A quality Justice League movie absolutely could because

Dark Knight Rises didn't make a huge amount less than Avengers. And that was without 3D and with a gigantic tragedy attached to it. I really don't think it's box office drawing power would be an issue. As long as it's well-received.

And who says they aren't putting in time or effort? The movie, if the 2015 date is still on, would come out 4 years after the screenwriter, who is a fan, was hired. Joss Whedon was hired to rewrite the Avengers script from page one less than 2 years before Avengers' release date and he was still writing during shooting. They hired a fresh face who has gotten praise for the work he has done and loves the characters to write it, like Nolan at the time. Besides finding the right director to bring it all together, it's pretty much in Will Beall's hands.

2011: "This movie sucked because of executive meddling."

2016: "This movie sucked because it didn't have a designated meddling executive."
