Yes, it will eventually be profitable. Here's a balanced look at its box office prospects. It won't be the juggernaut that HQ fans wanted, but it won't be the crash-and-burn event that the misogynist...

We're definitely on opposite ends of the storytelling spectrum there. Movies/shows that wink at the camera are hit-and-miss for me. Films like Shazam and Ant-Man feel like fluff, and I usually only...
