In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Smith spoke about why he believes that the DC TV shows on the CW and elsewhere do better with fans than the DC movies. According to him, it’s because of the writers.

He said: “It has nothing to do with the characters themselves or how they interact with the social consciousness or whether they’re relevant still or not. A good writer will turn anything into a watchable concept. Some of the DC movies have had a hard time catching an audience. The stories haven’t been as satisfying. When you’re doing a DC television show, such as Supergirl or The Flash, you don’t have two hours to tell your story. You have 22 hours to tell a long story… They get more time there.
