In a rare moment of honesty, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes admitted that, well, Warner Bros.’ DC movies aren’t great. More specifically, he said, “We can do a little better on the creative,” the A.V. Club reports. The last two films in the franchise, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, were torn apart by critics, and Bewkes acknowledged that the characters “have a little more lightness in them than maybe what you saw in those movies, so we’re thinking about that.” However, he also reminded us that the movies are still bringing in a lot of revenue, which is kind of the point. “The main thing was to launch DC and reinvigorate it with the fan base,” he said. Turns out that honesty is a bummer. If we could get back to doing "better on the creative," though, that would be great.
