==============================================================================

Staring off, a new interview with Johns and Berg. Things like there was surprise with the negative response with BvS and SS, accelerating hope and optimism in JL, implications there'll be a shorter leash on Snyder than Nolan.

It already seems like Snyder had a fairly short leash with how much the studio apparently interfered with BvS :sweat:.
But this case, now Johns and Berg can jerk the leash moving forward with JL -- it seems. But I can see them back pedal and say 'it was the plan all along to start dark and move to a place of hope'

Will this be renamed the DC Extended Universe thread since we have an official name now? I've never really liked the whole "Marvel's shared universe is called the Marvel Cinematic Universe so DC's shared universe must be called the DC Cinematic Universe" situation I keep seeing online. DC doesn't use that name so I don't think we should either. Thanks. :)

I think it more has to do with saving site space. However we may get DC films unrelated to the DCEU like Sandman.

BTW, I know some people are suggesting 'Dark Universe' may be that Oct 2017 date. This is rumor of course, but I never thought of that. Way too soon, methinks.
