    2012's Total Recall a deboot?
    I'm sorry, but 1990's flick was an unbearable fucking cringefest. Schwarzenegger alone made that film watchable but take him out, ignore the fact that it's based on a story from one of the biggest names in speculative fiction, and the movie is garbage.
    I won't pretend the reboot stands alongside the likes of Blade Runner and A Space Odyssey. The story and characters were basic, but at least there was adequate worldbuilding, decent visual effects, and entertaining fucking action! That movie has some really creative set pieces and sequences to go with them. Certainly a cut above the RoboCop and Blade Runner reboots.

    When we have to share the audience with morons that want everything to taste like fucking cotton candy ice cream, is no surprise when the producers of pistachio ice cream have to close down their business, even if their flavour is superior. Long live Snyder's unappreciated vision!

    I believe they should of done the dceu like this:

    man of steel - superman - 2013
    the amazonian warrior - wonderwoman - 2014
    the last son of krypton - superman 2 - 2015
    the dc trinity - superman, wonderwoman and batman debut - 2016

    (then when the top characters are established that's when you put out 2/3 movies per year)

    throne of atlantis - aquaman & shazam- 2017
    the lantern corps - green lantern & the titans - 2018
    the caped crusader - batman & doomsday - superman3 - 2019

    ( you can have your sequels or other solo films whether villain or hero within 2020 to 2022)

    justice league pt 1 : injustice - 2022
    justice league pt 2 - 2023

    ( makes justice league be a 2 parter and have it come out in 2023 because you've set up a universe and the big pay off will be within a decade.

    Saw Batman v Superman on TV one night and I have to agree, it took too long to do anything, the final fight was only ok and it refused to fucking end.

    and now were getting a handful of Joker backstory movies all told from different points of view... just what we need, the most evil character in comic history being humanized and sympathized, hes so much better when hes just evil, and the challenge is Batman convincing himself not to kill him this time after joker blew up another orphanage full of kids. DC needs to stick to animation to tell their stories, its the only thing their kind of good at.

    I did like DCEU, especially Man of Steel and Wonder Woman up until the abysmal Batman v Superman and JLA, then it all just tanked. DCEU was throwing in shit tons of plot and characters that could've easily had the Marvel treatment and been carefully crafted over several movies in so many number of years. Honestly, Marvel's world building at this point is fucking bang on and aside from a few hiccups (personally I disliked Norton Hulk and Thor Dark World), the Marvel gravy train just keeps on chugging.
    I would've settled for a decade long story arc, no competing with Marvel as such and have all solo outings before the big JLA crossover. They're better off scrapping everything and starting again which appears to be the case with this Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie which, admittedly, looks pretty awesome.

    I don’t read comics but what’s going on with ComicsGate is pretty fucking crazy. I keep up with it through Diversity and Comics.
    Also, Marvel makes pretty good movies, but the humor they inject at every turn is so sooo bad and takes me out of the movie momentarily. My GF can’t stand the movies bc of the corny jokes.

    My idea for a Justice League movie--go LOTR route and make it a trilogy. Plenty of time to introduce characters, plenty of time to unfold a good plot and add all the easter eggs you want for the next gajillion movies you have planned.

    WB have totally shit the bed with the DCEU. Batman too old with no backstory by the time the JL, comes to prominence, Superman killing Zod, Death of Superman and Doomsday too early. To reboot would undo WW and (potentially) Aquaman's positivity. Same company fucked up Suicide Squad too. Whole thing is screwed before it's started properly. Thing is, Man of Steel was actually OK as a film and a launch point.

    Green Lantern was an okay film... It's biggest issue was it came out around the same time as Captain America, which was MILES better.

    If there is one thing Justice Leage got right, it was the ending, or at least the post-credit ending. They hinted at the Injustice League, or the Legion of Doom or whatever they're going to call themselves. This means that since the folks at Warner suck at universe building, all they have to do is introduce a new villain in the solo films and then give some sort of hint at the end of each movie that the villain might form an alliance with Lex Luthor and you already have a premise for a Justice League 2. This is good because it means the solo films don't have to focus too much on universe building while still maintaining a clear continuity that allows all these heroes and villains to eventually meet one another. In fact, if they were to make a Justice League movie down the road and just call it "Justice League vs the Legion of Doom", that alone will get people in the theaters.

    Nah, I liked Batman V Superman more than any of that bland Marvel tripe they've been shoveling out since after the first Xmen movie. Was Batman V Superman perfect? No way, but far more interesting than any of that Marvel stuff everyone have been raving about for 15+ years by now.
    Ultimately though, it's all shit for kids.

    The sad fact is, the DCAU did lot of the concepts that the DCEU tried to do with style. Batman vs. Superman? The World's Finest movie. Justice League? They have two TV shows based on it. Point being, DC animated films and TV shows did things better than their live-action counterparts. Hell, you want a Justice League movie? Try Crisis on Two Earths. Two teams of super-beings battling over the fate of two universes. And the Lex Luthor in that movie actually looks, acts, and sounds like a real grown man. THAT is how you make quality DC content: good character buildup, interesting stories, and more depth than anything the fun but shallow Marvel movies can give.

    Cavill's going to go work on a Witcher series as Geralt of Rivia. He doesn't need DC anymore. He's big enough of a star.

    It’s amazing how people are easily conned, BvS made double its investment thanks to China, same with JL, so much for ‘Flop’, what happened was that Fandango bought out ‘aint it cool’ and ‘Rotten Tomato’s, used it as a Skin for its > Social Media < platform, ‘Rotten Tomato’s demanded exclusives and that WB (whom ironically own stock in Fandango) whom refused to buy effectively ‘Likes’, akin to a Facebook Post, suffered Fandango’s Wrath, before BvS or JL had respectively had scripts typed, contracts inked through and through, and any preproduction started, Fandango ran a hate campaign for solid two years, they trashed what hadn’t even been made.
    Which is an interesting precedent, before you’ve even started making a movie, if you haven’t bought off the social media cartels, you’re movies gonna get fucked over before it’s even done and out at the multiplexes

    Zack Snyder is a terrible director just shy of Michael Bay. And I feel Henry Cavill could have been good in the role had he been provided a competantly written script, a even moderately good director, a studio that gave a shit! And the motivation to actually put effort into the role, he may have been able to be a memorable superman.
