The DC Extended Universe needs to die

September 18, 2018 1 min read

I remember back in 2013 when Man of Steelcame out. It was meant to be the big return of the Blue Boyscout to theatres after 2006's groan-worthy Superman Returns. After its release, people were split on whether or not Man of Steel was a good depiction of Superman to the point where people either loved it or hated it. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I could easily acknowledge how some people had gripes with it. But I never once had an issue with Henry Cavill as Superman. He never came across as arrogant, smug, holier-than-thou, or any words used to negatively describe Superman. He was just a good Superman.

And then this happened.

And then he lost goddamn his mind.

We've endured five years of the DC Extended Universe, but if you were to ask anyone what they thought about it, at best you'd have people say that it was okay. At worst, it's a dark, mishandled, poorly planned, poorly executed cinematic universe that is trying to ape Marvel but doesn't understand why the Marvel Cinematic Universe is as successful as it is. The DCEU, from its inception, was a slapdashed franchise that failed at handling any of its characters properly unless they were named Wonder Woman. And DC needs to take it out back like Old Yeller and do what they do best; kill things.
