Poor Batfleck

I didn't see, but it sounded horrible. As someone said, "they made a movie with batman and superman that you can't take your kids to." Even the Nolan movies weren't quite that "adult." It isn't that I think everything - even superhero movies - should be aimed at 8-year-olds, but they should still be something that a mature kid might actually enjoy.

Affleck was named as executive producer of the Justice League films last week, according to the site. And Birth.Movies. Death claims the timing is no coincidence as Warner battles to save its superhero cinematic universe following Batman v Superman’s critical travails.

“This move seems to help placate Affleck while also edging Zack Snyder out of a controlling central position in the DC Movieverse,” suggests Faraci. The site’s report claims the film-maker will work with Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio, who also co-wrote Batman v Superman, to ensure the script for the sequels are up to scratch.
