Fans Of the DCEU Argue Whether Or Not It Needs To Be a Cinematic Universe

What is the difference between a cinematic universe and a film series that occasionally crosses over? Based on how often the notion of a common mythology has been canceled, restarted, discontinued, and resurrected, the answer is when it’s Warner Bros.’ DCEU.

Snyder connected Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League together, even if it took him years to deliver his own spin on the film. Wonder Woman was a prequel that presented its own narrative while also including a few tangential connections David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has all but been debunked as canon, Aquaman paid much heed to what happened outside of Atlantis, and Shazam! turned a fanboy into a superhero.

Since then, we’ve seen Joker and The Batman stand on their own two feet, but are the dots about to start connecting again? Black Adam and Shazam! will surely lead to a confrontation between the title characters The Flash and Batgirl are both part of the original DCEU continuity, as is Blue Beetle.

However, DC diehards on Reddit have been wondering whether or not it’s worthwhile to continue down the path of connective tissue after everything that’s happened on-screen, off-screen, and behind-the-scenes over the last decade.

While some excellent points are made, Marvel Studios established the standard for a reason, and it’s one that every other studio in Hollywood is trying to follow. The notion of a recurring theme is that the MCU was formed from characters who were perceived B-stardom such as Iron Man, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man, who general audiences didn’t have much investment in, which allowed Kevin Feige to shape them however he wanted in the eyes of the moviegoing public.

The Trinity was brought back into the DCEU’s second-ever feature, which divided audience and fell short of expectations. It’s an intriguing debate that no one could possibly reach a consensus on.
