The DC Extended Universe (DCEU)[1][2][3][4] is an unofficial term used to refer to an American media franchise and shared universe that is centered on a series of superhero films, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and based on characters that appear in American comic books by DC Comics. The shared universe, much like the original DC Universe in comic books and the television programs, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters. The films have been in production since 2011 and in that time Warner Bros. has distributed five films with more than twenty in various stages of production. The series has grossed over $3.7 billion at the global box office, currently making it the twelfth highest-grossing film franchise.

The films are written and directed by a variety of individuals and feature large, often ensemble, casts. Several actors, including Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher, have appeared in numerous films of the franchise, with continued appearances in sequels planned. In May 2016, DC's chief creative officer Geoff Johns and Warner Bros. executive vice president Jon Berg were appointed to co-run the DC Films division and oversee creative decisions, production and story-arcs in order to create a cohesive overarching plot within the films. In January 2018, Walter Hamada was appointed the president of DC Films, replacing Berg.

The first film in the DCEU was Man of Steel (2013), which was followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Suicide Squad (2016), Wonder Woman (2017) and Justice League (2017). Future films with scheduled release dates include: Aquaman (2018), Shazam! (2019), Wonder Woman 2 (2019), Cyborg (2020) and Green Lantern Corps (2020). Other projects with confirmed titles that are also in various stages of development: Batgirl, The Batman, Black Adam, Flashpoint, Gotham City Sirens, Justice League Dark, Nightwing, and Suicide Squad 2. In addition, films focusing on the Birds of Prey, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Harley Quinn,[5] Harley Quinn and the Joker, and Lobo, as well as sequels to Justice League and Man of Steel are also in active development.

Development

In 2002, Wolfgang Petersen was set to direct a Batman vs. Superman film from a script by Akiva Goldsman.[6] Warner Bros. canceled development to focus on individual Superman and Batman projects after J. J. Abrams submitted another draft for Superman: Flyby.[7][8] In February 2007, Warner Bros. hired husband and wife duo Michele and Kieran Mulroney to write a script for a Justice League film.[9] Christian Bale, who starred as Batman in Batman Begins (2005), was not approached to reprise the role,[10] nor was Brandon Routh, who starred as Superman in Superman Returns (2006).[11] George Miller was hired to direct the film,[12] reportedly titled Justice League Mortal,[13] with Armie Hammer cast as Batman, D. J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as Flash, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Common as Green Lantern, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord.[14] The project was put on indefinite hold in January 2008, after failing to secure tax breaks for filming in Australia, as well as the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike preventing progress on the script.[15]

In 2013, a reboot of the Superman franchise, Man of Steel, was set to lay the groundwork for future DC films.[16] The film contained references to other characters in the DC Universe, so if it were a success, it could launch a shared universe.[17][18] Days before Man of Steel's release in June, it was reported that director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer would be returning for a sequel, which was being fast-tracked by Warner Bros.[19] In July, at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that the sequel would include Batman in a main role, thus establishing the shared universe.[20][21] In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced a slate of ten DC films.[22]

Geoff Johns, co-runner of the DCEU and co-head of DC Films studio
with Jon Berg (2016-2017) and Walter Hamada (2017-present)

Upon announcement, the universe was commonly called the "DC Cinematic Universe" by fans and the media, in keeping with the naming convention of the already established Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).[23][24][25] Keith Staskiewicz, writing for Entertainment Weekly, coined the term "DC Extended Universe™" as a joke on an article of his about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on July 1, 2015. This and the abbreviation DCEU quickly spread among the press and fans thinking of it as the official name of the franchise over the following years.[26][4] According to Vulture writer Abraham Riesman‏, DC confirmed to him in September 2017 that the term is not used internally and they do not consider it official.[27] While the MCU includes television productions, the DCEU is a shared continuity for films. Several television series featuring DC characters and storylines have their own shared continuity, frequently referred to as the Arrowverse.[28] DC's chief creative officer Geoff Johns explained DC's difference in approach to Marvel Studios and their cinematic universe, saying, "We look at it as the multiverse. We have our TV universe and our film universe, but they all co-exist. For us, creatively, it’s about allowing everyone to make the best possible product, to tell the best story, to do the best world. Everyone has a vision and you really want to let the visions shine through ... It's just a different approach."[29] In June 2015, Warner Bros. president of creative development Greg Silverman expanded on DC's approach to their cinematic universe, saying, "We ... take these beloved characters and put them in the hands of master filmmakers and make sure they all coordinate with each other. You'll see the difference when you see ... the things that we are working on."[30]

