Taika Waititi doesn't know how to do comedy?

I think it's actually pretty damn funny. Hell, if you'd met an old guy on the street claiming he's the head of the Norse Pantheon, wouldn't the first thing on your mind be "Yeeeaaah, this guy had way too much quaalude to drink."
It would have been funny. If handled by someone who knows how to do comedy. Yet expect the typical juvenile Michael Bay style humor from this movie.

Yeah. We just have to see the movie to find out, I really WANT this movie to be good. Also the rest of Phase 3 since it really started with a bang in my opinion.

Apparently Dolph Lundgren will be in the flashbacks of season five. I'm not happy because this means:

1 - I'm going to have to watch season five.
2 - I'm going to have to watch the flashbacks.

God damn you, Arrow.
Dolph should have been The Russian for the new Punisher series. He's wasted here. Then again wasting things is what Arrow does best.

If budget is all there is then the MCU would be floundering. DC's problem is putting too many characters in at once without providing any sense of character development to have the audience care about the characters. For instance, the biggest criticism with DOJ was cramming too many characters in one movie instead of focusing on the two characters who should have mattered. The lack of optimism is another problem with that movie but that is another subject entirely.

And not broadening their audience is another problem. You praise DC for catering to the comic crowd but let's face facts. The comic crowd hates DC's movies too. And the small minority who likes their films regardless of the flaws doesn't change that. Especially since, the way they're making the movies, is alienating its audience. What made the tv shows, sans Arrow, work is that it tries to cater to both the comic crowd and the general audience. The TV Universe tells the general audience who the characters are without reading the comics while it still keeps the spirit of the characters intact. They also manage to blend drama and humor pretty well without insulting the audience's intelligence.

What made the MCU and even its Netflix shows work is because it bothers to cater to both the comic crowd and it's general audience, while not being afraid to try different things with its characters. Even though they could have tried harder with the villains.

So the DCEU's problems are more complex than just the budget and saying that it hasn't alienated it's audience is ignorant thinking IMO.

  I'd say it's more of an over simplification than a fact. An incredibly unconventional way to tackle a film, sure, but that just goes back to my original point that what DC's doing won't reach as broad an audience as their budgets demand. So either they need to cut costs or stop making comic book movies and start making action comedies with comic book characters in them.
