Having said that, I had fun. But they need to step up their game. At least the MCU doesn't shy away from what it is: a silly and shallow franchise, that embraces both those traits and puts them to use. If DCU is going to try hiding the silliness and shallowness behind false depth, they're screwed.
That sounds a little pretentious. The movies have a lot of substance, sorry if you can't see that.
