    1. WatchMojo.com they don’t always fail. 2 examples. 1 wreck it ralph, 2 player one. Both were awesome movies.wreck it Ralph was so good that they have made and are releasing a sequel. So, sorry. But you are way wrong.

    2. Wreck It Ralph ,Ready Player One and Tron Are successful video games movies. If DC is smart they should do a Injustice God Among Us Animated series by Studio Mir or Greg Weismen.
