I don’t give Justice League much hope for succeeding where the other DC movies haven’t. The dour tone of the DC movies plays into it. “Gritty” is not the same as actively hating various characters as Snyder apparently hated Superman.

This is a problem that’s plagued the comics for a while, too, especially at DC. “Grim and Gritty” has been DC’s trademark for a number of years, which is okay when you’re talking Batman, but completely the opposite of what you need for Superman. During their “New 52” phase, they essentially tried to shoehorn all of their characters into the template of Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” films.

I haven’t been able to read comics on a regular basis for many months, but it seems DC is starting to improve. Marvel, on the other hand, is turning Captain America into a Nazi, for some damn reason… :/
