Weâ€™re not sure if youâ€™ve noticed, but the DC Extended Universe gets a whole lot of flack these days. There was once a time where these films were held up as cinematic masterpieces, but in todayâ€™s age, fanboys are ribbing at them left and right over every little thing. Ever since Man of Steel hit theaters a few years back, fans have been upset over what they felt was a misuse of the character, and the following two entries only seemed to further alienate those who were already upset.
Wonder Woman may have seemed to turn things around, but it seems only to have put a lot more pressure on the upcoming Justice League. As it stands, plenty of fans are still expecting this one to be a rough watch, and with Joss Whedon directing the reshoots for the film, and all the rumors surrounding two months of additional photography havenâ€™t helped a whole lot.
If youâ€™re involved in this universe, you can imagine how difficult it would be to block all the hate that constantly gets sent its way. Most recently, one fan made a fake Joss Whedon Twitter account, and went on to tweet at DC head honcho Geoff Johns, â€œthankingâ€ him for allowing him to reshoot the whole movie.
Johns poked back with a good-natured troll-like response.
You heard it here first. Scooby-Doo (which IS a DC comic, by the way) is in the DC Extended Universe. But the reveal goes so much deeper than that. There are four Oâ€™s and one B in Scooby-Doo. Four minus one is three. Also, thereâ€™s another franchise with a hyphen in the name. Half-Life. Boom. Half-Life 3 confirmed by Geoff Johns.
Okay, obviously thereâ€™s nothing here to see in terms of reveal, but whenever Johns puts down the shield and has fun with his Twitter account, itâ€™s usually worth mentioning. He last did that when the rumor of four Batman-centric films hitting in 2019 hit the web. So whatâ€™s the takeaway here? Is this his way of refuting those rumors about two months of additional photography? Thatâ€™s harder to say. Were they to come out and deny it flatly, weâ€™re not sure anyone would even buy it.
All we can really do is wait and hope that this film turns out to be every bit as good as Wonder Woman.
