Creative Close-Up: The Future of the DC Extended Universe

10.30.18 The folks at Warner Bros. and DC have decided to push back the release date of WW84, the upcoming sequel to 2017’s success Wonder Woman. Now they are pushing back production and filming of The Flash standalone film and that won’t be released till 2021! What is WB/DC doing?  I wasn’t too happy with the change of WW84, but I can understand why they’re pushing the release date. The first Wonder Woman film was released in June and did fantastic at the box office. The release date has been pushed back three times. Previously the date was set for December 13, 2019, then November 1, 2019, but now the official date is June 5, 2020. The magic month of June gave them box office success the first time, why not try it again? Not only that but if the date was November 2019, the Amazon Princess would be in competition with the new Terminator film, then Charlie’s Angels (why!?)…I can only see WW84 in competition with Terminator, not really. This was a financial business …

Creative Close-Up: DC Extended Universe is Not Dead

January 29 / 18 Question…Is the DC Extended Universe Dead? For some or most people yes, but for those like me, no. Not even. We eagerly waited for Justice League to hit theaters. We were giving the latest superhero film high hopes, but alas, that wasn’t’ the case. I for one like the film. Don’t get me wrong, it had its share of great and funny moments. There were some scenes that we saw in the trailers didn’t make it to the film. Let’s not forget about Henry Cavill‘s CGI disastrous upper lip. My only complaint is how rushed the film was. Zack Snyder had to leave due to a personal tragedy, so Joss Wheadon finished where Snyder left off. Wheadon wrote the screenplay (along with Chris Terrio) for the film. With both director’s visions put together, what we got was a mess.     Justice League grossed $655 million worldwide, while domestically the total was $227 million. These figures are low. I would’ve expected more from both markets, but again, that’s not the case. According …
