Ya someone needs to buy dc from them at the minimum. A f**king Black Adam movie is coming too. Unbelievable. Suicide squad at best should have been a tv show. A properly planned dceu would have blown mcu away but they keep ruining it. Two suicide squad movies :lol: What's next? Booster gold movie? There is no point in making your B or Z listers popular if you keep screwing up A listers. All good stories involve A listers anyways.

The good news is Discovery bought WB and they really want to make Superman popular again. Let's see.

Batman, Uncharted, latest Bond movie, Dune, Enchanto, Jungle Cruise, GI Joe, etc. all of them bombed. F9 and Kong vs Godzilla are the only two movies which succeeded to some extent. Even those earned much less than what they would have earned in a normal, pre-pandemic situation. Point is that almost all the Hollywood movies that have released in China have earned much less than they would have ideally earned pre pandemic

Batman has historically never made a lot of money in China. The rest of them are pandemic movies bruh. Not to mention, the theatres in Shanghai, the biggest market in China was going through a lock down due to COVID. Things haven't gotten back to normal there yet. The new change is China just not allowing big Disney movies and movies like Top Gun Maverick to play there. Not the movies not making enough money.

If WB had thought the DC universe properly we could have had Justice league movies covering stories like Tower of Babel, Identity crisis etc. Darkseid, Brainiac would have been featured too. It's baffling decision making from them. At least animated universe was way better.

The executives didn't care about any grand vision. They refused to delay Justice League because they didn't want to lose their bonuses.

Hollywood movies are not making enough money there, no matter what the reason. Whatever movie released there, earned less than what they would have earned otherwise. During COVID, native Chinese movies earned, its not like movies stopped earning there

Quite frankly, WB is the worst in the movie business IMO. I would not be surprised if the only reason they are still alive is to prop up Disney as not having a monopoly in the industry. They've ruined a lot of legendary franchises and studios (New Line Cinema and ruining The Hobbit is one I will not forgive them for). Heck, their 4k Blu Rays are also of piss poor shoddy quality, that spoils very fast. Overall, at this point WB is "Just Existing". They have no passion, talent or creativity left IMO.

Batman, Suicide Squad and Joker are easily some of the best superhero movies out there. Peacemaker is by far on of the most fun shows in recent years too. Watchmen is f**king amazing as well. 

 

Edit: Compare that with Disney just busting out random sh*t every month. Most of the movies and shows have nothing new to offer. Doing 1:1 remakes of animated movies, some template based superhero movies and making mediocre shows on every Star Wars character.

2007 called, they want their superhero movie back. :lol: Looks mid and Rock is playing himself again.

Sadly. The CGI looked kind of meh as well, not just in quality but also art wise, which was disappointing since that was something DC movies usually excel at.

Critics are ripping Jurassic World Dominion apart. It's apparently an overlong, boring, and bloated mess.

I probably should've waited for reviews before booking tickets :|
