Will Batflek even be made at this point? If WW and Justice League bomb - which they can still very much do - DC might shutter the project entirely.
I'm very confident in the Batflek movie, since Affleck is been given so much creative control. But I'm not confident in how long it will take to get there. And it's not going to save the DCEU, just that version of that character.
I kind of disagree.
DC already has marked out it's quality standard. Suicide Squad was supposed to be what you're hoping Wonder Woman to be. They trashed that movie, and now every DC movie will be good...for a DC movie. They want to reach Marvel critical acclaim and box office numbers, and they just can't, because of the quality they are right now. And until they do, corporate will mess with the movies.
Justice League is already doomed to fail because Snyder just fundamentally doesn't get the characters. Geoff Johns? He's a publicity stunt at best to give fans hope to see the next movie. Because that's all Warner has: the hope that maybe, just maybe, the films might be better. That's how they get their tickets bought opening night.
DC fans were saying this with BvS's bad reviews. Well, at least Suicide Squad can't be bad, right? And they'll say that with Wonder Woman, and with Justice League, and with every other movie going forward.
Warner isn't as hands off as Disney is. That's going to cost them.
