The DCEU is in trouble. While Warner Bros' lineup of superhero films have delighted hardcore fans, audiences at large have been more ambivalent towards them and critics have been downright hostile. If the DCEU doesn't pull itself out of its critical slump soon, the DC brand may be irreparably tarnished in the eyes of moviegoers. Ticket buyers might decide to skip DCEU movies if they believe that DC is only capable of delivering an inferior product, which could spell doom for the franchise.
Thankfully, the DCEU has a champion waiting in the wings to beat back the onslaught of negative reviews: Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman's amazing trailers and positive buzz have already done a lot to make people forget the negativity surrounding Suicide Squad and BvS. Better still, it seems that Warner Bros has learned some valuable lessons from the critical shellacking of the DCEU and the studio is making an effort to correct some of its mistakes.
If Wonder Woman is a critical success, the fortunes of the DCEU may well turn around - and these signs all point to it being the movie that breaks DC's losing streak.
