Batman V Superman: 10 Positives For The Future Of The DCEU

A few rays of hope from a gloomy failure.

Warner Bros/Total Film

Batman V Superman is not a very good movie. I think we can all agree on that. 

Exactly how not very good seems to vary from 'well, that was a bit of a disappointment' to 'oh God, no, make it stop!' but not very good it assuredly is. So, that throws a bit of a spanner in the works for the nascent DC Extended Universe, then?

Well, not necessarily. Batman V Superman may fail at what it sets out to do, but that doesn't mean that it's completely lacking in interesting plot threads, concepts, and characters, which could yet translate into something that actually works.

With David Ayer's Suicide Squad in post-production, Patty Jenkins currently filming Wonder Woman, and the two Justice League movies all set to go, there is no chance of Warner Bros. pulling the plug on the whole ambitious enterprise. All we can do now, then, is look for the positives in Batman V Superman and hope that they may point to a brighter future for DC.

This article contains spoilers for Batman V Superman (of course).
