With all of the shake-ups coming to director's chairs in the Warner Bros. and DC Films world in the past year, it's easy for some fans to scramble in panic that their favorite comic book heroes are going to be poorly represented on the big screen when Ben Affleck parts way with The Batman.
However, the more optimistic bunch see the restructing of filmmakers at DC Films as a positive sign for the heroes' futures. They're seeing the extra effort and care being put into the upcoming slate of films involving DC Comics heroes over the next few years.
One member of the optimistic bunch in DC Extended Universe photographer Clay Enos. Enos, who has been the on set photographer for Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Justice League, took to Twitter to share his opinion with a few fans of the DC Extended Universe and assure them the sky is not falling.
"It's all okay folks," Enos said. "'Holloywood'" is complicated and it usually works out for the best." As for the Justice League trailer which the fan Enos is responding to also asked about, "I'm as excited at you," Enos said, adding, "but patient."
Enos assures fans that Warner Bros. is not getting caught up in the Internet comment sections, as he promised "the studio makes films." He goes on to say, "It doesn't get distracted by gossip and rumor. They hear the fans and are working hard to please you in theaters."
In a later tweet, Enos elaborated his perspective on some of the panic from Affleck's departure. "This medium amplifies negatives," Enos said. "I'm fully optimistic that the DCEU is thriving and running as smoothly and as creatively as possible."
Rest assured, the folks involved with the DC Extended Universe have full faith in what's to come from their slate films! Now, if we could just get that Justice League trailer...
