There has been an intentional lack of information from Zack Snyder and the team concerning the upcoming DC films, but in an Exclusive set of interviews with Empire Magazine Zack Snyder has revealed some major elements to understanding the forming DC Universe.

Zack Snyder revealed information concerning the structure of these films when stating:

What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story. The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes.

This structure that they have set up is said to not restrict the filmmakers creative visions though. Snyder emphasizes this when stating:

I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. I have given everyone amazing access to our story, to me, and what we are doing. All the films have like minded conceptual jumping on points

With that in mind it seems as though Snyder will still have a very watchful eye on how each film will take place within the universe, but also give the directors the freedom to explore.

Empire was also given the opportunity to view a board that had a timeline in place of what events will take place and when they will need to happen.

Deborah Snyder explained it as:

Kind of a timeline of what every movie is, where it is going, and where the films fit in relation to each other.

Producer Charles Roven also added his perspective  on the philosophy of giving directors a sense of creative freedom for their films when stating:

We call it the sandbox. It has borders around it, but everybody gets to play in the sandbox. On Suicide Squad, David Ayer has a lot of specific control over his area of the sandbox. Even if he crosses the line a little bit, we see if we can push our boundaries back a little bit.

These pieces of information from the three of them gives us a much clearer understanding that the Universe does indeed have a set plan and that the concept for Justice League was the first conceived story. We also now know that every other film revolves around building up to Justice League.

Justice League is set to film next year, so keep on checking here for more news, exclusives, and updates.
