Do you know if those DC character films be based in the same Universe like the Marvels or have their own individual box worlds separate from one another?
Aside from The Batman, the movies listed above are to be set within the same universe. The Batman is a stand alone venture, similar to Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and doesn’t tie in to the other films.

From my understanding though, DC will focus on contained movies set around the characters in question. With perhaps a few references to others/or maybe a cameo.

Not sure if you’ve seen Shazam, but (without giving away spoilers) it referenced Batman and Superman conversationally so as to establish that the Shazam setting also takes place in the same world.

So it’s different to the Marvel setting of many characters coming in and out of the movies. DC tried it, rushed it to play catch up, and the end products were nowhere near what they should have been. I don’t believe there’s going to be a big ‘team up’ style DC movie on the cards until The Flash movie in 2022/23.

I'm more of a fan of the Marvel Universe than DC anyway, even though Batman is probably my favourite individual character. I'm not a big fan of DC's depth of characters whereas there's a number of Marvel characters or teams I like, I watch most of the DC stuff too though because I like the genre.

That’s fair enough, there’s something available within the genre for everyone. I’m DC through and through. But what Marvel have achieved in their movie universe under Kevin Feige’s vision is one of the greatest examples of an execution of a business plan. Phenomenal.
