Since Man of Steel, Warner Bros’ DCEU titles have been failing to appeal to critics, and at times, earnings reports. Although the recent Suicide Squad movie has been predicted to end at $700 million or more in the box office, the movie was still considered a failure by a majority of critics.
The current version of DC superheroes portrayed by Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and others was the first reboot of the entire cinematic universe. However, it looks like DCEU might consider rebooting some titles again.
Recently, it was pointed out by Collider News that film theorist R Sheridan believes DC will use Flashpoint to reboot the universe, as the actors and actresses get old in the future. Fans can check out the video below.
Collider’s Mark Reilly responded that “they can absolutely” look at the possibility of rebooting the cinematic universe. However, he added, “I don’t think they are going to do it anytime soon,” referring to upcoming titles like Justice League, Wonder Woman, and more Man of Steel 2.
Reilly also pointed out, “Marvel will also run out of gas,” suggesting the latter’s fictional universe will also consider a reboot soon. However, it looks like the success and failure of upcoming DC films will spell the future of DCEU.
Currently, fans are expecting Warner Bros’ next title Wonder Woman. The movie is expected to release on June 2, 2017. Furthermore, DCEU’s Justice League is also under the direction of Zack Snyder.
COO and President of DC Comics Geoff Johns has been appointed by Warner Bros to watch over the upcoming DC titles. Furthermore, the comic book writer has made significant rewrites to the Justice League and Wonder Woman scripts.