In May 2016, following criticism of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. established a DC Films division with Geoff Johns and Warner Bros. executive vice president Jon Berg as its heads,[31] which oversees production to form a cohesive creative direction for the franchise.[32][33] DC Films will not be fully autonomous, with Johns reporting to DC president Diane Nelson and Berg reporting to Silverman.[32] Charles Roven was also moved from his day-by-day producer role on future DC films, which he had served since 2005's Batman Begins, to an administrative executive producer role.[34] In December, Silverman was ousted from his role in Warner Bros., and Toby Emmerich was promoted to president and chief content officer, in his place.[35] Later in 2016, as part of DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League!, both Geoff Johns and Kevin Smith referred to the franchise's name as being the "Justice League Universe".[2] As of January 2017, Johns and Berg report to Emmerich.[36] Following the financial and critical success of Wonder Woman in June 2017, Johns stated that moving forward the films will focus on the heart, humor, hope, heroics, and optimism of the characters.[37] In December 2017, Berg was announced to be leaving his position in January 2018 and will instead be partnering with Roy Lee.[38]

In January 2018, Walter Hamada was appointed the President of DC Films and the new co-runner of the DCEU, replacing Berg. The following month, Chantal Nong was hired as Vice President of the film studio.[39] The pair will jointly oversee the future of the franchise with Johns, as the key production team managers.

Batgirl

Matt Reeves, the director/co-producer of The Batman

The Batman

In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced that a Batman standalone film was in development, with Affleck set to reprise the role.[22] By July 2015, Affleck was in negotiations to also produce, direct and co-write the screenplay with Geoff Johns.[189] In March 2016, William Morris Endeavor's co-CEO Patrick Whitesell stated that Affleck had written a screenplay for a Batman film.[190] In April, Warner Bros. confirmed that Affleck would direct the film.[191] In May, Jeremy Irons confirmed that he was "tied into The Batman",[192] while Affleck stated that the film would borrow from the comics, but mainly be an "original story".[193] In August, Affleck teased Deathstroke on social media through test footage. Geoff Johns later revealed that the character will be played by Joe Manganiello.[194] In October, Affleck stated the intended title for the film was The Batman, adding "At least that's what we're going with now. I might change it."[195] In December, Affleck confirmed that the film was on track to begin shooting in Q1/Q2 2017.[196] Later that month, Warner Bros. executive Greg Silverman stated that the film would be released in 2018.[197] In January 2017, in an interview with The Guardian, Affleck stated that the film does not have a set script, and that he will only direct it if he feels like it will be a great movie.[198] Later that month, Affleck stepped down as director in order to more efficiently focus on starring as the eponymous role. He will continue to serve as writer, producer, and star of the film.[199] Upon Affleck's announcement, it was noted by Deadline that Chris Terrio had turned in a rewrite of the original script by Affleck and Johns.[200] In February, Warner Bros. announced the title as The Batman and that Matt Reeves would direct and co-produce the film.[201] In June, Reeves stated that the movie will focus on the detective side of the character, with a Hitchcock-influenced noir style that emphasizes seeing into Batman's mind and heart in the storytelling techniques.[202] In July, Reeves confirmed that the script was being re-written so as to be in line with his style and vision for the film.

