The DC Cinematic Universe
DC, like Marvel, also has its own cinematic universe. Although it was not until relatively recently that it began to take shape. Because all these years ago each character had their own adventures and they weren’t really connected to the rest.
With the premiere of Man of Steel (The Man of Steel) in 2013 the touch began to change and those responsible for carrying out the film adaptations began to see that mixing characters and creating a extended universe or DCEU as it is also done in the comics it would be the same or even more interesting.
So taking advantage of the upcoming release of the Snyder Cut, the long-awaited Zack Snyder version of this Justice League adaptation that he couldn’t get to 100% completion the first time, we thought it would be interesting to talk about those movies that didn’t You should get lost if you want to arrive well prepared and understand what is going on.
If you have not seen any, you are still on time, because there are practically two weeks until the day of the premiere. And if you did wear them at the time, it’s never a bad idea to do it again to refresh your memory.
The chronological order of DC movies
If we leave aside the films about DC characters that have been made in an “independent” way from what the DC Universe is, the films that do shape it are the following and are sorted by release date:
- Man of Steel (2013)
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
- Suicide Squad (2016)
- Wonder Woman (2017)
- Justice League (2017)
- Aquaman (2018)
- Shazam! (2019)
- Birds of Prey (2020)
- Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)
This is the order as they were released on the big screen, but as you already know, this does not always follow the logical order of the action and events that are narrated in each one of them. That’s why there is another order, the one that the fans really consider to be how all movies should look to better understand what’s going on in every moment. If you are interested, it would be the following:
- Wonder woman
- Wonder Woman 1984
- Man of steel
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
- Suicide Squad
- Birds of prey
- The Justice League
Here you have to make a little parenthesis since if you want to spin fine you would have to see the scenes of Wonder Woman where there are certain “flashbacks” in the first place because it tells the events between 1914 and 1918, and then the scenes that occur in the modern age right after Batman v Superman. Yes, it is a bit of a mess, but it would be the most correct of all. Although nothing happens not to do it like that.
What movies to watch before the Synerder Cut
Come on, now that you know all the movies and their orders, both chronological and viewing, it’s clear which ones you should see or rewatch before Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
It was certainly Warner’s first big box office hitThere is acceptance by fans of the superhero genre. The film directed by Patty Jenkins, who would repeat in its second installment, knew how to combine all the elements well and make Gal Gadot shine as Diana, the Amazon princess.
Wonder Woman 1984
It cost it to premiere in 2020 due to the pandemic, but in the end The wait was worth it and again Gal Gadot was up to the task, as did the new characters he introduced as Kristen Wiig as Cheetah.
Man of steel
The Man of Steel was really the first film that started the entire beginning of the DC Extended Cinematic Universe which we now refer to and was Zack Snyder’s first movie with these superheroes. It was not the best movie, but it does help to better understand the character of Superman.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
In confrontation of two heroes a priori very unequal failed to penetrate positively among most of the public. Still, it is essential to see it to understand the relationship between the two.
Going from villains to “forced heroes” was not a great idea, but that was what Suicide Squad was proposing. The film did not turn out to be a success and it must be admitted that it promised much more than it ended up offering. But see Joker, Harley Quinn and the rest of the characters together It is not something we can do every day.
Birds of prey
In Birds of Prey the Harley Quinn they show us is much more than the one we could see in Suicide Squad and not only because of his emancipation and independence from Joker, but also because of the attitude of the character played by Margot Robbie. It is a film that puts the character in his place and gives him the prominence he deserves and not just a witty and flashy companion role.
The Justice League
The version that Josh Weedon was commissioned to complete And that you should also see to appreciate the difference in focus compared to the next Zack Snyder premiere. Also, it does not last the four hours that the new version will last.
When does the Synder cut debut?
As you know, Zack Snyder’s Justice League will premiere on March 18 in the United States and at the same time it will also do so in UK. So through HBO UK you will be able to enjoy the new version that we will see later if it convinces or not.
Lastly, you may have noticed that other movies like Aquaman or Shazam! They are not on the list of movies to see before the Snyder Cut. Well, they are not essential, but they also help to know, at least, a little more about Aquaman.
So if you have time between now and the premiere, seeing both is a good idea. And Shazam! It is worth it for the very different approach it has compared to other productions. But do not make the mistake of thinking that it is a movie for the little ones, because it is not like that.
Finally, who knows if it is he who is expected that special cameo at the end of his own to Snyder Cut.
