They’re reportedly thinking of recasting/minimizing Amber Heard in AQUAMAN 2, and Ezra Miller is in the wind and evading a restraining order. Because, yeah, that’s not gonna have any effect on THE FLASH’s box office. …Look, I grew up on DC comics, okay? The Justice League was my jam. All of this is kind of embarrassing to watch.
Jonathan Last, on DC Comics*:
Whether or not they understand it, DC’s corporate mission isn’t to get mainstream attention for its publicity stunts–or even to sell comic books. It’s to create characters and stories which can be mined for Warner Bros. for film. The publisher has, thus far, failed spectacularly at this task.
Pretty much, pretty much.
