Since the news was revealed of Suicide Squad having a troubled production, everyone is blaming the studios intrepid response by interfering with a directors vision for Suicide Squad. As right now, so many people believe the film is failing due to Warner Bros, but did Warners have good intentions? Are we looking at an overblown reaction towards any type of studio interference, or is there real clout? - TheNerdGuy

BvS is a very underrated movie that has been unfairly bashed. I am a DC fan, but honestly I don´t like Snyder as a director usually, but he surpassed all my expectations here.

I hate Man Of Steel, I thought Affleck was gonna make a horrible Batman, Eisenberg as Lex Luthor I hated, I kinda was unsure about Gal Gadot, I thought DC were rushing.

However after watching the movie, I have to eat Crow. This was a fascinating if not flawed movie, which I discuss at length in this video. I truly do not understand the rating for this movie.

I think it is being held to a higher standard than Marvel movies because Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are just superior, more legendary characters and we expect more from them than Marvel´s heroes. Anyway here are my thoughts. - aresww3
