After a disappointing start to the DC Extended Universe with two critical flops in a row (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad), 2017 looks to be the year that Warner Bros. gets their plan back on track. The studio has two major releases arriving in the near future which look to turn things around and hopefully give us something a whole lot better than what we’ve seen so far.
Of course, we’re referring to Justice League and Wonder Woman. We’re still quite far off from both, so it’s hard to say for sure whether or not they’ll be hits, but things are definitely looking positive at this stage. That’s why it pains us to report that unfortunately, the DC Extended Universe may be facing a lot more trouble later this year. At least, if Schmoes Know are to be believed.
The outlet’s been on point in the past with their scoops and today, they’ve got a big one. According to a source close to Wonder Woman, the film is an absolute mess. Schmoes Know won’t say how this person is involved with the project, but it’s the same source who told them that Dawn of Justice was a disaster as well.
We hate to be the bearers of bad news, folks, but here’s the quote in full:
“I heard it stinks from the same person who told me that they heard that BvS stinks…The person who I spoke to…their response was ‘I’m very disappointed in what I saw, and it seems like all the problems are the same problems. It’s discombobulated, it doesn’t have narrative flow. It’s just very disjointed.”
Of course, Schmoes Know’s source could always be wrong, but this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Wonder Woman may be in a bit of trouble. Sure, the trailers have been impressive, but you can’t judge a movie based on previews alone. After all, early footage from the other two DC films looked promising as well.
If this scoop turns out to be true, it’s going to be very, very bad news for Warner Bros. After 3 strikes they’ll be skating on extremely thin ice and unless Justice League is a tremendous home run which, let’s face it, isn’t very likely, the entire future of their DC Extended Universe will be in serious jeopardy.
We won’t know for sure if there’s any truth to this or not until much closer to the film’s June 2nd release, but let’s hope that the Schmoes aren’t on point with this one.
