According to DC's head creative officer Geoff Johns, much of that positive outlook stems from the fact that DC Entertainment-the branch of Warner Bros. that handles DC's comic book properties-is working much more closely with Warner Bros. proper in shaping its films.
When word came out earlier today about Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's revamped take on their cinematic universe, you may have noticed that we didn't refer to it as the DC Extended Universe, or "DCEU", in our article. It's not going away altogether, but more so they're easing the DCEU's restrictiveness, to let their filmmakers play outside of that often-serious sandbox.
"But there's no insistence upon an overall story line or interconnectivity in that universe".
Of course, it seemed to make sense. Sure, making things make sense is part of a storyteller's job, but an artist's ability to do that shouldn't be inhibited by anything but their own imagination.
"The movie's not about another movie", said Johns. The entire story is a great read, but the biggest news is that DC is taking away a key lesson from the success of Wonder Woman: Going forward, the studio will be downplaying its cinematic universe and letting the standalone films, well, stand alone.
"Moving forward, you'll see the DC movie universe being a universe, but one that comes from the heart of the filmmaker who's creating them", Nelson continued. Justice League is on the way to tie things together, but so is a solo Batman movie that has, at times, sounded pretty far outside of what's going on with everything else. "But, like with Aquaman, our goal is not to connect Aquaman to every movie".
Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's comic book-themed films continue on November 17 with Justice League, which stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
