Feedback: Last week we talked about what Warner Bros needs to do to make the DCEU successful moving forward, and asked for your ideas. Timothy in LA wrote in: “One of the pitfalls of the DC movie universe is that they started too big villain-wise. Man of Steel had Zod who is way too big a threat to start off with. His goal was to terraform the earth and destroy mankind. That’s no different from Steppenwolf. There’s been nothing for DC to build up to. And, worse yet – Darkseid is going to do the same exact thing in the eventual sequel. If WB wants to improve these movies, they need to find something unique in terms of conflict. Flashpoint is a good start with an alternate timeline. A rule for these movies: no more aliens taking over the world, or villains threatening the whole of humanity.”
