Corroborating with EVIL
- May 28, 2014
Oliva made the better DTV's before AND since the shift. Spaulding...the worst.Just watched the sneak peak, and knowing that Sam Lui is directing and Alan Burnett is writing have me believing that this may actually be good and not decent to weak. I also believe this means Warner Bros Animation is taking note that people haven't been taking well to the Jay Oliva & Ethan Spaulding direction.
As far as sales are concerned, streaming has been a recent option and the movies haven't been nearly as exposed as when they used to premiere on CN prime-time.
That's how they reel in a larger audience. The dvd covers even indicate that.I'm still a bit incensed that the film is called Justice League vs. Teen Titans and not the inverse if it's not really a Justice League film. Assault on Arkham being called a Batman film was a pretty bad in that respect too.
The sales figures to JL: G&M are atm the lowest (not surprising since it's recent). The average critical score is also around the ballpark of these flicks. Son of Batman has still made the most, with the last $6 million gross attributed to Justice League: Doom.Anyway, hopefully we'll be able to put the Damien films and Justice League films pre Titans behind us after the 2017 slate, if these changes in staff are being made because the reaction to Gods and Monsters was positive while others films since 2014 have not enjoyed much success.
Tucker, since he's the one in charge of this division, including hiring the talent.It's a shame too, I don't want Warner Bros not to expirement with new talent and fall back on the sort of "old faithful" group that's always worked. It's just that the people making decisions now don't have the story telling maturity to, well, tell a decent story. I've really very much enjoyed all of James Tucker's work pre- JL: War; I don't really know who is to blame for the dry spell in creativity aside the new writers and directors.
If he would rather do silver age or lighter interpretations, it shows.
Thus explains the odd infusion of humor & tonal imbalance since JL: War.
Also, Superman Unbound is just the worst.
