Geoff Johns certainly plans to brighten up the DC film universe, anyway, if this news story is anything to go by.
While there’s not exactly a massive amount of detail in that story, there is this:
Johns and his co-head Jon Berg worked closely with Justice League director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio to make the film closer to their vision of the DC Universe.
“We accelerated the story to get to the hope and optimism a little faster,” Berg explained.
To my mind, that sounds like Johns and Berg looked at the reaction to Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman and even the not-as-light-hearted-as-the-trailer-made-out Suicide Squad and have said “Enough with the dark and the rain and the grimness of it all!”
Even the above picture is brighter and sunnier than anything we’ve seen from the DC films so far and that, this news, and the excellent Wonder Woman trailer all have me hoping that the Zack Snyder/David Goyer grim as all hell era is behind us.
