Justice League

Justice League‘s disappointing turn out at the box office last weekend could give way to a huge financial blow to Warner Bros. Normally, a film that grossed $94 million would be a cause for celebration. But when you factor in the cost of production and promotional material, a low $94 million is not even enough to cover a fraction of the overall film. In fact, Justice League is already lined up to becoming the lowest grossing DCEU film since the universe was launched back in 2013.

These low numbers could have a negative impact on the future of the DCEU has a whole. More on the story below.

Justice League Banner

Justice League
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, CiarĂ¡n Hinds
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 120
Release Date: November 22, 2017

It’s easy to go into watching Justice League with very low expectations considering how the entire DCEU is filled with bad to god-awful films, with the exception of Wonder Woman. That film was a huge step forward in the right direction for the superhero universe, as it used themes of hope and optimism to do some course correction.

But with Justice League looking like it did in the trailers, one would think that the film would be a step back. However, that isn’t the case. While it is flawed, Justice League has a lighter tone, is funnier, and isn’t as bleak as some of its predecessors. That being said, it is a DCEU film. But at least it is a DCEU film that takes another step in the right direction. Check out my full review below.

Things aren’t looking too good for the DCEU. In just the past few weeks, Ben Affleck took himself out as director of The Batman. The film reportedly went through a script overhaul – despite contrary reports that the studio was happy with Chris Terrio‘s rewrites to Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script. Then there was the rumor that Affleck did not want to play Batman anymore. And now, after Matt Reeves entered talks with the hopes that he would direct, word is coming out that talks have broken down and he is no longer in consideration. More on the story below.

WB and Ben Affleck Reportedly Happy With New ‘The Batman’ Script

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

There’s going to be a day where the sun will always shine on the DCEU. But today is not that day. The Batman is the latest film to be plagued by production problems. It was hit early on with a rumor from Bret Easton Ellis – which he backtracked later on – that WB did not like the script. Then Ben Affleck dropped out as director, after spending weeks seesawing his commitment. But now it has circled back to script issues. Affleck and Geoff Johns had worked on a script before it was handed off to Chris Terrio (Argo). Last week’s news that the studio would like to start the film with a fresh script was worrisome.

Now, Justin Kroll of Variety is offering a different perspective. According to him, WB thinks the script is fine. More on the story below.

In the weeks following Ben Affleck‘s exit as director of The Batman, Warner Bros. has been scrambling to find a replacement. This is the fourth director that has left a DCEU project. Last we heard, Argo writer Chris Terrio, who also did the rewrites for Batman v Superman and worked on the script to Justice League, took a pass on the script that was penned by Affleck and Geoff Johns.

Though Affleck waffled, he has said that he wouldn’t commit to directing unless the script was up to his expectations. Now that he’s out, WB may have to start with a clean slate. More on the story below.

Chris Terrio Wrote A Draft For Ben Affleck's Batman

It’s very typical to see more details to major developments like Ben Affleck taking himself out as the director of The Batman (rumored title). The film suffered a major setback this week, which now forces Warner Bros. to look for another director. This is the fourth time they have to do so in the past two years. The first was for Wonder Woman, while The Flash lost two directors in one year, and this year Affleck took his name out. But for all of its problems, WB remains adamant that they can make the DC Extended Universe just as entertaining as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Still, one has to wonder what happened to make Affleck walk away from directing a superhero film. We will probably hear more about it in the coming weeks or maybe later, but now comes word that Chris Terrio had his hands on the script to The Batman. More on the story below.

Ben Affleck as Batman

In addition to his central role as Batman, Ben Affleck is fast becoming one of the critical creative forces behind the camera in the DC Cinematic Universe. He reportedly performed on-set rewrites of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script and will also be writing the future solo Batman movie (rumored to be titled The Batman) as well as directing the project.

Recently, the multi-talented Affleck earned himself another hat to wear as he has taken on the role of executive producer on next year’s Justice League Part I, in which he is also obviously returning as Batman.
