So CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR crushed the box-office. It was released on Digital. It hit Blu-Ray & DVD… NOW it gets an HONEST TRAILER!
Yea, I was a little excited when this hit. (I love me some HONEST TRAILERS.)
Gotta say, outside of the hilarity of some it’s comments, I thought it made a great comment when it came to the comparison to BATMAN V SUPERMAN… which I was NOT a fan of that movie…
I can’t help but wonder if Warner Bros. is taking note of that comparison? With DC Entertainment being formed, and Geoff Johns being named president, here’s hoping the ship of DCU movies can be steered in a positive direction… though, I’m not sure if they’re still getting an idea of what the right track might be. As they’ve been on record in saying they’re shifting movies to have a more “positive” tone.
Personally speaking, I’m not sure it’s about having an overall positive tone. Going back to Honest Trailers comparison to CIVIL WAR to BATMAN V SUPERMAN, just shows you can have an overcomplicated plot, just as long as your true to your characters, regardless of what form of tone that may take.
And I think that’s the lesson Warner Bros. and DC is missing. With BATMAN V SUPERMAN, it was more a Zack Snyder movie than it was a Batman & Superman movie. As if Snyder was thinking about how to fit the characters into his world view, rather than how could he contribute to the DCU.
But we’ll see what happens with JUSTICE LEAGUE. Fingers-crossed.
