And that knowledge worked against the DCEU.
Everyone already knows Superman. So they're not gonna want to see a angsty sad Superman that looks like saving people makes him want to die.
Everyone already knows Batman. So they're gonna respond negatively to a murderous psychotic version that's pushing 60s.
Everyone knows Wonder Woman. So if you get her "wrong" in any way you might as well have dived headfirst onto a landmine.
But you idiots wanted to push NEW "kino" versions without bothering to sell people on why the new take was a good one, without seeing if anyone wanted them, or even stopping to check after the first one to see if it was selling as a direction.
You're absolutely right. Everyone knows Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. And when they show up, we'll be here with our money. NOT BEFORE.
