I’m talking about the DC Cinematic universe, here. The comics universe is WAY cohesive, even after their questionable decision (questionable to my mind) to reinstate the Multiverse, basically undoing everything the now-classic CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS fixed back in the 80s. (Hopefully they’ll be able to maintain it.) But I’ve said all along that DC’s lack of one cohesive live action universe was hamstringing them. When you’ve got a TV universe and then a big-screen universe, they must inevitably compete with each other. THE FLASH TV show is really popular with fans. Won’t that make it just that much harder for the upcoming FLASH movie to succeed? Not only will the movie have to live up to expectations of fans who revere the character from the comics, they must also live up to those of fans of the television series.
If it was just the Flash, that wouldn’t be so bad. Only one movie’s success would be on the line. But there’s now Henry Cavill’s Superman, and then there’s the Superman who’s going to be featured on the new season of the SUPERGIRL TV series. And the contained reality of the TV universe is now creeping into the cinematic universe, as word is that the upcoming BOOSTER GOLD flick will NOT be a part of the cinematic universe. This is gonna get confusing, even for the fanboys (and girls) who know what’s going on. DC trying to sell a multiverse in the comics is tough enough. How can they possible sell it in their movies and TV shows?
