Marvel Actor Explains Why DCEU Movie Failed, ‘Director Didn’t Get His Cut’
Almost every film released by Marvel are box office triumphs. However, DCEU hasn’t been able to achieve the same success as their rival.Advertisement
The recent DCEU movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, failed to appeal to fans as well as critics. Moreover, the movie fell short in achieving its predicted box office earnings.
While many critics shared their opinion regarding the downfall of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, actor Chadwick Boseman recently decided to share his perspective.
During an interview with Radio Times, the Marvel actor said that he watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the first night. According to him, he was “not exactly sure what they did wrong.”
The Black Panther actor added that the movie could have failed because “there’s at times [too] many people deciding something. That there’s not a clear voice from the director.”
“Sometimes when you watch movies you see that the producers are saying something, someone else is saying something, the directors are saying something. And sometimes, it doesn’t work. I don’t know if that’s why it doesn’t resonate, if it’s because maybe the director didn’t get his cut, I have no way of knowing that. I just feel like, what I have experienced at Marvel is that the directors are very much making the movie. So maybe that’s it.”
Boseman’s reason is similar to fans’ response after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. It was revealed that the audience found the theatrical cut more disappointing compared to the director’s cut.
Boseman played Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War. The actor will reprise his role in the stand-alone Black Panther movie.
