I’m hearing DC Films wants to reboot Justice League as a multiverse team. So, When the Justice League returns, their new line-up might originate from the multiverse.
As DC Films begins to veer away from the Snyderverse, the plan is to release standalone movies from this point on.
However, there will be exceptions to the rule, and the Justice League reboot is among them.
While upcoming theatrical films such as Hourman and Zatanna won’t be connected to Aquaman 2, for example, other cinematic projects are going to connect TV spin-offs.
The multiverse is essentially a collection of separate pocket universes.
Directors like J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves will have their own pocket universes.
You can add Zack Snyder to that list.
It’s going to be confusing.
Make no mistake: This is the multiverse on steroids.
To make matters worse, the current path is to bring characters from these pocket universes together.
The Justice League will be as far from the Justice League of America comic-book roots as possible.
Millions of light years far.
DC Films Wants To Reboot Justice League As A Multiverse Team
Ben Affleck’s Batman is going to be replaced by Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight from a different Earth.
Superman won’t be Henry Cavill; instead, he will be J.J. Abrams’ Calvin Ellis Superman.
Blue Beetle joins from, at this point, an unknown parallel Earth alongside the new Supergirl who isn’t Melissa Benoist.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and possibly Amber Heard’s Mera will be the survivors of the Snyderverse.
Essentially, meet the Justice League of the Multiverse.
If this is at all reminiscent of Crisis on Infinite Earths, especially Greg Berlanti’s CW adaptation, that is no coincidence.
Berlanti’s crossover epic taught WB executives a crash course in the multiverse.
They don’t want everyone’s stories leading into one another; nevertheless, they can’t let go of having them all meet.
After all, Marvel Studios proved with the Avengers movies that billions were to be made when heroes assemble.
The full line-up for the new Justice League isn’t solidified yet, but the approach is becoming clearer yet oddly more blurry.
