TIME TRAVEL, GREEK MYTHOLOGY & MORE: DCEU IS GEARING UP TO PUSH THINGS OVER THE TOP

Published

on

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ if nothing more, was a major foreshadowing of things to come for the DCEU. Director Zack Snyder was the first to clarify after backlash about the involvement of Doomsday so early in the franchise by saying:

“Well, you have Doomsday, right? He doesn’t just crawl out of the ground. He has his own mythology, right? So that has to be explored. To us it really made sense to give him to the audience now. I really wanted to make the audience a promise that… though I’m super excited and happy and fulfilled by the conflict of Batman and Superman, there’s also a bigger world to start to think about.”

Snyder also went on to speak about the direction of the DCEU:

“It is constantly evolving, but we’re starting to get a handle on where we’re going with the world. That’s fun because it allows us now to be driving toward a goal that we don’t have to make up as much. The rules can be the rules, and the movie can exist in a closed universe… it allows us to tie things together. If there’s a movie over here doing this, and we’re over here doing this, now we’re all on the same page. It allows for a coherent universe, which is important. I think that makes the experience a little more satisfying because we know where we’re going, so the misdirects can be stronger and the reveals can be bigger.”

DCEU movies originally seemed to be taking the path of “Grounded in reality.” The Christopher Nolan ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy established a Batman, who existed in a world of rules, without Superman and rules that could not be broken for the most part. Now it would appear that DC for sure isn’t going to continue in that direction. In fact it seems like they plan to do the exact opposite and beyond.

Upcoming DCEU films

These images reveal just some of the ungrounded reality that awaits the DC Extended Universe. Everything from immortal beings, soul swallowing swords, intergalactic police and even the possibility of greek mythology. That’s right, Greek Mythology! Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta who were engaged in combat and ultimately ended up conceiving Diana. Diana was later told she was created from clay to conceal her true identity from Zeus’s wife.

DCEU has also hinted at time travel being a factor in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.

“You were right about him!”

I personally loved ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ I think it’s refreshing to see a different type of superhero film. Especially after recently seeing ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which I enjoyed, but felt it wasn’t much different from any other “Avenger” based film. Both franchises appear to have their place in cinema. I believe that both will benefit from each other by keeping one cinematic style or the other from getting played out. I’m definitely interested to see just how far over the top DCEU will take these stories, considering they’ve tried to take the darker more level approach to their universe.
