The DCEU hasn't offered a lot of films just yet, given that they're on the brink of introducing a new universe to moviegoers, versus MCU which is coming to a close with their "Avengers" saga. Last year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" was very polarizing, pitting comic book fans against film fans and many others who saw the film.

"Justice League" was negatively received with its 25% Rotten Tomatoes rating, versus the 27% Rotten Tomatoes rating of "Batman v Superman." But things might start to turn around, with "Wonder Woman" earning over $800 million worldwide.

"Batman v Superman" earned well over $800 million as well, but the difference lies here: "Wonder Woman" was well-received by fans and moviegoers, with a 92% Rotten Tomatoes rating.

Things may start to look up for DCEU with "Wonder Woman" and this year's "Justice League," which takes a page from the MCU's often humorous approach to superhero storytelling. So where does that leave "Justice League?" For one, the film is set to receive a sequel, which at the moment doesn't have a release date set in stone just yet. However, "Justice League 2" just received its director.

Film enlists Gavin O'Connor as director

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is enlisting the talents of director Gavin O’Connor to helm the upcoming "Suicide Squad 2." The previous film was directed by David Ayer, who is focusing his efforts on developing "Gotham City Sirens" with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.

O'Connor previously worked with DCEU actor Ben Affleck on "The Accountant," which succeeded in terms of the box office.
