What Does Justice League Mean for DC?

Jaeden Andrade

The newest DC movie Justice League came out on Friday, November 17th, and there have been some major tone changes from what we’ve been recently been used to from DC. So when people think of DC comics nowadays the first thing that pops into their head isn’t the super friends. It’s basically the opposite.

unnamedIf you think that the DC universe is just super dark and edgy then well, you’re right. This can be seen In all DCEU movies even the smash hit Wonder Woman as it deals with concepts likeAre humans really worth saving?” And “why do humans create war even when the god of war is dead?”. Since the release of DC’s newest movie it seems like they aren’t going as dark and gritty. This may be because the director who may have made this universe as dark as it was had to leave the movie for personal reasons.

So the question was, “How are we supposed to finish this movie without a director?”, so obviously they got a director, Joss Whedon, the director of The Avengers. So with the new addition of this director, he’s obviously going to change some of the movie, right? He did and I don’t know about you guys but I could smell Joss whedon all over many scenes. He has a scent that I learned since the first time that I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I picked it up again during The Avengers. If some of you have no idea what I’m talking about or just think that I’ve lost it then you’re either right or he has a specific jokes that are easy to pick up on. I’m not gonna name all of them in this article because I’ve only seen Justice League once and that was almost a month ago but trust me, watch Batman V. Superman then Justice League and you will pick up on some of what I’m talking about.

So what does this mean for the future of the DCEU?  Are we going to see Batman cracking jokes when he has to save some hostages from the Joker? or Darkseid saying “With the benefit of hindsight” before getting punched by Superman into a boom tube? To be quite honest I don’t think that they will.

I believe that In the future of the DCEU they will keep the personalities character based instead of everyone being as brooding as Batman. That is of course if they listen to many of the fans. So hopefully in movies like Shazam, they don’t have him being super depressed because he is literally a 12 year old kid. At the end of the day it’s all up to DC how closely they want to adapt characters from the comic books, If you want more more evidence then just watch Arrow, He is nothing like Green Arrow in the comics but he is a lot like the brooding bat that we all know.
