    Default Geoff Johns Wants DC Films to Include More 'Hope & Optimism'

    Though he wouldn't confirm reports that he is now in charge of DC Films, the DC Entertainment CCO was clear that the brand needs hope and optimism.

    I'll believe it when they finally get rid of Zack Snyder.

    there's too much hope and optimism in movies. We need grim/dark stuff, too.

    I'm sure there will be plenty in Wonder Woman.

    No need to water things down.

    Geoff Johns as a producer on Green Lantern was simply just for being a consultant for Green Lantern mythology. The New 52 certainly wasn't all him because he just continued his Green Lantern run right into the New 52.

    A good script. Last two DC movies did not have it. Neither did GL. Plus this is kinda ironic coming from the guy whose use of Superman in his JL run as mostly mind controlled, poisoned, or dying. And then he did a rather boring Superman story on his short Superman stint in new 52. Civil War hitting WB/DC hard, lol. It's called cohesive writing and character development.

    Brighter colors, and a more distinct music score would be a good start. Babysteps and all that.

    This sounds like a direct response to audience reactions to BvS' "dour" and "depressing" tone. Which I can totally get behind .

    What I feeling WB/DC is missing right now is a sense that everyone is on the same page, going in the same direction.

    Zimmer's scores for the Nolan trilogy, MoS and BvS trump anything I've heard from the Fox/Marvel camps' film scores. That goes without saying.

    I believe Hans Zimmer has stepped down from scoring superhero movies, so there's half of your equation.

    Personally, I disagree. I think Alan Silvestri's Avengers and Captain America themes are pretty uplifting and catchy.

    I'm game, but I found some in BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE...it just wasn't obvious and you had to dig deep to find it.
