#11 – Worlds Of DC vs. DCEU
Hope Strikes Back Podcast
San Diego Comic-Con is always a place for fans to look forward to announcements from their favorite comic book publishers, television studios, and movie studios. This year though was a bit different. At least when it came to announcements regarding the DC movie universe. Gone were the roadmaps pointing to a decade in the future showcasing all of the movies that DC was going to release showcasing their various superheroes. Instead, fans were given highlights of what DC is already working on. It’s a simple variation from years past, but it’s significant.
While “Worlds of DC” was not officially announced as the replacement to the DCEU, a giant banner was shown during the Warner Brothers presentation saying “Welcome to the Worlds of DC” so it’s only natural that everyone on the Internet took that to mean that the DCEU is dead. Of course, our panelists felt the need to jump in and look at what DC is doing with their movie properties and how things might be different going forward. They also promote one of our new shows, and we get a follow-up on Collin’s recent trauma.
