Watch this end up being the best DC Universe film.
Looks like they're going for a goofier tone and with the random obscure characters they're picking they're gonna have fun with it. Way more appealing than the dark, serious DC films with the grim colour palettes.

This will be an interesting experiment, but I'm not sure how to interpret the outcome if the film is bad.
Apparently Marvel's approach is a bit 'design by committee' at times, where they even have a specific team help workout big action sequences with directors. This is meant to be one of the reasons they're happy using directors who haven't done big budget action films before.
If this fails does it mean that individual Marvel directors actually don't matter too much - as it's the teams behind the screens that are the real talent, and Gunn isn't as talented as it seems - or will it just be an example that DC get in their own way and can't consistently make hits, even with a proven writer/director.