In January 2017, it was reported that Dwayne Johnson will feature in his own film, as the anti-hero Black Adam.[133] Johnson has since revealed that Black Adam will debut in the franchise sooner than expected and that there will be a Black Adam and Superman fight in the DCEU, though he cannot state where and when.[204] In October 2017, it was announced that Adam Sztykiel was hired as screenwriter for the film, titled Black Adam, with the report stating that Johnson will act as co-producer with Hiram Garcia, in their Seven Bucks Productions studio.[205] In December, Johnson mentioned in an interview that the studio had a plan for splitting Shazam into two movies, saying "I think they've got a great plan over there with him and I wish those guys the best of luck," Johnson said. "We had to split the idea because the obvious idea was Black Adam and Shazam. So we split it. Those guys are gonna do great with it."[206]

John Francis Daley, co-director (with Jonathan Goldstein) of Flashpoint

Flashpoint

In July 2013, it was reported that Greg Berlanti, who is involved with The CW's The Flash series, was developing a Flash film for Warner Bros.[207] In October 2014, The Flash was announced, and that Ezra Miller would portray the Barry Allen incarnation of the character.[22][71] In April 2015, a story treatment for the film was being written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.[208] The studio was also courting the duo to direct, but signed Seth Grahame-Smith as screenwriter and director in October after scheduling conflicts with Lord and Miller.[209] Grahame-Smith dropped out due to creative differences in April 2016, but the studio retained his script.[210] In June, Rick Famuyiwa was hired to direct the film.[211] The following month, Kiersey Clemons was cast as Iris West.[212] By August, it was revealed that Ray Fisher would reprise his role as Victor Stone / Cyborg in the movie.[213] In September, Billy Crudup was cast as Barry's father, Henry Allen.[214] The next month, Famuyiwa also left the project citing creative differences with the studio as the reason.[215] In January 2017, Joby Harold was hired to do a page-one rewrite of the script.[216] In May, the studio reportedly had Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, and Sam Raimi on a shortlist of possible directors for the film.[217] Later that month, Raimi and Marc Webb had withdrawn their names from the potential director position.[218] In June, TheWrap reported that Lord and Miller were again available, and in discussions to direct the film.[219] In July at San Diego Comic-Con, the title for the film was revealed to have been changed to Flashpoint,[157] based on the comic book story arc of the same name.[220] In September 2017, Deadline reported that Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman in the movie.[221] Later that month it was reported that the script was finished. Along with the script being finished, Zemeckis is still being considered by the studio, but Lord and Miller are out of the running due to both signing on to helm an adaptation of Andy Weir's novel Artemis.[222]

By November, after reaffirming the high priority of Flashpoint and the studio's expectation for The Flash to be a stand-out character in Justice League, producer Toby Emmerich stated that the studio is close to hiring a director for the latter film.[223][177] In an interview with Toronto Sun, Miller stated that though he can't state specifics, the long process of making sure that the studio gets the story right is paying off, as Flashpoint announcements will soon be released.[224] Later that month, Johns confirmed that the story of Thomas Wayne's Batman is a key element in the plot of the film.[225] Jeffrey Dean Morgan has expressed interest in reprising the role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.[226] At the ACE Comic Con, Miller later revealed that filming and production on the film will begin in the near future.[227] In February 2018, it was announced that filmmaking duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, had signed on to direct the film.[175] The studio reportedly had discussions with Ben Affleck to act as director, after Zemeckis couldn't free up his work schedule, but the former eventually passed on the opportunity as well.[228] Later that month, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Flashpoint will be one of DC Films' next adaptations to go into production.[229]

The film's plot takes place after the events of Justice League.[118]

Gotham City Sirens

In May 2016, it was reported that a Harley Quinn spin-off film, which will also feature other female villains, was in development.[230] Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Quinn, and will serve as executive producer through her newly established production company, LuckyChap Entertainment.[231] In December, David Ayer was hired to direct and produce the film, titled Gotham City Sirens, based on the comic book series, from a screenplay by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.[232] Leto will reprise his role as the Joker in the film.[233]

