An open letter was published on Pajiba that comes from an alleged (but unverified) former employee of Warner Bros. The employee, writing as "Gracie Law" (a character in Big Trouble in Little China) writes angrily to WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara about the way he has handled the DC Films slate, along with their other movies as well. The letter was written after she saw Suicide Squad, which she said made her angry.

"A lot of fans might be angry (and rightfully so) because you keep completely whiffing at properties that they are desperate to love and enjoy, but this is a little more personal for me. See, I am a former Warner Bros employee. I have so much respect for your studio," she said. She wasn't happy with the way Tsujihara handled layoffs in 2014, then starts to rail on his "failures" like Blended, Jersey Boys, and the "completely botched release" of Edge of Tomorrow and Man From UNCLE.

She then reveals that she started writing this same letter a year ago, but wanted to give him time - and give Suicide Squad the chance to come out.

"And here we are. I got back from my screening and dusted this sucker off. You, your executive team, and the vision of your 'extraordinary storytellers' that resulted in the loss of around one thousand jobs seem intent on crashing the ship into as much shit as you can find in the ocean by making inane decisions over and over again," she wrote.

She's very non-specific about what she actually disliked about Squad other than to say basically everything (and, we should note, Suicide Squad was the #1 film last weekend, and looks to take #1 again in weekend 2). Instead, she went into Zack Snyder's "screw ups" that make people below him "suffer." She then criticized the Hall H San Diego Comic-Con panel as "a ridiculous mess that ranged from rushed to boring," and reached back in time a bit to question why he announced the DC Films slate on a shareholder conference call instead of at a Comic-Con or special event.

Finally, the writer alleges that Wonder Woman is "such a mess. Don't try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it's another mess," something that no reports or Hollywood insiders have said/reported about the film at this time. Wonder Woman, regardless, is the first film said to be more strictly under new DC Films co-head Geoff Johns' purview, where he worked more as a consultant in his Chief Creative Officer and producer positions on the previous films.

The open letter has to be taken with a grain of salt - no evidence or independent confirmation that the writer is who they claim to be is offered, after all. But it does echo a lot of the feelings some critics and fans have been putting out there for the last year or two. You can read the full letter at the Pajiba link above.
