DC Movies was one of the big absentees of the Comic Con of San Diego. We must admit that this is not easy for Warner to rub today to Marvel. The studios of Disney come to explode the record at the box office, held since 1997 by Titanic with the last Avengers: Endgame . Triumphant, Kevin Feige presented a series of new productions to San Diego, the phase 4 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In front, the results are meager for DC. From the artistic point of view, nothing to the height of the Batman trilogy of Christopher Nolan which was completed in 2012. No offense to Zack Znyder, director of a Superman highly agreed, and for a Batman v Superman disappointing. As to Justice League , decorum does not allow to write here what we think. In terms of results, it is a little bit better. Wonder Woman and Aquaman saves the license. The king of the oceans has raised $ 1.15 billion of revenue last year.

nothing To simplify, the DCEU wanders around in several worlds. On October 4, fate in room Joker by Todd Phillips, with Joaquin Phoenix in the skin of the psychopath in Gotham. Presented at the next Venice film Festival, in the month of September, the film seems to renew the spirit of Christopher Nolan. It will address the past of the clown psychopath, but will not be part of the main frame of the universe. At best, it could be included in a version of “alternative”, such as the upcoming The Batman by Matt Reeves.
