Horror Mavens Repairing 'The Worlds Of DC'



Last year, WB released the underwhelming superhero team-up "Justice League" to disappointing box office numbers. A polarized fanbase spoke with their dollars and decided that the former DCEU wasn't worth investing in. As a rare fan of all the DC films, I was definitely disheartened but understood that they rushed a cinematic universe to mixed results, to be kind.
And with Marvel Cinematic Universe practically knocking it out of the park with every release, it seemed like a course correction was expected. But "Justice League" was the course correction that was more of a reactionary decision than a planned out release. It looked bleak.
Then, as this years San Diego ComicCon released two trailers (for the much anticipated "Aquaman" and the surprise trailer for "Shazam!") the DCEU, now dubbed 'Worlds Of DC,' is looking up.
And it seems the secret sauce to this positive reaction is coming from WBs horror masters.
James Wan, the architect of his own cinematic horror universe, seems to be working wonders for "Aquaman." And his golden touch has given DC fans hope and they have faith in his talents.
David F. Sandberg, director of the films "Lights Out" (based on his short film) and "Annabelle: Creation," is putting his own golden touch to "Shazam!" The trailer has delighted many fans who were previously unaware of the history of the character and are all of a sudden excited to see it.
This is more proof that horror is a well of talented creators and films of other genres are seeking them out. As they should. Here's to more to come...
