I just want the movie to happen at all at this point.

Give me an Arkham-esque Batman movie and you've got a winner!!

It's official!

Cautiously optimistic about this though. After Nolan's trilogy, the pressure is certainly on. Given DCCU's recent track record, let's just hope Reeves sticks to the project til the very end.

New Batman director, perhaps?

BTW, no matter who they pick to helm this film (nor how good he is), the fact that Affleck said specifically "if the script is not good, I'm not gonna do it" keeps a bad taste in my mouth.
What if the script is half-assed, and they're only moving forward without Affleck as the director, just so they can make the movie in time for their "schedule"?

Oh man... I want this to be good so badly! :(

I can see this happening. Even if Affleck hated the script, he's contractually obliged to continue the role. He may only be staying on as the character because he has too.

Articles like this you mean? When somebody announced that Damian would lead the Teen Titans in Rebirth before Dc confirmed it I think people also just called it clickbait I guess we´ll just have to wait and see.

Yep, those are the ones. I'm really hopeful for Wonder Woman granted the DCEU's past. I just wish these news sites would cut them a brake from time to time.

Umberto Gonzalez is renown for making up rumours then going on tyrants when he's proven wrong.

What clickbait media sites? The DCEU has done enough on its own to tarnish its repuation.

Very true, but there are definitely 'news' sites out there who simply start rumours for shares and views. They tried to say Affleck was leaving the Batman role at one point and Affleck himself said it was ridiculous. Also, there are the sites claiming they have an inside source confirming Wonder Woman is trash.

They said Warner is interested in getting Matt Reeves for the job. Considering how good "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" was, and how good "War For The Planet Of The Apes" looks, I'd be fine with that.


So they´ll change the script, too? Somehow I was suspecting that. Doesn´t sound as alarming as I first thought, though...

Hm, maybe that makes it easier for him to give a good performance.
It would have been hard to direct and act in a movie like this.

But of course this makes people worried all over again...we will see where this goes.

They need a Miller or a Villeneuve to regain peoples trust. Me personally however am going forward with major caution. Like I said, my prediction is that Wonder Women is going to be a complete mess and at that point I doubt I will even care anymore.

I just hope I'm wrong, I want to go into Justice League expecting great things but right now I can only expect the worst. I'm sure they will release great trailers like they always do and it will make it look like the film is going to satisfy all my nerdy desires. But I was hyped beyond belief for BVS and was extremely crushed by it in the end. Justice League is going to have to stand on its own merits when I see it in the theatre. I don't have many hopes for it right now and I doubt I will going in as well.

I'm not surprised in the slightest. Its so clear that Affleck bit off more than he can chew. He's stated that BvS was the biggest production he's ever done, so for him to take on the role of actor/producer/writer/director of Batman in 2018 is obvious it would be too much (for anyone for that matter). I really don't blame him for wanting to focus on one role instead of taking on all.

I think its clear he was already resenting the film though. He's expressed his frustration with Live By Midnight tanking with his fans only ever talking about Batman, and he's called out clickbait media sites who have been determined to tarnish the DCEU.

I totally agree with Chaosthe15th. At this point, I really highly doubt the DCEU will ever get on its own two feet. I think the opportunity for it to become a legitimately successful thing has been and gone, and there's just been too much damage done. I'm not even excited for new announcements anymore. Gotham City Sirens should have been a dream come true for me, but I'm honestly not interested at all. I think sooner or later, fans and haters alike will wash their hands with the DCEU and leave it to rest. A real shame for DC fans.

I'm calling it now, Wonder Women is going to be complete garbage and at that point not even the fanboys will be able to defend these films anymore.

Nice to see ya around again, dude! :)
Well, last year I wouldn't have agreed with that. But lately, WB has been proving to be so clueless when it comes to the DC Universe. After realizing the success of Marvel studios, Warner has been so desperate to make the easy money, that they've been dropping the quality with each new DC film.
I really hope they turn this around. But I can't help getting worried, since everything after Justice League remains a mistery.
