Funny, I heard pretty much the same thing (close enough anyway) about BvS. Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman was STILL made and the DCEU is STILL going, refusing to die.

Here's hoping the Justice League is a box office bomb along with the Flash movie that insists on making a movie about THE worst Flash storyline to ever hit the shelves.

But hey, if the Flash movie is made and Flashpoint is used to reboot the entire DC universe, maybe that's a good thing IF they recast everyone and end up making better movies as a result. Otherwise, it's not worth the effort.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

Well Wonder Woman was a success though (i.e. it made money). That's why the DCEU is still going. I imagine if that one had also flopped they might have given up. But Wonder Woman's success encouraged them to keep going. So far they've had one hit and Marvel has had several. They're hoping for a second hit.

Oddly enough the movie I've really been waiting for is Shazam. I feel like that's where the next hit is. We just have to deal with these other crappier movies until we get there.

Yeah it kinda retconned all those silver age Flash stories involving Barry's parents. And gave Barry some Spider-Man like drama for his origin. One of the great things about Barry's old origin was that he didn't have any tragedy driven origin and he was just a well adjusted guy. Silver age Barry didn't mope like TV Barry and he didn't seem like he had Asperger's like movie Barry.
