When Warner Bros. began to get the ball rolling on their DC Universe, Marvel was already within the midst of the second part of their Marvel Cinematic Universe, so Warner Bros. clearly had quite a lot of catching as much as do in a brief period of time, so it did not take lengthy for the studio to announce a full slate of DC movies.

Whereas talking with Vainness Truthful, Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice and JUSTICE LEAGUE screenwriter Chris Terrio stated that he was at the hours of darkness quite a lot of the time because it appeared like Warner Bros. thought of hitting a launch date to be extra essential.
I used to be not consulted on the order of the movies, though I used to be the individual writing Justice League. They only decided that it was going to be Batman/Superman, after which Surprise Girl, then Justice League, after which Aquaman. So there was by no means any thought to how the world was constructed earlier than they issued this edict. They stated, “Conform to this schedule.”

This lack of planning positively difficult issues for Chris Terrio, as a lot of the inspiration for the DC Universe wasn’t in place when he was writing the script. “The Surprise Girl script wasn’t even completed once I wrote Justice League,” Terrio defined. “So I had no foundation to put in writing Surprise Girl aside from Batman/Superman. Themyscira didn’t even exist. I used to be by no means proven something on the web page for it. I didn’t know whether or not individuals may speak underwater. That was a factor that I needed to ask, as a result of I didn’t know if I may do underwater scenes with Aquaman and Atlanteans. It was all simply from scratch as a result of there had been no [solo] character movies.” Terrio added that due to the dearth of set-up, Justice League wanted to ascertain a number of major characters, resurrect Superman, and create an extended recreation mythology for the franchise. “I simply don’t understand how you possibly can do all that in beneath two hours,” Terrio stated. “Perhaps the 2017 launch proved that you simply couldn’t.” Since Justice League clearly did not carry out fairly as anticipated, Warner Bros. have slowly began re-configuring their DC Universe and look to be embracing the multiverse extra this time round, with a number of of their upcoming motion pictures going down in numerous universes.
