The New 52! – Part 2

So – here’s the next part of my look back at The New 52! I’ve noticed that in the second volumes the quality really varies. Sometimes it absolutely shines – sometimes it doesn’t.

Question is now – who’s going to direct? I’m thinking of Dennis Villeneuve. Could also be a good time for Justin Lin to step in?

This is a blow – but I’m still really looking forward to the film.

You guys got any suggestions?
