There Justice League of Joss Whedon left collateral damage in the minds of onlookers. $657 million in revenue for almost $300 million budget off marketing and disastrous reviews. Spectators booed the filthy visual effects and infamous red mush that envelops the final segment of the feature film. Fans have therefore ardently campaigned for Zack Snyder returns to provide his aborted version of the feature film, which arrived on HBO Max in the form of a mini-series. The reviews were much better, so many thought that the director’s universe could be resurrected on screens.
It is in this sense that DC Movies had made the comeback of Superman (Henry Cavill) in the post-credits scene of black adam… Before everything is once again aborted following the flop of the film carried by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Result: the new direction DC Movies carried by James Gunn and Peter Safran decided to finish the Snyderverse via four films acting as a last stand: Shazam: Wrath of the Gods, The Flash, Bluebeetle and Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom.
The Flash by Andy Muschietti (June 14, 2023) will be an opportunity to see on screen for the very last time the Batman of Ben Affleck.

This is the worst experience I’ve ever had in a company that’s full of shitty experiences. It broke my heart. There was someone’s idea [Joss Whedon] who arrived saying, “I’m going to save you and we’ll do 60 days of filming and I’ll write all around what you did. I have the secret”. And that wasn’t the secret. It was hard. And I started drinking too much. I was back at the hotel in London, it was that or jump out the window. And I just thought, ‘This is not the life I want. My children are not there. I am miserable. » »
An understandable statement given the dazzling duration of filming that the project must have represented. Justice League between the initial filming of Zack Snyderthe additional reshoots of Joss Whedon and those to turn the film into a mini-series for HBO Max.