Justice League Dark

In January 2013, Guillermo del Toro confirmed that he was working on a film with the working title Dark Universe, based on the superhero team Justice League Dark.[234] He revealed that Dr. Alec Holland / Swamp Thing, John Constantine / Hellblazer, Jason Blood / Etrigan The Demon, Jim Corrigan / The Spectre, Nimue Inwudu / Madame Xanadu, Boston Brand / Deadman, and Zatanna Zatara would be characters in the story,[234][235] which would center around Constantine recruiting several of these characters. The film would not be an origin story, with each character already established and elements of their backstory coming into play throughout the film.[236] In November 2014, del Toro submitted the script to Warner Bros. to be reviewed.[237] In December, del Toro revealed that the film would be a part of the DC Extended Universe.[238] By June 2015, del Toro was no longer attached to the project as director.[239] In August 2016, Doug Liman was hired to direct the film, with Scott Rudin producing and Michael Gilio writing the script.[240] In May 2017, Liman dropped out as director due to scheduling conflicts.[241] After Liman's departure, Andres Muschietti was considered by the studio to helm the project,[242] but eventually turned down the offer, in favor of It Chapter 2. At the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2017, the film's title was announced to be Justice League Dark.[157] In August 2017, it was reported that Gilio's script is going to be rewritten after studio executives were underwhelmed by recent pitches from possible directors.[243] That same month, Gerard Johnstone was hired to work on the film's script.[244] Gareth Evans was also offered the role as director but passed on the project, when his pitch for the untitled Deathstroke film was accepted by the studio.[245] In December, Joseph Kahn released concept art from his rejected story pitch, via his Twitter account, showing designs for members of the team's roster, Etrigan the Demon, Zatanna, Swamp Thing, John Constantine and the Deadman.[246] That same month We Got This Covered reported that the studio is considering hiring Peter Jackson as the director of the film.[247] By February 2018, Alex Garland expressed interest in adapting Swamp Thing in a feature film.[248]

Chris McKay, the director of Nightwing

Nightwing

In February 2017, the Hollywood Reporter reported that there is a film centered on Dick Grayson / Nightwing in development, with Chris McKay and Bill Dubuque signed on as director and screenwriter respectively. In discussing what he is looking for in casting the character, McKay cited the level of physical activity the actor will have to endure, including martial arts, gymnastics and stunts as what will be required for the role. In an interview with Collider, McKay confirmed the film's title to be Nightwing. Discussing why he likes the character and signed on for the project, McKay cited the character's showman personality and background as an entertainer and expressed his excitement for depicting that in the film.[249] He later stated that he wants to introduce a complete adaptation of the character, something that hasn't been done in previous film interpretations of him before.[250] McKay explained that the director-driven approach is why he loves Warner Bros., and how the franchise is differentiating itself from other popular shared universes.[251] In an interview with Cinemablend the director confirmed that the film would acknowledge the titular character's past from the source material, including his time as a part of Haly's Circus, and also reaffirmed that the film will be a straightforward action movie with grounded realism and minimal use of CGI special effects.[252][253][254]

In November 2017, McKay announced on his Twitter profile that the script was finished, expressing his love for it, while also stating that pre-production could start as early as 2018. In the same feed, the director confirmed that the film will have an open casting call for the lead character.[255] Using his social media account, McKay stated that production news will be announced in February 2018 near Valentine's Day.[256] In February, McKay reported that the script is near its final draft, after which he will report to the studio, to further the development process. He also stated that there will be news regarding the shared universe sometime within the year.[257]

Suicide Squad 2

In March 2016, it was reported that a Suicide Squad sequel is in development.[258] In February 2017, the studio had a shortlist of potential directors for the project, including Mel Gibson, Jonathan Levine, Ruben Fleischer and Daniel Espinosa.[259][260] In March, Adam Cozad was hired to write the script.[261] Due to delays with the script, Gibson passed on the project and by July, Jaume Collet-Serra was named as the studio's first choice to be director of the sequel. Zak Penn submitted a story treatment and stated that a new script is in the process of being written.[262] Collet-Serra later dropped out of negations to direct.[263] That same month, the film was officially titled Suicide Squad 2 at San Diego Comic-Con.[157] In September 2017, Gavin O'Connor was officially hired as screenwriter and director.[264][265]

