Acting like DC had planned a JLA film since the '89 Batman film, hell why not go back as far as 1978 when the first Superman film come out? Superman tv show have been on since he 50's and Batmans since the 60's, DC just never had plans to create a unified world til like maybe a decade or so ago and back then when they started talking about a Batman & Superman film, it just went no where and they tried to just make it to a single hero films but they ended up with Nolans Begins.
And they rebooted Batman and Superman once.
Why does DC get all this crap on them, first people keep saying they keep making bad Superman films as if they make them every other year? Supeman IV and Returns (which wasn't a reboot but a continuation of Donners Superman) were 19 years apart and they eventually rebooted 7 years later.
Now they keep rebooting their films when Batman was just rebooted in Begins and no other time? They aren't even rebooting Batman in the Superman vs Batman film, Batman just exist already. You aren't going to see another origins story.
Seriously, people just want to crap on DC as much as possible.
Nah. I was a HUGE Batman fan back in the day and I'm not interested in just crapping on DC.
Superman Returns might as well have been a reboot. It's supposed to take place after Superman II, but ignore Superman III and IV?
That's just dumb. And you might as well say that after Batman Returns, the next movie was a reboot. Batman Forever was garbage. Let's be honest. It didn't even feel like the same universe as the first two.
I'm not saying that DC was supposed to have this huge plan mapped out for a universe, but why did they keep ******* with what was working? Batman (1989) and Batman Returns were GREAT movies. If they had followed that formula, one that established a great version of Batman and kept making movies that flowed from that universe, then at this point the progression into a team of characters would have been natural. Now it just feels forced and to play catch up to Marvel.
Now all of a sudden they're dumping all of these characters into one movie? When Marvel took time to develop this universe? DC had all the time in the world. It's rushed and even thought it may work out, given their track record for making dumb decisions to follow up a good one, chances are, their big movie Superman/Batman will be crap too.
Of course it'll do numbers, but where will it leave the story? And Affleck has signed on for multiple movies. So if this one is crap it's just gonna take them farther off track. Because they'll have to wait until this run is over to address the issues and... reboot.
I guess I'm just disappointed in DC. This is coming from a man that wanted to be Batman as a kid after seeing the movie. I was even working on drawings of how to make my grappling hook gun.
