DC Film/TV Multiverse Hinted By Kevin Smith | Film News
The Age of the Superheroes continues to rage on this year, as they produce an even greater line up of adaptations based on comic book favourites. Though it is clear that Marvel has had a handle with the cinematic universe, spawning a number of television spin offs, it seems DC is finally ready to catch up.
Though CW’s Arrow and The Flash already share the same universe on television, studios have made it clear that they are separate entities and will not participate in the upcoming Justice League movie. This move was cemented by the announcement of Ezra Miller taking on the role of Barry Allen in the upcoming Batman v Superman film, leaving many Grant Gustin fans disappointed.
However filmmaker and Silent Bob actor Kevin Smith has suggested that something might actually come into fruition, speaking in his podcast “Fatman on Batman” he recalls a conversation he had with DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns about the matter.
“We did a piece where we talked about — I don’t know how much I’m supposed to say because they cut it out, But the idea came up of, ‘Hey man, DC is known for nothing if not a multiverse,’ so at which point I was like (to Johns), ‘Could they f***ing crossover?’ And he was like, ‘Ahh.’ So doors are being left open and stuff like that. Think about this, you could have Ezra Miller be the Flash but you could also have Grant“.
It certainly isn’t a confirmation but is a mere speculation, so as much as it is exciting we urge you not to get your hopes up. But really and truly it would be an amazing thing to see, especially that the CW series itself is playing around with (spoilers) the idea of multiple universes coming together for its second season.
