Let’s face it, when it comes to the DC Universe, it’s a post-Christopher Nolan Batman world. The gauntlet was thrown down by his trilogy, particularly the second and third films that grossed over $1,000,000,000 each.

As my friends and I made the leisurely jaunt to the Tidal Basin this past Saturday, I must admit that my expectations were at an all-time high.
