10 Defining Quotes From The DC Extended Universe

Previous1 of 11

DC Extended UniverseEarlier this week, we here at Heroic Hollywood gave the 20 defining quotes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not to be outdone, we also wanted to take a look at the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and some of the best dialogue/monologues within their films that have so far helped shape their cinematic universe.

Now keep in mind, the DCEU is still in its sophomoric phase. There are only three films in the can — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad — so we’re going to try our best and refrain from the usual “Marvel vs DC” trope. The films in the DC Extended Universe have their share of highlights and great moments that do a great job at bringing some of our all-time favorite comic book characters to the big screen (and even introducing us to new ones). This list will be strictly for the DCEU, and not feature unconnected films or DC TV shows (Sorry animated movies, Nolan-verse, Arrow-verse and Gotham, maybe we’ll take a look at those as well).

Here are a few of the top DC Extended Universe quotes. Click Next to see…

    My all time favorite superhero movie quote.

    Jor-El: “You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”

    Lex had the best lines in BvS.

    “Look at us. This is how it all caves in. Civilization on the wane, manners out the window.”

    THAT was Lex Luthor there in that isolated prison cell with Batman. The rest was a public facade of lunacy in case he were to be caught so as to plea insanity. He was so successful, they didn’t even see him fit for trial. Tough sh*t that Batman sent him to Arkham XD

    Also, “Mother of God, would you look at the time.” Cold as ice LOL.

      My thoughts exactly.


    Can’t believe the “1%” quote, or the “Water: Wet” quote is not there. Also, “Martha” is not a quote, it’s a moment.

    I’d also add “He’s so intense” from SS. Kinda brings me in the mind of “Why so Serious?” SS is full of great quotes.
