justice league early buzz

After an aborted attempt at a Justice League movie from Mad Max helmer George Miller back in 2007, and the subsequent formulation of an entire cinematic universe with films like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman, we’re finally only a few calendar days away from the release of a real and completed live-action Justice League film.

Critics have had a love-hate relationship with the recent slate of DC movies (admittedly leaning a bit more toward hate than love), but now the first batch of social media reactions to Justice League have hit the web. So what’s the verdict? Is this more of the same, or is DC on the right track? Read the Justice League early buzz below.

MCU vs DECU

The animosity between Marvel and DC fans can sometimes be overwhelming. Rather than embracing the differences between these two different superhero universes, fans tend to start internet flame wars with each other, often resorting often hostile, violent language. It’s not fun, and it’s not at all in the spirit of the stories both of these cinematic universes are trying to tell.

One identifiable aspect of Marvel Studios movies is their post-credits scenes; DC avoided those for Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Wonder Woman, but compromised with a mid-credits scene in Suicide Squad.

One of the ways that might happen is to cut down on bloated runtimes, which was reportedly a priority with the next film under the DC banner, Justice League.

A new report from the Wall Street Journal indicates that WB’s CEO Kevin Tsujihara “made clear he wanted Justice League to be under two hours,” shorter than the excessive 151 minutes of Dawn of Justice.
