How the Dark Knight Killed the DCEU. + Who Killed the DC Extended Universe?

It’s been ten years since the release of the best Batman movie the Dark Knight. Since then we’ve seen the rise and fall of the DC cinematic universe. To Celebrate that anniversary your favorite lobster reviewer had decided to look back and see how things became the way they are now and how the success of the Dark Knight destroyed everything else.

Aquaman is finally here, showing us how different the future of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) will look compared to Zack Snyder’s failed original vision. Today we’re reviewing just what went wrong: how an accomplished director led the DC Comics cinematic universe down a strange dark path, giving birth to a trilogy of comic book movies (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Justice League) which may go down in history as one of the most elaborate and expensive disasters in Hollywood history.
