Seems like every DCEU article I see on Facebook, when you go to the comments section, a bunch of people immediately jump down Snyder and BvS' throat. It does feel like some peopl just really enjoy trashing the film, maybe they enjoy riling up the people who like it, or they can't stand the fact that somebody actually enjoyed it, or they think the fans are just being "fanboys" and deluding themselves into thinking it's good. Go find any DCEU article on social media and scroll the comments, you'll see somebody starting an argument about how bad it sucked. I'm not saying everybody, and maybe I'm wrong. But it seems like, even in a lot of articles about future BvS films, the author even can't help but throw in a few jabs at BvS.


I can understand being disappointed or not liking the characterization or feeling like it had too many flaws to be considered good, but I don't really get the way some people act like the whole movie is garbage. I like to think I'm pretty open and unbiased and can understand people's critiques when you have a very vocal criticism of a film, so to me it just goes a little too far, and that makes me feel like people (who genuinely didn't like the movie) are getting swept away in the tide to thinking it's just an innately terrible film.



And I could be completely wrong, I'm not making a definitive statement, just that's the way I perceive it.
Completely agreed.

I agree with this too. I have stated in the JL thread that this is my worry too. However speaking of, you should come around in the JL section. Its less doom and gloom there, and occasionally we have some productive discussion. Occasionally. Most of the time its just random chit chat, but still a cool place for someone who likes these movies to hang around. Atleast it is now.

Normally I'd say I don't understand why anybody would devote so much time and thought to something they hated, rather than move on. But, I suppose in this case I can understand, because of people's love for the characters and the expectations of seeing them together on the big screen. And I think part of the reason we still have so much debate is because the movie did take risks and was so different, but a lot of people just focus on the perceived mistakes.

I only listen to offical interviews from cast and crew and dont care for BS before the film or after. Alot really is BS and we can't really know if most or any of the info is true. Click bait is for suckers who want to believe in negative BS to further their own negative views on the films.

Man of Steel was a hit no matter what others want to believe thats why WB continued from there.

Zac is the man in charge no matter what. Like it or hate it. It is the truth.

BvS was a hit. Not as big as what WB would of liked but doesnt every studio like their film to hit beyond 1 billion with ease. It was 120 or so million below. Not my investment. Not my money. Its not my problem.
Reviews are a matter of opinion and I loved it so they dont matter.

I did my part. I paid and I happened to even love it anyway.
Im getting sequels so its not all bad for WB and myself and for the people that want more.

There is alot of hate for the DCEU but I dont care and why should I. I have endured Batman and Robin's hate. So this will pass.
Even TDKR gets hate and thats made by Chris Nolan and that made a billion plus too and got great reviews.

I truly think that regardless of the reviews that BvS got and that if BvS made a billion plus then we wouldnt be having aleast half of the arguments about BvS and the future of the DCEU.

The DCEU is still making money. Its still making very big bucks at the B.O and still selling home videos and merchandise. Its not in trouble. Its only in trouble when the money stops because its a.......................... business.

I'm excited for JL because I love the previous films and Snyder and the cast so its all good.

Bring it on.

Agreed, after watching MoS and BvS UC back to back a few days ago, I am very optimistic about JL.

Eh, no way to know really. But a lot of people i know who don't go on message boards liked the movie, and even more so after seeing the UE. Then i have spoken to others who didn't like it and won't watch the USE as they think it will be no better. So that's the only thing i based my 50/50 guess on.

I do think the really good home sales show plenty liked it though.

Hey guys,

I'm a huge fan of the DCEU (although I can acknowledge that Suicide Squad was not that great, but I still enjoyed it). I loved Man of Steel and BvS. Just posting here because the amount of hate directed at BvS really saddens and depresses me.

I was so hyped and pumped when they released the JL teasers. Batman standing on the gargoyle was just.... Aquaman and Flash....so badass. And I was so excited to share it with my friends, but all I get back in return were cynical remarks: "It looks bad." "It looks like a teen movie." "BvS was so bad, especially with the stupid Martha plot. Oh our mothers have the same name, let's be friends."

I love these films and I love what Zack is doing with the universe. I acknowledge that there are many who might not feel the same way, but I don't understand why people go out of their way to put down the DCEU to boost others. I love both Marvel and DC, but these remarks and constant negativity is finally hitting me really badly. Take for example, those ridiculous comments about why Wonder Woman does not have shaved armpits. Is there no end to the nitpicking?

I'm sorry for the long post, I just wanted to let out how I've been feeling and from the recent posts, I can tell I am not the only one that feels this way at times, and that comforts me. Thanks guys.

I'm really pumped for WW and JL, but at this point, I just become scared of sharing my excitement for fear of being ridiculed, or the movies I love being put down.

When you support movies that are terrible, you have to expect a lot of criticism and negativity thrown at them. That's the way life works.

If you get sad and depressed over something as harmless as movie criticism, then the internet is not really the place for you. You're clearly far too sensitive to handle it.
