Warner Bros. Head Praises 'Aquaman,' Says Good Movies Work Better

But when Toby Emmerich was asked to elaborate on those backroom changes, the executive kept the focus exclusively on Aquaman, which he describes as a "bridge movie" in that it connects to the wider DC movie universe while still being its own separate beast. "He's a franchise maker and builder", Emmerich said. Let us know in the comments down below! William Goldman wrote my favorite book on moviemaking, Adventures in the Screen Trade, and he wrote, 'make movies with people you like, because it's really hard, so it's easier if you really like them.' And we really like James. You can, as always, drop your own thoughts and box office predictions in the usual place below. Emmerich wanted everyone to know that he didn't pick the date and that they want to release the movie as soon as possible. Kids are closer to the zeitgeist, everything is a raw nerve ending, they pick up on so many cultural subtleties it constantly blows my mind. And Aquaman is the upcoming film they're all hoping will do it.

In the end, Emmerich recognizes that quality is more important than quantity or brand-recognition.

After a promising start with 2013's Man Of Steel, thinks quickly went downhill with the critically maligned duo of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, and while Wonder Woman was able to restore some credibility to the DCEU, the messy Justice League only reaffirmed its position as one of the lesser superhero cinematic universes. The studio is committed to making high quality films. "I think the good movies work better", he replied. "Somebody once said the best business strategy in motion pictures is quality". There have been executive departures, and a shift in the company's approach to future superhero titles following the release of last fall's Justice League (which despite racking up $657 million, was the least successful of all the DC Extended Universe titles and was slammed by critics). So when you have a director you really like, and who likes you as a company and a culture, it's a happier experience and, more often than not, a better movie. You can't hide the bacon anymore. "Now when you're talking about art, I do believe that it's tough to judge art at the moment when its presented to the world". Twenty years after Sgt. Pepper or Born to Run comes out, then you can understand what that album was. Make better movies. "I think the good movies work better", Emmerich says. I guess when I say "quality", I don't want to judge anybody's movies completely at the moment of release.

I think the good movies work better. And I do think Aquaman will sync up with the global culture zeitgeist of what's happening right now. It's an expensive movie.

While Aquaman will be a standalone movie in nearly every way, "there is still the connective tissue to the DC movies". Whether or not already established DC Comics heroes will appear in the film hasn't yet been revealed.