In January 2018, Variety reported that esteemed writer/producer Michael De Luca had joined the project as producer, while also confirming that Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto will each reprise their roles from the first film.[266] Later that month Joel Kinnaman revealed on his social media that he is training with Jai Courtney and Jay Hernandez, for the reprisal of their characters from the first film.[267] Suicide Squad 2 is reported to begin production in October 2018.[268]

Untitled Birds of Prey film

In November 2016, it was reported by The Wrap that a film focusing on the Birds of Prey is currently in development, with Christina Hodson signed on to the project as screenwriter. Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harleen Quinzel / Harley Quinn and also serve as producer. Multiple DC Comics' female superheroes and supervillains will reportedly feature in the movie's plot.[269][270]

By January 2018, the same source stated that the film is still in active development. It was reported that Robbie has become a fan of the Birds of Prey through their comic books and reaffirmed it to be one of three consecutive movies that she will reprise her role from Suicide Squad.[271]

Untitled Deadshot film

In December 2016, The Hollywood Reporter announced that a Deadshot solo movie is in development with Smith reprising his role as Lawton. The film was announced as a spin-off of Suicide Squad.[272]

Gareth Evans, the writer/director for the untitled Deathstroke film

Untitled Deathstroke film

In October 2017, TheWrap announced that a Deathstroke solo film is in development. Gareth Evans is in negotiations to be the screenwriter and director, with Joe Manganiello reprising his role from Justice League (2017), as Slade Wilson / Deathstroke.[273]

Originally cast as the primary villain for The Batman when Affleck was attached to the film as screenwriter/director/producer, in addition to starring as the titular character, the filmmaker released official test footage with Manganiello in costume.[274] Once Affleck stepped down as director so he could more specifically focus on his portrayal of Batman, and Reeves was hired as his replacement, the script was given a rewrite to fit the latter's style and vision for the film.[275] The role of Deathstroke as the primary villain in the movie came into question with Manganiello stating that he knew the studio's plans, but wasn't allowed to comment.[276]

Though the character's role in The Batman is currently unknown, the studio will develop a movie centered around the character after Evans impressed executives with his story pitch. Initially in the running to direct Justice League Dark, Evans presented his ideas for the film's story and convinced Warner Bros. that the film should be made.[277]

Untitled Harley Quinn film

In November 2017, Robbie stated that she will start filming scenes reprising her role from Suicide Squad sometime the following year, though it wasn't clarified which movie she will appear in first.[278] Later that month she reaffirmed that besides Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, and the Harley Quinn/Joker film, she will also appear in another movie as the character, which she has been developing as producer for over two years. Robbie stated that the film will explore the character's interactions with other female characters, and that the character is very important to the studio in the shared universe franchise.[279][5][280]

John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, the duo writers/directors/producers for the upcoming untitled Harley Quinn and the Joker film

Untitled the Joker and Harley Quinn film

In July 2017, Screen Rant reported that a film featuring the Joker and Harley Quinn was in early development. The film, a spin-off of Suicide Squad, was tentatively given the working-title of Harley Quinn vs. The Joker.[281][282] In August 2017, the film was confirmed by the studio to be in active development, with Leto and Robbie reprising their roles, though the film is now described as a "criminal love story" and is untitled. In a later report, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa were named as being in final negotiations to co-write and co-direct the film.[283] After speculation, it was later confirmed by Forbes that the untitled Harley Quinn and the Joker film is a separate project from Gotham City Sirens.[284] By September, Robbie confirmed the roles of Ficarra and Requa as writers/directors/producers for the film, as well as her role as executive producer.[285]

