Well if they advertise it as WW being in control then it could do better, of course they were probably stupid and put Batman front in center.

So BvS which came out before the wildly successful suicide squad and Wonder Woman is going to scare people away from justice league? Nah.

First Snyder’s take has been pretty grimdark and shoddy. Second he had a huge tragedy and couldn’t finish JL. Third Whedon gave us the best avengers and very well could give us what most DC movies have been missing, decent dialogue. That’s just my opinion but criticizing WB for getting someone else is crazy pills.

I remember all the "If JJ Abrams can do both Star Trek and Star Wars, then Joss Whedon can do both Avengers and Justice League" comments being thrown around way back when. Interesting to see it actually come to fruition, though it took a really unfortunate monkey's paw to get there.

I'm in Houston, reasonably follow BJK stuff, was 10 minutes from a theater that showing it, don't watch TV so never once saw a ad for either. Actually thought BotS was coming out last week instead

Lol I was being facetious, I have been lost the past few weeks as well considering it’s mostly been small films since IT.

It was interesting concept tbh. They could have done some great things with it, but they a bad horror movie instead.

If this was true, WW would have not destroyed the summer like it did.

WB selling the film like a Wonder Woman sequel with Batman ensures that it's going to clean up as long as the RT stays above 60%

I looked up what she worked on and remembering back to when I read all of that, it wasn't all that bad.

Like it's bad that she took Nightwing from being the light of the Bat family and made him even more broody and terrible than Bruce, but it... um...

forreal I can't even come up with a good thing on a macro level we got out of it. We didn't even get a good finale with Blockbuster, instead we had that chick shoot him and then rape Dick

Wonder Woman was its own thing, Justice League is a direct followup to a movie people didn't like. Wonder Woman was also good. I guess if Justice League is good then it can clean up but, like, that's a big if.

Nah I'm thinking most people are gonna see JL as a follow-up to WW, especially with the trailers framing it that way by showing Themyscria.

Besides, the general audience doesn't hold grudges like that. They're not GAF.

And I don't even think JL needs to be "good" to do well, it just needs to be entertaining.

What ultimately did BvS in was that it was boring. The average Joe doesn't really care about half-baked motivations or Batman shooting missiles at dudes.

I'm not too sure what to expect from JL right now.

If we get a movie with Snyder's action and Whedon makes whatever story he had more coherent and inserts some well-needed humour here and there without going full AoU, I think the movie will be good and entertaining enough to break a billion. Even if it's tonally inconsistent overall.

I'm waiting for the next trailer to get a better idea of what to expect.

All JL needs to do is be okay with a batshit awesome third act. That's what Avengers and JW did. All JL needs is Superman to return st the right and moment and pull a "world of cardboard" speech on Steppenwolf and they're all good.

That speech worked because Superman was a good character already and had been building to it for years

There's something about Joss that makes Ahasverus super irrational.

Like the Deadline article doesn't really contradict anything that was said. We knew Joss was bought on to assist in rewriting scenes for JL before Zack stepped down. It was announced back then too.

It'll be glorious. Whedon saved it! This is Snyder's movie! Wonder Woman saved it! Every opinion, every conclusion, coming together the moment the review embargo lifts.
