Justice League

So DCU has some serious flaws, but it genuinely seems like they are finally starting to get their feet under them and I'm so, so glad Snyder is done with this franchise. 

One of DCU's biggest mistakes (besides handing the keys to their ferrari to a drunk driver in Snyder) was not giving each of these heroes their proper intro movie. Maybe, maybe we don't need a cyborg movie. But a Batman movie set 10 years earlier. A flash origin story, and an Aquaman movie would have really helped build the hype for Justice League. 

Nonetheless, the past is the past. This movie is a perfect example of rotten tomatoes being a bad indicator of how good a movie is. This is such a vast improvement over B vs. S. It didn't take itself too seriously, while still maintaining a "darker" tone than the MCU, the additions of Aquaman and the Flash really helped with that. 

DC is sitting on a gold mine of great characters, they just need proper direction on how to utilize them. Moving forward I have faith that we will see better and better movies from this franchise.

We've had enough Batman films. The problem with Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman is that they couldn't carry a solo film without Justice League first, I think.

Flash definitely could, Idk about the other two though.

 

they made captain America and Thor solo films before avengers and that worked.

Captain America is more widely known, imo, and Thor is a bigger draw than Aquaman for sure.  He might be on the level with Flash. I prefer DC over Marvel, I'm just thinking in terms of popularity and name recognition. Also the two Hulk films. But Hulk is probably more popular than Cap. They didn't do any prior standalone films before X-Men, proof that it can be done.

The flash definitely has more name recognition and popularity than aquaman or cyborg. 

 

The CW tv show has made flash a huge name and definitely could have had a stand alone film before JL and done well. 

 

Cap and thor weren’t on same level respectively. Ant man, gotg, Thor, are proof that the general audiences are capable of showing out to lesser known comic book movies and them doing well. 

 

Cyborg also has the the added effect of having been seen by millions of kids-young adults from Teen titans for years. 

Aquaman has always been a joke character for years
