First the rumors... they started earlier this week, saying how WB and DC are thinking about cutting some movies out of their comic book schedules. Or other rumors are saying they are possibly looking to revamp how they write their comic book movies, without looking like they're copying "someone else."
OK, great, the rumors are flying, but no one at Warner Bros or DC Entertainment is confirming this noise even if the rumor mongers love pumping out "shocking" headlines.
But what we now do know is that Warner Bros has just announced some MINOR movie date changes.
The Wonder Woman movie release date has now been pushed up from June 23, 2017 to June 2, 2017, which is not a big deal, but they're pushing way back another film, Jungle Book: Origins, from its Oct. 6, 2017 release date to Oct. 19, 2018. (THIS IS NOT the Jungle Book movie coming in pretty soon, this is a different one.)

With that said, according to some reviews, the Batman v Superman movie did not have enough humor in it.
I am not completely sure about you, but if you have ever checked in on any Batman comic titles, humor is not part of this dark detective's mode. Hence the title of Christopher Nolan's movies, Dark Knight this and that. Clue in on the 'Dark' part.
But right now, while attitudes are still settling in on BvS's somber mood, Gal Gadot is now spreading her words of warning that Wonder Woman will be a very serious film, while Jason Momoa is weighing in his upcoming Aquaman movie as well as the harsh criticisms about BvS:
Here's what he said in one interview...
"There's been some things here and there, but I'm stoked. There's a lot of support from fans. There's a big beautiful world. There's a lot -- a lot -- of stuff. I feel really privileged to know that there's a lot of big, beautiful stuff that's going to happen. I'm excited too, for people to see the final product. And now it's our turn -- it's Justice League time! I've been waiting for four years that I've known about it that I've had to keep my mouth shut. I'm super pumped to shoot it!
Some people liked it, some people didn't, it is what it is. I don't get it, but I don't really listen to what anyone says...You can't win 'em all. And I had a ball. I loved it."
UM, WTH? Talk about distracting fluff.
To me what Momoa just said seems like a man who lives a life with honesty while trying to balance out the marketing spin that his employers want him to banter.

So WB is having their team start to do their own version of damage control, no matter how beautiful it is... and we wait to see if any of the unfounded rumors actually come to be.
Will they pull Zack Snyder and his visions from upcoming films? Or will they put someone else on his shoulder, like a supervisor parakeet that needs to double check his visions and dream worlds before he shoves them into the final product.

Again, the critics who trashed on BvS have their heads up their asses and don't understand the source material, while the fans themselves, who have given the film a 7.3/10 on IMDb, do get it and enjoyed it. I've seen it twice. The second time around, I get what the critics are saying. But gang, really?
If you want to know what critics you can trust, I show you how to find them, here...
