I do not downright hate them but I'd really like a complete overhaul, both to distance the DCFU from the DCEU but also to move toward a lighter look.

Especially Aquaman and the Flash.
Are there any leaked pics of any modification in Wan's movie?
Glad I’m not the only one that saw issues with the costumes in Justice League.

Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg need big changes

Superman’s foamy muscled looked weird in JL

Batman’s suit is good from a design standpoint but it looked cheap at times in JL. Idk how to describe it. The material maybe?

Wonder Woman has the best costume. No changes needed, but I? want everyone else to get some changes for sure.

Get rid of Wilkinson

My only real complaint is why did they turn Batman into Catman? Where are the ears? Look at the ears on the Keaton era Batman. Then they shrunk on Bale and now are just a couple of bumps.
Look at a real bat. Isn't Batman supposed to look like a bat? Plus where did the bat emblem on his chest go, the costume has gotten so monochromatic.

Honestly, I don't even understand how you got where you are about this. Didn't feel forced or disingenuous to me.

Lat time I saw it yesterday, the audience clapped. Not a brand killer. I pretty much feel almost all its problems are marketing and BvS residue

Because it reeks of the same reactionary cynicism that plagued BvS and Suicide Squad before it. The same "you whined about this so here you go, you ****ing crybabies" mentality that lead to BvS going out of it's way make sure we all knew areas were uninhabited to justify more disaster porn and Suicide Squad being recut by a trailer company to be more like Guardians of the Galaxy. Another half an hour and an ounce of subtly could have gone a long way with how Superman was handled.

It's insulting and frankly I'm glad this movie is a disaster because if Warner Bros is going to treat the fans like they're idiots then they don't deserve my business moving forward.
Their failings are detrimental to the DC brand as a whole and we're going to be seeing the fallout from this for years to come

"Oh, Batman is a super grim-dark character that is hyper-violent and borderline psychotic!"

I keep saying this. If any comic book writer should be consulted for Batman, Grant Morrison should be on speed-dial. A character that has dedicated years of his life to mastering various forms of martial arts and meditation would be in-tune with himself spiritually, physically, emotionally, and psychologically. And despite all cries to the contrary, there is nothing inherently wrong about Batman having a sense of humor and not taking himself so deadly serious all the time. Morrison understands this, and it's why his work with the character in recent years has ranked among the best.

For me, Batman is a perfectly blended cocktail of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond, with a splash of Indiana Jones.

So I think we can all agree that the Frankenstein monster that is Justice League by Snyder/Whedon/executives shows that they were still trying to re-work it to make that movie work right up to the last minute.
Even with that it was a financial bomb.

So, to bring this back to why I started this thread, is there really any doubt at this point that DC doesn't know what they're doing? I have to think that over the past month or so DC execs have been scrambling to figure out some way to fix having turned some of the most beloved characters of all time into box often stinkers that people don't want to see.
It just boggles my mind, and honestly I don't think they have anyone capable enough to actually salvage this movie universe, which is really sad because I love those characters (well, most of them)

I don’t like short Bat ears either.

Warner Bros. Tops $5 Billion at 2017 Worldwide Box Office, Led by ‘Wonder Woman’

Led by “Wonder Woman,” Warner Bros. has crossed the $5 billion mark at the global box office this year, marking only the second time it has ever crossed the milestone.
The studio made the announcement on Tuesday, noting that it’s also the eighth time in the last nine years that Warner Bros. has earned more than $4 billion in a single year.
The announcement came five days after Disney proclaimed it had topped $5 billion worldwide for the third year in a row.
Warner Bros. noted that it had five titles take in more than $500 million worldwide with “Kong: Skull Island,” “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk,” “It,” and “Justice League.”
Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” leads the list with $821 million with “It” at $694 million, “Justice League” at $570 million, “Kong: Skull Island” at $566 million, and “Dunkirk” at $525 million.

There are many rumors about DC Studio because of Marvel Movies success. If we talk about in comics or TV serial zoner DC is best, but in Movies Marvel getting success. DC will give us splendid movies. Just wait and Watch.

Don't Judge anyone before knowing anything.

I agree with everything you said here (except maybe the love of THe Dark Knight Returns which I am not particularly fond of). Morrison and maybe Paul Dini would be great consultants for Batman.

Not sure I agree, but I will say that I haven’t really felt a Geoff Johns presence in anything we’ve gotten so far.
