It seems that finally Zach Snyder has fallen out of favor at Warner Bros, though my question is why it took so long to happen. Keep in mind while he’s overseen produced no flops while the creative force behind the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) though what he has done was produce three movies–Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad–that were extremely devisive as far as the perceptions of critics and movie goers.
You’ll notice that I didn’t include Wonder Woman, the best received DCEU movie (and on track to being the most profitable) yet? That’s no accident. Snyder’s star has been in it’s descendecy for quite awhile, and Wonder Woman was the first movie produced with a new management team in place.
And the worse thing is that I don’t necessarily blame Snyder. Warner Bros management (at the time) should have taken his ideas for a murderous Batman and an apathetic Superman and thrown them onto the Island of Really Ill-Conceived Ideas where they belonged, as opposed to entertaining them as as they did.
