With the Marvel Cinematic Universe seemingly taking over Hollywood over the past few years, fans have been eager for Warner Bros. and DC to pull their finger out and try to catch up with them with their own cinematic universe. The man who has been given the task of bringing the DC Cinematic Universe to life is David S Goyer, who wrote the screenplay for Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.
It is expected that, following the Batman vs. Superman film, we will then see a new standalone Batman movie, as well as another Superman film and even a Wonder Woman movie, while there are plenty of other DC characters that could be brought to the big screen. However, David S Goyer has admitted that it is not going to be easy to create a cohesive DC Cinematic Universe.
Goyer recently told IGN, "I mean, it's too early. I know that Warner Bros. would love to make their universe more cohesive. There have been a lot of general conversations about that, but it's really, really early. I'm not sure. Marvel has had enormous success, but I'm not sure that everybody should try to emulate them either. It's just been vague conversations so far."
The first we will get to see of this attempt to get the DC Cinematic Universe moving will be in the Batman vs. Superman movie, which will see Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, while there have also been suggestions that we could see other DC characters making an appearance. The Batman vs. Superman film will open on May 6, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
