I can't imagine this will turn out to be anything other than a mess of the movie with so many drastic changes this late in the game.

I'm honestly expecting this to be a trainwreck, but I'm just hoping at this point that it's the amusing kind of trainwreck.

I think this is a good call, the half-and-half venture. Keep the mainline movies still around for those who want them, but allowing standalones to be their own thing is a great call, and can allow for more experimentation like Fox has been trying with Deadpool and Logan.

Guess even Warner Bros. was bound to learn something. Will we get any good movies from both divisions is the real question.

The DCEU is good as dead.
Sounds like the MCU but much more flexible. Of course I severely doubt they'll use that potential right though.

Thor: Ragnarok is doing exceptionally well with the early reviews. Like, better than anyone expected from it. If the buzz is to be believed, then we may have finally gotten ourselves a genuinely good Thor movie after the mediocre first film and the outright bad Dark World. It's nice to know since I always did really enjoy Hemsworth's portrayal of Thor. It was just unfortunate that he never got any strong material to work with outside of the first Avengers movie (whereas the second inexplicably cut him out from a large chunk of the plot).

Hemsworth and Hiddleston were very well-casted, but yeah, they've never gotten the movie they've deserved. It's sounding like a lot of fun, and another good addition to the MCU.

Thor: Ragnarok was a lot of fun. I know that tends to sound redundant when describing Marvel movies, but to be honest I don't see a problem with that myself. I notice a lot more snobby reviewers that like to put down MCU films for just being casual entertainment, but watching a movie like this reminds me of why it's fine to have movies of this nature as long as they are executed well, and this one most certainly is.

I didn't expect to see Hulk's asscheeks.

And just as expected, the reviews for Justice League range from mixed to negative, with the most praise that I've consistently seen for the film being boiled down to "Eh, well at least it's not as bad as BVS or Suicide Squad."

At any rate, regardless of your feelings on it, this officially marks the end of the Snyder-verse. If nothing else, hopefully these can serve as an example for future DC films to learn from the mistakes of the past and not repeat them.
