We’ve known for a while now that Warner Bros. intends to give a lot of creative freedom to the filmmakers that will be working on the upcoming DC adaptations that the studio has slated all the way up to 2020, but under the condition that those films feel like they’re part of one big, interconnected universe. Speaking with Collider, Charles Roven, producer of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and the upcoming DC films, talked about the talent that will get to play in the DC Extended Universe sandbox, as well as the the creative team behind it, which consists of himself, Geoff Johns, John Berg, and of course, Zack and Deborah Snyder.
Roven also teased that few of the upcoming films could actually be prequels and origin stories for the characters that we’ll meet next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League in 2017.
There have been plenty of rumors about how Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad could actually be set before the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Roven’s comments certainly don’t confirm those rumors, but it’s good to know that we might actually get to see how the heroes we’re all eagerly waiting to meet, came to be who they are before we first see them in action next year. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comment section below.
