There have been several story gaps in the DCEU throughout the years, which have irritated fans. What’s even more amazing is that most of these wouldn’t have been feasible if the characters hadn’t acted so stupidly. These personalities have done their fair amount of rash actions that have resulted in the loss of life and ruin.
In some other instances, their decisions and thoughts were simply too ridiculous, to begin with, and it’s hard to believe they ever thought they were acceptable. Below are the moments when the DCEU characters made the utmost poorest choice in the DC flicks.
#1 Amanda Waller believes it is a good idea to enlist the help of a centuries-old demonic being for her team.
This was all Waller’s fault since she thought it would be a good idea to capture a demonic being over whom she has no real control and which she has no idea how to confine. As anticipated, the whole affair blows up in her face, and she subsequently needs to enlist the help of Bruce Wayne to protect her when her actions become public.
#2 Monster T Objectifies The Joker’s Girlfriend Right To His Face
In other words, Monster T believes there’s nothing wrong with informing a psychopath that he’s objectifying his similarly insane fiancée in front of him. As one might anticipate, the Joker is enraged by this lack of respect and shoots Monster T in the face.
#3 Despite the fact that Darkseid is aware of the existence of the Anti-Life Equation, he makes no attempt to remember its location.
As his main objective has always been to locate the Anti-Life Equation, Darkseid might have spared himself many centuries if he had simply elected to note the position of Earth way back when, but he chose not to keep track of the place where he had discovered it.
#4 Superman does not just tell Batman about his mother but instead fights him pointlessly.
Given how simple it was for the two of them to be on the same page, Superman made a poor move by fighting Batman when he could have just stated his problem from the start. Instead, the Kryptonite Batman used weakens him to the point that he can’t battle Doomsday at full power, and he dies as a result.
#5 After Robin’s death, Batman doesn’t mind taking lives, yet he still doesn’t kill the Joker when he has the chance.
When the Joker murders the Boy Wonder after capturing him, Batman’s plot to send Robin to spy on him fails. As a result, Bruce has become a hardened individual who isn’t afraid to kill. He then tracks down the Joker and uses his fangs to beat him to a pulp. However, for whatever reason, he decides not to finish off the Joker, and later expresses sorrow for not doing so.
#6 Even though Batman knows Superman isn’t evil, he still decides to kill him.
Even though Superman is plainly not a horrible guy, Batman lays the stage for his downfall. Following Superman’s defeat, Batman expresses guilt and thinks he committed a huge error. Instead of triggering the death of the one man who might safeguard the Earth from creatures like Darkseid and Doomsday, he should’ve thought about it sooner.
#7 Even if it makes no difference, Batman intends to use himself as bait.
In the 2017 film Justice League, Batman abandons the rest of the League to embark on a dangerous mission, directing the Parademons toward himself so that the rest of the team may ambush Steppenwolf and separate the Mother Boxes. The League, on the other hand, ends up aiding him nonetheless, with Steppenwolf’s intentions having little effect. This implies Batman opted to die for no purpose, and his scheme actually alerted Steppenwolf of the league’s impending arrival, rendering the whole thing pointless.
#8 Even though no one knows who they are, Jonathan tells Clark not to save his life.
Jonathan made a stupid decision since they were on the highway, surrounded by complete strangers who had no idea who Clark or any of his family members were. Clark might have also utilized his super speed to whisk his father away from the prying eyes, ensuring that his secret remained protected. Jonathan, on the other hand, dies, leaving his wife and adolescent son to fend for themselves.
#9 Amanda Waller has power over The Flash and Batman, yet she chooses to put together a team of idiots.
Waller believes that sending Deadshot (a man who can only shoot), Harley Quinn (a woman who can only use a bat), Captain Boomerang (a man who throws boomerangs), Killer Croc (an otherwise useless cannibal), and Slipknot (a man whose “power” is to climb) to face a demonic being like Enchantress, against whom none of the team’s skills are effective, is a smart option.
#10 Wonder Woman refuses to give up her wish to keep Steve alive, even if it means destroying the world.
Diana is the only one who can defeat Max Lord, but she must give up her desire to reclaim her abilities. Given that the entire planet is on the verge of annihilation, it’s a foolish move on her part to refuse to give up her desire to keep Steve alive. Diana finally gives up as Steve makes the decision to leave.
#11 Deadshot Is The Most Wanted Assassin, But He Takes His Daughter Shopping
Deadshot has established himself as the most prolific assassin in the world, charging millions of dollars for a single hit. Instead of hiding, as any rational person would, he decided to go shopping with his daughter in open.
#12 Even though supervillains are common, Shazam flaunts his abilities in public.
Even though supervillains have grown more numerous and would notice him, Billy believes it is a good idea to openly showcase his new powers as Shazam. This is exactly what happens when Dr. Sivana notices Shazam demonstrating his talents and hunts him down.
#13 When Harley Quinn is right in front of Rick Flag, he doesn’t just shoot her.
Flag discovers that the nanite explosive device in Harley Quinn’s head is disabled when he attempts to activate it. Because Harley is entirely exposed and has no means to flee or protect herself, the guy doesn’t bother to shoot her with the weapon he carries. Instead, Flag just stands there and watches as Harley enters the Joker’s chopper when he could have shot her and put a stop to the entire affair right then.
#14 Even though he knows Batman is after him, the Joker goes on a joyride.
The Joker murders Robin and then goes on a joyride with Harley Quinn to commemorate the event. When Batman quickly catches up to Joker and Harley Quinn, causes their car to smash into the bay, and then arrests Harley Quinn, it is the direct result of this stupid judgment.
