So many feel that DC has dropped the ball even with BVS but everyone tends to agree that WW is going to be their saving grace. As far as the CGI goes many people are going to have to just get over it or stop going to see the movies, without if these types of movies are not going to have that wow factor that people want. Keep in mind that these movies are not made for the fans but more for the general public, we might get a few bones tossed our way but that's about it.
After seeing Doctor Strange last night, that's definitely a trend Marvel intends to continue. They changed a lot from the DS comics, much of it unnecessarily tweaked to fit a story we've seen before, with another character. DC seems to be better at making movies that appeal equally to general audiences and comic book readers.

I hate to break the news but every actress who has headlined a TV or movie show is on multiple sites which publish such things along with other stuff wile keeping the discussion PG-13 like pictures of their feet.

He spends more time making profit euphemisms about Wonder Woman's legs than the does speculating on the most basic question: Will it be worth watching?

And that's where all the blather about successful movies continually misses the point. What makes a good movie isn't the stars or the cameos or the brand tie-ins or the franchise opportunities. Those are all just added details. What makes a good movie is the story. Get that right, and all the rest only enhances it. Get that wrong, and all the rest is only lipstick on a pig.

Make a great story that moves people, and I can promise you it will make money.

Mark Hughes is the writer who gets more into the actual movie. Scott just likes to talk numbers, but that's always been the focus of his column.

Yeah, and it's FORBES. Complaining about FORBES articles obsessing over money is like complaining that McDonald's smells like French Fries. But what would we do with the Internet if we didn't complain?

In all seriousness, I'm very much looking forward to WW. It's one of three movies coming out this year that I intend to see in the theater. So if it stinks, look forward to pages of me complaining. This is DC's last chance to get me to care a flying flip about their movies.
