The general consensus regarding the DC Extended Universe seems to be that the first three films were all messes, but Wonder Woman might’ve provided a fresh start. Turns out that even Superman himself would agree with this.
“Even if Marvel didn’t exist, we’d struggle,” Cavill stated. “There was a style they [DC] were going for, an attempt to be different and look at things from a slightly different perspective, which hasn’t necessarily worked. Yes, it has made money but it has not been a critical success – it hasn’t given everyone that sensation which superheroes should give the viewer.”
Cavil went on to mention that Wonder Woman will hopefully get the franchise on track.
“It is even better to come back from a mistake or stylistic error into the correct vein because it will make it seem that much stronger. Wonder Woman was the first step in the right direction.”
Cavill is set to appear in Justice League, which hits theaters on November 17, 2017. Hopefully it’s a film the cast can be proud of.
