DCEU is out with its latest movie, Justice League. It is the answer to MCU’s Avengers.
MCU has been building the hype for a decade, and when they finally came out with the movie Avengers, moviegoers went crazy.
For the first time in the history of cinema, something so large and incredible was done.
It started the trend of mega franchise.
Against all the odds, the movie managed to not only gain critical attention but it managed to become one of the biggest financial successes of all time.
It inspired a lot of studios to set out on a similar path and start their own mega franchise.
DCEU initiated as a way to give competition to MCU.
DC is home to some of the most popular comic book characters of all time like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
So far, DCEU has failed to achieve the same level of success as that of Marvel movies, except for Wonder Woman.
DCEU’s much anticipated and awaited movie Justice League finally hit the theaters, but it failed to live up to the hype.
What is DCEU is doing wrong?
DC comics came up with the whole idea of joint superhero team a long before Marvel comics did.
Despite DC had rights to their major superheroes, they didn’t use them. Only Superman and Batman movies were produced.
Marvel characters didn’t get much attention until Sam Raimi’s Spiderman trilogy, and Blade series.
Marvel was on the verge of bankruptcy, and they had to sell the rights to some of the characters to other studios. Unfortunately, MCU do not have the rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four or Deadpool.
So our dream to see Wolverine fighting Hulk has to wait a little longer.
Today everything DCEU is doing, fans are comparing it to MCU.
People compared it to MCU’s Avengers.
MCU spent a decade to build the hype for the movie.
When Avengers was out, people were familiar with lesser-known Marvel heroes like Thor.
On the other hand, people had no idea who Cyborg or Aquaman are.
People are going to compare the movie to the already established one.
Overuse of CGI
The movie faced a lot of problems during the production.
Zack Snyder had to leave during the middle of the production, and Joss Whedon took the control.
Joss Whedon was the chief architect behind the success of Avengers.
You can clearly see the difference between the Zack’s vision and Whedon’s vision.
The movie relied heavily on the use of special effects, and it overdid it at some points.
Was it a disaster?
Not at all.
The movie had problems, but it was far from being a disaster.
It was fun.
It had a lighter tone from BvS, and it introduced light humor.
Flash and Wonder woman were portrayed brilliantly by Ezra Miller and Gal Gadot respectively.
It borrows the style that the animated series had.
Justice League couldn’t have possibly satisfied each and every individual.
It was highly awaited and people had a lot of expectations.
It was deemed to disappoint few fans.
Critics failed to see the soul in the movie, while casual moviegoers had fun.
So if you need to watch something nice and goofy, check it out.
