I enjoy a dark tone, when it is appropriate for the story, same goes for lighter tones, but I have to disagree with you on something. Just because something isn't dark, doesn't mean it is automatically for children, nor does a darker tone automatically make something adult or mature. Art, entertainment, and media shouldn't be put in a narrow box like that. There is room enough for all kinds of stories without having to scoff at certain things as "kids stuff." If you don't enjoy a particular style, that's cool, but some people like different things and that doesn't make them any less adult than someone who enjoys darker stories.Samtemdo8 said:What makes them think it won't be even more unwatchable with thier interference? After what happened to Suicide Squad?Silentpony said:This is apparently after the reshoots. Its still unwatchableSamtemdo8 said:I thought there was already Massive Reshoots going on when Joss Wheadon stepped in?
I also heard the movie will be 3 hours long.
So Pacing Issues, even with all the reshoots and changes this movie has to introduce Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg, The New God Steppenwolf's invasion of the world, and Superman's Return and than some. I think you need 4 hours to tell this story.
Dark Tone, I prefer a Dark Tone because I am not a little kid anymore and because I read Vertigo Comics and Watchmen. And most definitively do not want another Marvel esque tone, and Joss Wheadon's involvement is not doing any favors. And its baffling because WB wanted their DC movies to be dark like the Nolan Batman movies, everything about Man of Steel is made to be like Batman Begins, now they are saying they don't want a Dark tone because Money.
Cyborg, I guess its because from the trailers he's not the "BOOYAH" shouting teen and more like his New 52 personality. (As far as I read of him in the first Justice League issue)
OT: I feared this would be the case. DC rushed too fast with the Justice League. While I don't want the DCMU to just be another Marvel, this is one case I think they should've taken a page from Marvel's book. Build up to the big team up movie. Make a Flash movie, or an Aquaman movie. Set the pieces up before you play the game. Trying to introduce these characters, let the audience grow a connection with them, set up team dynamics, and give us a reason to care all takes time. DC got too ambitious with this one I think.
