The contemporary taste for "serious" entertainment

Like superhero movies and stuff

I do not entirely understand it, in large part because nobody did it better than the DCAU to me and because half the time it's not even pulled off that well (Harvey Dent becoming Two-Face in The Dark Knight literally made less sense to me than it did in BTAS)

    What I meant is people want these things to be serious
  • kill living beings

    also yeah more people have seen the dark knight than cartoons, i'm sure.

    Suicide Squad had tons of jokes, and nerds still utterly pissed their pants with furious anger at how grimdark it was

    Of course I'm one of those people who prefers animation to live-action most of the time, and the DCAU is the reason I feel like the fucking "DC Universe" Warner Bros. is slinging at us is a doomed voyage if they keep focusing on Bats and Supes and Batsy's rogues
