Warner Bros. has officially updated the Justice League logo.
The brighter and more colorful logo reflects the universe-wide tone the studio hopes to express following complaints the shared DC Extended Universe is too dark.
Closer to release, Warner Bros. turned away from the metallic look in favor of an all-white logo with a star embedded in "Justice."
WB's big superhero team up — bringing together Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman together for the first time in live-action on the big screen — opened to just $93 million in mid-November, falling short of the $110 million it was projected to earn in pre-release tracking.
Mauled by critics, Justice League garnered only a 41% approval rating.
The blockbuster was initially projected to finish its global box office haul in the neighborhood of $675 million — a result that would place Justice League as the second-lowest earner of the DCEU, ahead of Man of Steel by just a few million — but now sits at just $655 million worldwide, making it the lowest-earning production to come out of Warner Bros.' shared superhero universe.
DC diehards are holding out for an extended cut of the film, launching websites and petitions in hopes of convincing Warner Bros. to release a cut shepherded by original director Zack Snyder.
Next out from the DCEU is the Jason Momoa-lead Aquaman, in theaters this December, followed by Shazam! in April 2019. Warner Bros. is readying the Wonder Woman sequel for November 2019, and War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is working on The Batman.
Justice League will be released as a collectors edition steelbook boasting art from DC Comics veteran Jim Lee and hits 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on March 13.0comments
