We miss you, Captain Jim.
Isn't fault language and sex minor problems compared to violence? Teenager will have sex regardless of media they have been doing so for thousands of years only difference is more and more people gets to choose whom they want to sleep with. Educating teenager about birth control is a much better and safer route to go than indirectly censuring media with a rating system. I believe that when media is tabooing sex then it also tabooing sex in the society. It doesn't prevent it for happening it only prevents people from talking about which is counter productive. Simply sing an out of sight out of mind tactic.
Yes I think they've gone the wrong way, in so much their universe at present come off at its core as an attempt by corporate Hollywood to reverse engineer an auteur's vision and mass produce it.
I know it's a different medium but CW Flash shows that you can have a DC hero with personal drama, life or death situations and have the characters be "fun" at the same time. It's understandable that WB/DC wants to differentiate themselves from Marvel. The problem is that some of us fear is that by making their universe more "grounded" it'll lead to making every character into a walking pile "my life is misery". Don't get me wrong I have no problem with darker stuff but there are people who think the DC movies are gonna become this: tumblr_nqv9r4cKWG1se4sm5o1_1280.jpg My point is that the variety of characters DC have is the best way to define the universe their in. Some are at the dark end of the spectrum, some are at the light and then there are those who are in between the two. Having them all in the grim and gritty side is gonna turn people off.

I might not like some of the new DC stuff personally, but I like that Convergence brought back the infinite Earths back because 52 alternate universes seems limiting.
