I haven’t seen Aquaman in theaters–despite it featuring one of my favorite characters, Black Manta–because, as far as the DCEU (or whatever they choose to call it) I’m done.
Under ‘creative genius’ Zach Snyder I felt that there was so little faith in these characters that they were Batman and Superman in name only.
Yet despite that, I still saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Under Walter Hamada, appointed after an executive shakeup at Warner Bros, the DCEU had their biggest box-office hit with Aquaman and supposedly developing a movie based on the Trench.
And as far as I’m concerned, that’s the straw that broke the camel’s back.
You mean to tell me that the home of Batman, Superman and hundreds of thousands of characters is developing a movie based on the Trench!?
I’m done. Like with the case of the Transformers movies (the first two I saw in theaters) which I haven’t paid to see one since Bumblebee.
And I’m not going to pay to see one more DCEU movie till I get a feeling that they have some idea of what they’re doing, that they’re not putting a bunch of DC superheroes on a wall, throwing a dart, then developing a movie based on wherever it lands.
