10 Lessons DC Needs To Learn From Batman V Superman

Can DC admit their mistakes?

Warner Bros

It's been a rough couple of months for DC. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was supposed to show off what their new cinematic universe had to offer but instead it completely fell flat, leaving DC momentarily clueless about how to proceed.

They seem to have finally composed themselves and Warner Bros has unveiled the brand-new DC Films division. Ostensibly to oversee the development of their future films, it's pretty obvious that this move was in direct response to Batman V Superman's poor reception.

It's a promising sign that the powers-that-be are trying to right the ship but if they think all it will take is some more creative oversight, then they're sorely mistaken. The problems of Batman V Superman were numerous and DC needs to keep proving that they've learned from all of their mistakes.

The good news for fans is that a lot of these problems can actually be fixed for future films. Suicide Squad is probably too close (though early reactions seem to point to success there anyway), but the likes of Wonder Woman and Justice League will be the kind of movies that fans have been expecting from DC.

Batman v Superman was a much-needed wake-up call for the DCEU, but they need more than just a new film division if they want to earn fans' trust back. And hopefully their initial failures will pave the way for a universe we can all be excited about.
