DC Films and Warner Bros. probably didn’t want it to be this way. “Justice League” is supposed to be the centerpiece showcase of their cinematic universe, yet the film has been just as plagued with second guessing as “Suicide Squad.” Even had Zack Snyder not left for personal reasons during the film’s post-production, there still would’ve been massive reshoots to try and fix the movie, and Joss Whedon still would’ve been employed to write additional material — enough that he now has a screenplay credit on the movie.

Earlier this year, DC Films honcho Geoff Johns declared that “heart, humor, and heroics” are the elements that are needed for the future of the franchise. You’re probably going to hear those three words a lot from DC Films players, as the everyone is eagerly pivoting the cinematic universe away from the dark and dour tone established by Zack Snyder in “Man Of Steel” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” And even Ben Affleck is parroting the company line.
