I’ve talked before about “deboots.” Coined by the Simpsons, a deboot is a sequel that pretends that the previous movie or movies never happened, like the new Halloween movie that came out recently.
I just wanna start by saying that I am a huge DC fan, I grew up watching the DC cartoons; Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, The Batman New Adventures, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited. But it breaks my heart that the DC movies are terrible films compared to the Marvel movies. I will defend Man of Steel to the very end, but a lot of people hated it. Batman vs. Superman was a colossal disappointment. I haven’t seen Suicide Squad or Justice League, but I haven’t heard good things. But I have heard that Wonder Woman and Aquaman are pretty good films, and it saddens me that they are small gems in a universe of crap.
So here’s my solution, pretend that Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League never happened, and start off from Wonder Woman and Aquaman with a new Batman and Superman movie leading to a new Justice League. I got the idea from when I heard that the new Bumblebee movie was going to be recalibrated as a reboot to the Transformers series. That might not be true, but again, sounds like a great solution. Not to mention, Henry Cavil and Ben Affleck are quitting as Superman and Batman, so just pretend their movies never happened and start off with new actors and new stories. That’s just what I would do, don’t think it will happen. I’m just saying Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League makes us DC fans look bad and I think this is the best solution. Keep the good ones, reboot the rest.
