Warner Bros.

made some adjustments to the Justice League movie to ensure it is positively received. This was in direct response to the negative criticism the studio got for both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad last year.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Warner Bros. decreed the movie to be a crowd pleaser.

The CEO of the studio, Kevin Tsujihara, wanted to make sure the movie is under 2 hours long comparable to the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

This is shorter than the 2.5 hour long movies of Wonder Woman, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Much like Wonder Woman though, the studio also mandated that Justice League has a lighter tone.

Many people criticized the dark tone of both Batman v Superman and Man of Steel. Fans were not used to seeing a depressed version of Superman before.

Test screenings for Justice League have gone well so far so this is a positive step. The studio also made sure the film is tonally consistent throughout.

After all, both Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon have directed the movie. It appears the film will feel like one person's vision and not two movies put into one.

It's also worth mentioning the movie is one of the most expensive ones to be made in 2017. The report says the movie cost close to $300 million to make.

With lots of special effects and a big cast, this is to be expected.

The Justice League movie is expected to dominate the Box Office this November. If all goes well and everyone loves the movie, it could gross north of over $1 billion worldwide.
