10 Problems Fans STILL Won't Admit About The DCEU

Justice League was supposed to be the big win..

After the rockiest of starts, the DCEU is beginning to look in better shape these days. Major successes for Wonder Woman and Aquaman have suggested there is light breaking through the darkness of the early projects and confirmed sequels suggest some sense of continuity for fans to look forward to.

But it would be wrong to think that every issue has been fixed. Fans have reason to be optimistic in certain respects, but there are still problems with Warner Bros' flagship superhero property that need to be addressed.

Of course, nobody is going to sit and revel in possible failure and even the most ardent cynics would no doubt delight in being proven wrong, but we've all been hurt before...

10. Rebooting Suicide Squad Is Idiotic

While the addition of James Gunn to the DCEU with The Suicide Squad is a great move, the confirmation that he's overseeing a reboot rather than a sequel is a mistake. Sure, there will be a lot of fans who are enthusiastic about the prospect of that movie being wiped out of existence, but it ruins Warner Bros' narrative.

When the divisive original was released, Warners leveraged the idea that it was a film made for fans and not critics into an inflated box office return. It absolutely had its fans and crucially there's also a direct spin-off coming and for the studio to now concede that it requires a reboot is a slap in the face for anyone who went to battle for it. That's not how you reward a loyal fanbase.
