Warner Bros Are Getting That Reset Button Ready For The DC Extended Universe

Published

When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, they’ve seen more bad than good. While Wonder Woman gained universal praise, the rest of their films have suffered. Now, there’s word of them pushing that reset button on everything. So, what exactly went wrong with this once promising universe?

Can I Copy Your Homework?

One of the biggest issues involves the DC Extended Universe as a whole. With the immense success of Marvel Studios, they want to have that same kind of universe. Instead of simply spreading things out over time, they jumbled most of it in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The swift introduction of the Justice League in the film left many unsatisfied.

Top Stars Out?

Easily one of the biggest stories this year involved Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Both actors are rumored to walk away from their respective roles of Batman and Superman. Affleck’s possible exit stings a bit more for the franchise. He was slated to direct The Batman, but he stepped away from directing duties last year.

Quietly Resetting Everything

Seeds of a possible reset were secretly planted with Joaquin Phoenix’s involvement in Todd Phillips’ Joker film. Taking place in the ’80s, this origin story won’t be connected to the movie universe. Recently, there have been rumors of the Supergirl origin film being set in the ’70s. No director is attached to that project yet.

Sifting Out The Problems

With this reset, you can expect a vast majority of films to still go forward. Certain films, however, will be up in the air. With the current Cavill situation, the Man of Steel sequel will certainly be put on hold.  If he and Affleck can’t agree to terms, we might see new people taking the place. For a reset, it could be refreshing. Depending on how Aquaman does in the box office, its sequel can be in jeopardy.

The Show Must Go On

The upcoming Wonder Woman, Shazam, and Suicide Squad films won’t be affected by this reset. Their respective spinoffs, including Gotham City Sirens and a Deadshot film, will also be secured. Moving away from a shared universe will allow DC Films to breathe on their own. While they had the best intentions, rushing this kind of thing led to confusion with fans. With a clean slate, they’ll be ready to deliver amazing storylines for the big screen.
