DCEU

WILL GREEK GODS BE FEATURED IN THE DCEU?

Published

on

After writing my last entry about about the possibility of DCEU “Taking things over the top” I started to wonder. What are the chances of Greek Mythology actually spilling into the DC Cinematic Universe? Greek Mythology has always been one of my favorite topics. And since Diana Prince has been revealed to be the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, the floodgate of possibilities for future movies has been opened.

Of course,  Marvel has already traveled this path, bringing Norse Mythology into the MCU. Going as far to include Thor directly into their storylines. Even though there are some slight changes to the mythology. Marvel has morphed the idea of Asgardiansbeing Gods to the idea that they are an advanced alien civilization that has a firm grip on science and the technology to prolong life.

 In 2011 DC Comics relaunched as the “New 52” which made Zeus a prominent figure in the Wonder Woman Universe. Originally Diana was told she was made of clay. But later was revealed to be the daughter of Zeus. DC Comics even went so far as to have Zeus interact with heroes of the Universe.

It raises the question, will DC make an attempt to incorporate Greek Gods into future films? I for one think it would be interesting. The problem is, how do you incorporate them, without making them omnipotent. Marvel has the right formula by making them advanced aliens. DC can’t copycat that formula, otherwise I feel it will only come off as an attempt to move in the direction of Marvel, that won’t be met well by fans.

There are some great story arcs though, that could fuel the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman:

All in all, I think it would be awesome. And could make for some interesting movie dialogue. One way I could see this working, is to have Zeus stand by one of his major rules, which is, Gods do not interfere in the affairs of Mankind (Even though they Do). So the Gods could be witnessing all the terrible things happening on Earth via Steppenwolf and Darkseid but will never intervene.

Do you think Greek Gods should make an appearance in the DCEU?

Zack Snyder Talks “Entering The SnyderVerse” | Justice League 2021

Published

on

Zack Snyder’s excitement about restoring his ‘Justice League’ film to its original glory, is fueling a fire for fans that won’t be extinguished until 2021. Zack has recently shared some of his thoughts on the upcoming film and has allowed small tidbits of insight as to what we can expect from his redirection of the superhero flick. Snyder believes, his Justice League can exist in its own universe and could potentially continue on, in its very own continuity.

“I believe that it really starts to represent its own path. It’s kind of separate now from what I’d say the DC Cinematic Universe is in-continuity. It’s divergent in that way and I think that’s a good thing. The power of DC and one of its cool strengths is its multiverse concept and where they put filmmakers first and go ‘We want to hear your individual voices.

Take these characters and do a run and show us what you would do with a run in the sense of traditional comic book writing,’ so I thinkthat that is a cool and amazing canvas. For me, I think Justice League…you know, I’ve heard some someone say like ‘Oh, so you’re entering the SnyderVerse now.”

We truly have “Entered the Snyder-Verse,” as fans of Zack Snyder’s work have pooled their collective voices together with the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement, pulling of one of the greatest feats of all time! Now HBO Max has green-lit Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League. The film will boast over a 214 min runtime and a budget of $30+ Mill for reshoots and new scenes.

In a recent interview, Snyder teased, that he may release a short clip from the upcoming film:

“I may show a clip. And it is a small clip,” Snyder has teased. “It may be a small clip, And also maybe there’s another tiny little announcement, just a little thing, for the fans. The clip is…that’s gonna be fun.”

As the internet catches its collective breath, after hearing official news that ‘Zack Snyder’s: Justice League’ is coming to HBO Max in 2021. Fans can now start to anticipate tidbits as to what we can expect from this new interpretation of Justice League.

Snyder, has started assuring fans, that his film isn’t just a standard “Directors cut,” but will in fact be an almost entirely different movie. Warner Bros. and HBO Max are shelling out an estimated $20-30 mill that will help extend cast member contracts and insure we see an entirely different version. Snyder recently spoke to Hollywood Reporter and shed some light on the project:

“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did,”

Snyder, went on to further separate his vision from what Joss Whedon brought to the screen:

“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,”

Snyder recently took to social media, to drop a new official image of Uxas aka Darkseid.
