I really wanted there to be a DCEU in the cinema. I really wanted to see it. What I didn’t want was Zach Snyder’s vision. I think Snyder pretty much killed the Hope’s of a DCEU. He wanted to make a Cinematic Universe out of what was, at best, an Elseworlds story.
He wanted a Dark Superman, a more murderous Batman, to him that was interesting.
To me it wasn’t.
Now we have 2 “Post Snyder” films. Wonder Woman was still part of the Snyder era.
Aquaman - More successful than all of the Snyder films combined.
Shazam - Getting rave reviews from pretty much everyone.
Do you think that this duo of good superheroes films that are colorful, funny, and action packed could save the DCEU? Could it get us a Superman reboot without all of the angst?
I would give anything to see that.
How about you?
