So by now, I’ll assume you’ve either seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or you’ve at least heard about the critical reception it’s received, right? Well, let’s just say, the critics weren’t too kind to the film, and it’d be surprising if the film reached a billion at the box office at this rate. So, rumors ran rampant over the past few weeks about whether or not Justice League was going to be postponed or whether Zack Snyder would be removed. Well, none of that is happening, but according to an article by Variety’s Kristopher Tapley, it seems like some higher executives at Warner Bros. might be taking a more hands on approach. Think something along the lines of a “Kevin Feige” but for DC, a central figure that helps keep the story in check. Kristopher writes:
I’m told Jon Berg and and Time-Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes are taking more of a hands-on approach now, paying closer attention to overarching story concerns, but someone well versed in both production and DC’s minutiae is what’s needed.
He also goes on to say that Justice League will be a “crowd pleaser.” Well, that’s good news. While, I enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I will agree that something needs to be changed in order for the DCEU to thrive. We’ve also read reports that Justice League will be lighter and more fun than Batman v Superman was, and honestly, I’m all for that. Let us know what you think of this. Are you ok with Warner Bros. stepping in to oversee the overall narrative with the DCEU?
Justice League will begin production this coming Monday starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/ Cyborg, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/Flash, Amber Heard as Mera, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
