    So now both the actors for Batman and Superman (Affleck and Cavill) are out at Warner Bros, but they are keeping on Wonder Woman, Flash, and Aquaman.

    The DC Cinematic Universe has just been such an underwhelming mess from start to finish, I don't see how they can really recover other than doing a whole reboot and start over after these latest rounds of movies. It sounds like they might be going that direction with Supergirl.

      I don't know if they're even capable of having a coherent plan at this point. Weren't/aren't there two different Joker movies, with two different versions of the Joker, in development at the same time? Who does that?

        This is how I feel. I'm glad the animated movies are still great.

      After every failure it would have made sense to reboot the franchise but it keeps going somehow and is probably becoming more and more costly to do so. They need to go back to DC's comic roots and...

      After every failure it would have made sense to reboot the franchise but it keeps going somehow and is probably becoming more and more costly to do so. They need to go back to DC's comic roots and bring back the wonder, fun, excitement, and hopefulness that has generally been DC's strengths and that the animated series do so much better.

      They'll have to wait a decade, too, to sort of let this one cool off. Scrap the old universe, make a new one. They may be trying with Supergirl, but if the last few movies are any indicator, it...

      They may be trying with Supergirl, but if the last few movies are any indicator, it won't work.

    Marvel got where it was with not being able to tap their A listers. I would be down for a Wondy-Flash-Cyborg Trinity founding a sort of Justice League Unlimited setup to get out of the shadow of...

    Marvel got where it was with not being able to tap their A listers. I would be down for a Wondy-Flash-Cyborg Trinity founding a sort of Justice League Unlimited setup to get out of the shadow of Batman and Superman saving the world and doing the darkness.

      I think it's because they didn't use A-listers that it's been a success. Casting is such an important part of shows and way often A-listers are there just to sell tickets rather than because...

      Casting is such an important part of shows and way often A-listers are there just to sell tickets rather than because they're the right fit for the part.

    With 2 members of the trinity gone, how is WB planning to go ahead with future installments? Too much has happened to superman in merely 3 movies, so I think recasting is the most viable option...

    With 2 members of the trinity gone, how is WB planning to go ahead with future installments? Too much has happened to superman in merely 3 movies, so I think recasting is the most viable option right now.
