You're right. More substance, and depth and gravitas and pathos and more of a whole bunch of other movie critic buzzwords which will utterly sink a JL movie if it's done that way .
But hey, if you like flops with substance, fine.
I think you might be the only person in the world that thinks The Dark Knight Rises
is a flop.
I'm not saying that a Justice League movie has to be the same tone as the Dark Knight
. I would rather it not. But I would also it rather not be the same tone as The Avengers
. Variety aint a bad thing. But, if DC just wants to make The Avengers 2
before Joss can... more power to them I suppose.
And what movie critic took a dump in your morning cereal? They aren't "buzzwords." They are words with meaning. People USE them.
