Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe is still in its early stages, and thus far has suffered from a lack of critical praise, as evident in any comment section on the internet. WB aims to change this with their newest upcoming installments, Wonder Woman and Justice League.
The company has already appointed Geoff Johns as president of DC Entertainment, and Zack Snyder will be taking a break from DC after the release of Justice League.
Charles Roven, another one of DC’s main producers, recently spoke with THR about how Wonder Woman and Justice League will differ from past projects.
“Wonder Woman is an origination story, so the whole dynamic and the plot moves are different than other DC movies. There’s also a great relationship between her and the guy [played by Chris Pine] who crash-lands on her island and is the trigger mechanism for her going back to man’s world.”
He also added:
“We knew we were making a very serious, compelling, driving film with Batman v. Superman. Now the bell has been rung and the whole tone of [Justice League] is lighter.”
Only time will tell if their changes will actually work (or please more fans), as Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. Justice League will follow suit when it releases November 17, 2017.