Untitled Justice League sequel

In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced the film as Justice League Part Two, with Snyder returning as director.[22] In June 2016, it was revealed that Justice League would be a standalone story, leaving the sequel untitled.[286] Originally scheduled to be released on June 14, 2019,[82] the film was reportedly pushed back to an unspecified date to make room for The Batman.[287] By October 2017, J.K. Simmons stated in an interview with Total Film magazine that the film is still in development, with work on a script in-progress.[288] The film was teased during the post-credits-scene of Justice League.[289] In December 2017, it was reported that there were 'no immediate plans' for Zack Snyder to direct a Justice League sequel, or any other DC films, with Snyder instead being relegated to an executive producer position. This comes after a restructuring of film production staff at Warner Bros. due to the first film's mixed reception and performance.[290]

Untitled Lobo film

Warner Bros. announced in September 2009 that a feature film focusing on the DC Comics character Lobo was in development. That same year, Deadline reported that Guy Ritchie would direct the film, and that production would begin in early 2010. His "irreverent, gruff tone" from his previous work would be utilized for the adaptation, though the studio was aiming for a PG-13 rating from the MPAA.[291] In their coverage of the film's development, Variety described the film's premise as: "Lobo is a seven-foot tall, gray-skinned, indestructible, and heavily muscled antihero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenage girl to stop the creatures."[291] However, by 2010 Ritchie left the project to pursue a sequel to his box-office hit, Sherlock Holmes and the film was put on hold.[292][293][294] By April 2012, Brad Peyton had signed on as writer and director, with Dwayne Johnson entering negotiations to play the titular character in July.[295] By the next year, Johnson had signed on to portray Black Adam in the shared universe, withdrawing from the running to play Lobo.[296][297]

In March 2016, it was reported that Jason Fuchs was working on a re-write of the screenplay.[298] In June of the same year, the screenwriter confirmed that the character would be portrayed as he was in the original comic book story arcs.[299] By February 2018, Michael Bay was considered by the studio to direct the film , as the studio hopes to release the movie before Peyton's schedule allows.[300][301] Bay reportedly made notes regarding the script and Fuchs is working on a script re-write to lessen the budget, as the current draft has the possibility of costing $200 million to produce. Once the final draft of the script is turned in, final negotiations between Bay and Warner Bros. will take place, and the studio will begin active development on production.[301] Later that month, Fuchs stated that getting the depiction and tone of the character correct, is as important as Wonder Woman was. He revealed that the script he is writing draws inspiration from the work that Keith Giffen and Alan Grant had done with the character.[302]

Untitled Man of Steel sequel

In October 2014, Warner Bros. announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was in development, with Cavill set to reprise the role.[22] In September 2016 Cavill's manager, Dany Garcia, confirmed that the movie is actively being made.[303] In November, Amy Adams stated that work had begun on the screenplay.[304] In September 2017, Matthew Vaughn confirmed he is in discussions with the studio to direct the film.[305][306] By December at the ACE Comic Con, Henry Cavill was quoted saying that the film is still in active development. Later that month Mark Millar stated that Vaughan had discussed working on the as-of-yet untitled film together, though no official Warner Bros. announcement has been released. Millar acknowledged that years ago before the release of Man of Steel, the pair had pitched a trilogy of Superman films to the studio, emphasizing the importance of the titular hero's characterization in a film adaptation.[307]

Additional material

The "Communion" scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teases the events in Justice League, showing Steppenwolf and the three Mother Boxes.

In order to expand and build the universe the films are set in, some additional material has been released, such as additional scenes or bonus material included in the home releases of the films. The purpose of said material is also to setup and tease the overarching narrative that future installments of the franchise will adhere to. In the case of additional scenes, on March 28, 2016, Warner Brothers released to the public via its YouTube channel, a scene not shown in theaters for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, titled "Communion", which teased the events that would be depicted in Justice League; the scene was later integrated in the Ultimate Edition home release of the film. Similarly, in the Blu-ray disc home release of Wonder Woman, an epilogue is included in the form of a short titled "Etta's Mission", which details a final incident that transpired after the events of the film, further revealing the direction of the storyline of the DC Extended Universe.

Although not all the films in the franchise resort to this practice, some of them make use of post-credits scenes to further develop character relationships and establish the plot elements that will influence future installments, such as Suicide Squad and Justice League.
