Treat Batman like James Bond. New actor every few films, bring one out every 3-4 years but just have it as a stand alone film with a new villain and plot (plenty of cool bad guys in Bat comics).

Stop trying to copy MCU shared universe stuff and just cash in on your best character imo.

Idk if Batfleck is even their best character. He was the weakest character in Justice League imo.

I agree on that, but Batman as a character is popular as hell and there are lots of stories they could do. Im happy to see Batfleck walk tbh he seems bored witht the character already.

I don't think he's bored, I think he's just well aware that the DCEU is a sinking ship and he doesn't want to be associated with it. Ben Affleck is a huge comic fan and is probably more invested with the fans than the other actors. The other actors probably just see DCEU as their chance at making some Avenger money but Ben sees it from a fan's perspective. Batman's the role of a life time so to bail on it is a pretty big move and shows that he has no faith in the DCEU.

The more I watch DC movies the more I realize they should stick to cartoons, because the animated stuff actually follows the formula that the live action stuff should be going with.

We need more DC animated movies like The Killing Joke, right?


Better than DCEU

Bring Wonder Woman into the MCU

Get Nolan back for another Batman movie.

Forget about everyone else.

Disney could afford it, and DC could probably use the money.

And yes, bring Nolan back. He's the best thing to happen to live-action Batman in the last 15 years.


Not going to happen. Please take your mouth off the nolan's ****. You and every other Nolan fanboy.

Not my fault that DC was at it's best when it wasn't trying to compete with Marvel. And let's face it, DC will never be on Marvel's level.


I do have to agree. WB should have never tried to one-up MCU by making convoluted, wanna-be-sophisticated films when they should have kept it simple and realize that comic book movies are made for a simple audience. The average moviegoer wants to see jokes and spectacle; basic entertainment. The more I watch DC movies the more I realize they should stick to cartoons, because the animated stuff actually follows the formula that the live action stuff should be going with.


Sophisticated? lol.... MARTHAAAAAAAAA


There are plenty of themes played out in DCEU that would be thought provoking if done correctly (they just weren’t):

- backlash against an omnipotent figure, hero or not
- what the government might do to try to control/contain superpowered beings (in this case a theme actually shared with an MCU movie)
- superheroes as religious figures
- is there a responsibility to share your powers with the world? (MoS and WW)
- what it means to be a leader
- Batman in BvS as an extreme metaphor for police brutality
- Ethical use of science (JL)

The trouble isn’t that nobody goes to comic book movies to think about these issues. Meanwhile MCU understands that these themes get in the way of the superhero movie experience and for the most part leaves this s*** out.
