    Most critics of recent DC properties just want to see something good that does justice to the source material. It's not that people dislike the IP, they dislike how poorly its been handled. DC fans and movie fans should expect better.

    Nolan's Batman series was rightfully a critical darling...they're still the standard for superhero movies. Since then there hasn't been a firm hand on the rudder, and it's shown. I mean, what even qualifies as the best live-action thing they've done since Nolan left?

    Wonder Woman was a hit.
    I didn't think Man of Steel was as bad as people made it out to be.

    It was clear the studios meddled far too much in the BvS movie and even Suicide Squad. Which is why now with Gunn at the helm, it might actually get made the way it should.

    The CW properties have mostly been teenage fodder but Gotham has been actually surprisingly good once they permanently removed Jada Smith.

    Titans has been decent as well so far, it's a different take but people seem to accept different takes with Marvel more than they do DC.

    Yeah, Wonder Woman definitely qualifies, I blanked there.

    Other than that though, pretty slim pickings. If nothing else, WW showed that when the company puts out a good product, it's not gonna automatically get panned. FWIW I don't think Marvel's TV properties are much different than DC's in terms of quality.

    That garbage shields show, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Iron man 2, the predictable avengers coming back for the next installment because no one really stays dead, only the easily beatable bad guys...etc.

    But it makes money.

    Hey, guess what...so did the Transformers franchise.

    It looks like they really took proper care of making Shazam (re-shoots, updating the suit) and Aquaman (hiring a fantastic director, good writers, solid cast).

    Oh, then there's the Joker standalone movie. That one might be a game changer. Not everything needs to tie into each other.

    Gunn could also right the ship with Suicide Squad 2 and take helm of another project.

    There's definitely hope. I liked tone of the Shazam trailer, I trust Phoenix to do something interesting with Joker, and Gunn's track record could make him an ideal option to resurrect Suicide Squad. Scrapping the shared universe idea was the right move, at least for now.

    But so far, I think the DC criticism is generally well-earned. They need to dig themselves out the hole they dug themselves when it comes to public opinion.

    The question is--when will Batman be on Titans?

    Stopped reading right here. Someone didn't bother sticking it out. It's a great show now.

    I did.

    I wish I didn't.

    It's about as bad as the CW DC shows.

    Nah, not really.

    It's my opinion, you're entitled to think it's crap the same way I think yours is in regards to Titans.

    Love Teen Titans and Titans in general. Was excited about the possibilities of this show but the trailers did not look very good.

    Finally gave the first episode a watch and it was okay. Robin and Raven stuff was fine.

    Will wait to see more on Starfire and Beast Boy. Don’t really like her design and her first scene using her powers was meh.

    I have to say that this show feels unnecessarily gory/violent.

    I agree--pushing the anti-hero thing too much

    The problem is that there's nothing anti-hero about it. It's just comes off as violence/bloody for the sake of violence. Especially if you've seen the animated Teen Titans movies (not the show), which delved into Raven's background in a way that I doubt this show will have the budget to do. I had issues Jason Todd (though admittedly it's been a while since I saw him on the animated show) being so violent as well. It comes off as mere "shock value". Perhaps the posters more familiar with the character could elaborate a little.

    Ugh...It's like it's still done by CW. End the previous episode on a cliffhanger, do a filler episode next week... I didn't really care about Hawk & Dove the last time and didn't care about them now.

    With Hawk and Dove in season 2 they needed to give them something more this season

    It's already out...

    And no, it will not end because it's popular. Time to go slice your wrists and leave this plane of existence because it will never end. *cue evil laughter*
