DC Cinematic Universe ‘100% Connected’, Confirms Geoff Johns

DC Films boss Geoff Johns has revealed that the movies take place within a shared universe.
Responding to a fan who was questioning the company’s choice to “pull the rug out” from under its cinematic universe, Johns revealed that the DC Extended universe is still “100%” connected.
It may have come as a bit of a surprise to ‘Justice League’ fans when Johns cast doubt on the interconnectivity of DC’s movies earlier this week.
“Our intention, certainly, moving forward is using the continuity to help make sure nothing is diverging in a way that doesn’t make sense,” he said. “But there’s no insistence upon an overall story line or interconnectivity in that universe.”
Many took this to mean that the DCEU would be de-emphasizing the whole shared universe aspect of the franchise, and while Johns’ comments were certainly a bit vague, it was reasonable for people to take that away from what he said. Now, such a relief!
These are things that DC and Warner Bros. will discuss at a later time, when they are ready to make their announcements. For now, we know that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s comic book-themed films continue on Nov. 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. Later, Aquaman hits theaters in December 2018, with David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 2 coming in 2019. Then, Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps will release in 2020. We’ll just have to wait and see what DC has planned after that.
