Ranking the DCEU

The Suicide Squad is the first movie in the DC Extended Universe since Birds of Prey more than a year ago. Although I’m not a huge fan of the series I have seen all of them (except Justice League Synder’s Cut) so I thought I’d share my thoughts on the series with a ranking.

10. Batman vs Superman:

What should’ve been cool ended up being another disappointing edgy film. Lex Luthor was badly casted and the Martha thing was dumb.

9. Suicide Squad:

This won an Oscar? The enchantress is a very unfitting villain and is was just too moody and not fun.

8. Justice League:

Being overshadowed by the Avengers wasn’t its only problem. There was also the generic doomsday villain and the tone problem.

7. Wonder Woman 1984: I didn’t really feel the 80s in this movie. Felt too long and too silly especially in the mall scene.  

6. Man of Steel: I do like Han Zimmer’s score An Ideal of Hope but this way too edgy and violent for a movie about the symbol of hope.

5.Wonder Woman:

It does its job fine. It could’ve had a nice lesson about the grey morality of humans but then Ares showed up and made it so black and white.

4. Aquaman: This one kind of grew on me. Rupert Gregson-Williams’s score is catchy and the costumes and underwater scenes are vibrantly colorful.

3. Birds of Prey:

While the other members were weak, Margot Robbie was great as Harley; the action was fun and I liked how enjoyably evil the villain was.

2. Shazam!:

There’s only two DCEU movies I would consider really good. After movies that were too dark and edgy this was a lighthearted breath of fresh air thanks to Zachary Levi’s performance as Shazam.

1. The Suicide Squad:

This is the perfect example of learning from your mistakes. James Gunn managed to give us a proper Suicide Squad movie full of wonderful characters, awesome action and the charm of the Guardians movies.
