Snyder's vision of Batman as an involuntary parody of the ultra-serious, psychotic vigilante undoubtedly caused a certain degree of damage to Batman's image. That's quite a feat. It takes a special kind of talent to fuck up an intellectual property like Batman.

What worries me is the fact that WB is a company of extremes when it comes to DC. They may end up thinking that bringing back the "Adam West style" for modern audiences is the right answer for Snyder's excesses - but I think it would be another mistake. I don't want Batman to be a psychotic killer. But I don't want him to be a buffoon, either. I think he needs his seriousness and 'shadowy edge'.

The conflicts generated by his 'insulated temperament' have created some really interesting stories in the comic books. Snyder just didn't have the talent, as director and storyteller, to properly explore this aspect of his personality.


Of course WB will think that way. Stupid is as stupid does, and WB does stupid very well. After all, Geoff Johns is still employed. It's not as if it's full-on Frank Miller at his craziest or Adam West or nothing. Damn, Denny O'Neil, Chuck Dixon, Miller at his best, Morrison, hell, Dini....and many more all did good versions of the character, neither a nutcase nor an idiot.

Well then its a good thing that Vaughan was just talking out loud to get attention for himself and has not made any formal pitch to Warners, nor have they approached him for a Director gig. He has also been posting about his ideas for "MOS 2".

The box office numbers for JL are pathetically low. It has not even topped Man of Steel with a cume of $668 million but the movie should break even with the upcoming DVD release.

How ‘Justice League’ Became a ‘Frankenstein’ (Exclusive)

From a merger to missteps to tragedy, the film just ran out of time, insiders say.

The pathetic thing is that Warner Bros should have fired Zack Snyder and his wife years ago but the fact they didnt, has cost them millions. To date, Warner Bros has the lowest box office out of the new DCCU with Justice League which considering it was Warner Bros answer to the mega-successful The Avengers is just comically sad. Still if there is an upside to this, Snyder will never direct another big budget Warner Bros superhero movie again.

It was also way too late for Warner Bros to delay Justice League (which the story from The Wrap neglected to mention) because by the time WB executives were thinking of delaying the release the worldwide merchandising onslaught had already commenced and to delay the movie would have resulted in massive lawsuits from toy manufacturers/merchandising partners. Either way it was a lose-lose situation.

As AT&T Merger Looms, Warner Bros. Revamps Its Film Ranks

There’s been a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on at Warner Bros. movie studio over the past month. This week, in a major management shift, Toby Emmerich was put in charge of all film operations with expanded duties, and the studio’s veteran worldwide marketing and distribution chief Sue Kroll was moved out of her role into an exclusive production deal on the Burbank lot.

In early December, after the box office disappointment of “Justice League,” Warners pushed out Jon Berg, the executive overseeing the studio’s DC films (he’s now producing partner with filmmaker Roy Lee), and a week ago promoted its New Line executive Walter Hamada to a new role shepherding the DC superhero pictures and other comic-book movies to the big screen.

In other words, they're moving the deck chairs around. Johns is still in charge, Goyer is still big at WB, and shit will continue to flow.

Still awaiting official confirmation but it looks like Justice League Action has been cancelled by Cartoon Network.
