At it again are you? A fair question directed at the newest iteration of super hero consumption compulsion. Justice League comes out this Friday. I’ve read the reviews, and they’re not good.
The Twitterverse was a bit more, should I say, forgiving?
I think WB realizes that some critics will simply never like DC, no matter how they try to retool movies to make them happy.
That’s why there are #JusticeLeague screenings every day leading up to release. Word of mouth from people without agendas will drive people to theaters.

Weird double standard here, don’t you think? Just what the hell is the superhero genre if we continue down the path “Thor: Ragnarok” has you on? Will that be the standard? Will there need to be a cheeky, Robert Downey riff in every movie? These characters all come from different places, different origins, and more…and if the superhero movie genre wants to not flame out post 2020 or whenever Marvel completes it’s grand vision, you may want that diversity. Comic book movies aren’t all goody two shoes pulling puppies out of trees… the source material is quite manifold in it’s choice. Take a look at Vanity Fair’s review of “Thor.” You’ll see what I’m talking about. If you’d like to talk about it with me, love to with you! Comment below with your scathing and witty remarks.
