I suspect you are right. And to be honest, although I hate to wish ill will on anyone, including DC, on a certain level I hope
you are right... On a certain level, I would love it if their hype-oriented gimmick projects would all fail one after another and then maybe, just fucking MAYBE, they would learn a damn lesson (not that I'd hold my breath even then). Because it's the only thing that might teach them one -- if their idiot ideas cost them money instead of making them money, and bomb, and panned by critics as well as fans.
And on another level, I think DC deserves
to take it in the shorts on this series, just because of all the shit that went into it (not just canceling Legion as a series but x-ing it out of the mainline continuity to replace it with more JL... plus the Keven Maguire thing... to think they replaced Maguire's art with the Rorschach tests that are Porter's panels).
But although my Schadenfreude taste buds might tingle at the idea, I still think it's too early to tell for sure. DC could always pull some idiot gimmick out of the hat at the 11th hour that the even stupider fanboys will go for, like 3D covers or gold-embossed pages or something.
