SDCC: Geoff Johns Says DCEU Won’t Be Dominated By Batman Movies

July 22, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

With Batman appearing in the Justice League movies, Suicide Squad and his own possible trilogy (starting with The Batman), it might seem like the DCEU is all about the Dark Knight. In an interview with IGN, Geoff Johns assured fans that this isn’t the case. Here are highlights:

On the amount of Batman in the DCEU: “I wouldn’t say it’s going in that direction. What I will say is that we haven’t gone out there and said what our slate is, because we’ll do it when we’re ready and have the films we’re excited about.”

On expanding the Batman universe: “For Batman, what I will say is that Batman is more than just Batman. It’s been way too long since we’ve seen an expansion of that universe. We are doing Batgirl with Joss Whedon. It’s going to be super-exciting. He’s gonna start that next year. That’s just the start. We want to explore the Batman universe in a very big, new way. Matt Reeves is coming on to do Batman now. We don’t want to do the same thing that has been done before. We want to build it out just like we built it out in the comics.”

On the success of Wonder Woman helping Justice League: “Having Wonder Woman in Justice League is exciting because, again, there’s such a different audience than the typical audience that went to see that movie, and now they’ll see Justice League and get to be introduced to all these other characters like Aquaman and Flash and Cyborg, and see Batman and the whole gang together.”
