When it was first confirmed that Warner Bros. and DC were going to start bringing together their best superheroes, in a bid to rival what has been happening with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there were millions of excited comic book fans around the world. Unfortunately though, the DC Extended Universe has had little to shout about, with a string of poor movies, leading to the fans becoming very concerned for the future of the universe.
That has not deterred them though, as we are preparing for a string of new DC movies over the coming years, although it seems that we should prepare ourselves for the worst, that is if the recent rumours are to be believed. While we were all very excited for the Justice League movie, it has been claimed that the project is a complete mess and that things are not running smoothly. Add to that the fact that Zack Snyder is regularly slated by comic book movie fans, and it is hard to see how things can turn around.
However, there might just be a bit of hope for the DC Extended Universe, in the form of arguably their biggest and most popular character to grace the big screen. Ben Affleck has already stated that he will do everything in his power to make sure that his The Batman movie is exactly what it should be and what the fans deserve, which has given us some much-needed optimism for the future of the DCEU.
With that said though, we might have to accept that we are going to get a few more poor movies in the DCEU, before they finally start to get things right and we finally start to get the comic book movies that we all deserve. Watch this space!
