and nobody likes them and that's what i mean
