The new DC movie The Flash (56%)not only has many excited by the appearance of Michael Keaton like Batman, it is also the end of an era, as it seems that it will be the end of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), a franchise that began with The Man of Steel (55%)of Zack Snyder, a decade ago.

Snyder had very ambitious plans when the DCEU began in 2013. He aspired to create an epic superhero saga with much more seriousness and darkness than the Marvel universe. However, the study had other plans, and after the failure before the critics of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (27%)Warner Bros. began to push him aside until he was fired (or forced to resign) from Justice League (41%)and the franchise has been in chaos ever since.

With numerous “turnarounds,” the DCEU strayed too far from what Snyder had planned, but it also strayed far from what Marvel Studios had done, and when October came James Gunn to the presidency of DC Studios decided that the only solution was a reboot. The Flash It will be the key to this, and it seems that it will be the final goodbye to the cinematographic universe started by Snyder in 2013.

I talked to Zack. But it wasn’t technical or narrative or anything. He just wanted to come up to me and say, ‘Hello.’ Because we didn’t know each other before, and he just wanted to tell him that we would be respectful of the things he did before. The Man of Steel is obviously pivotal to this movie because the big threat of Zod coming to Earth is a big twist in this story, and it’s something most DC fans know all too well. And that’s one of the great things that can shape the narrative of this movie.

The first appearance of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/Flash, it was on a Snyder tape, in a brief appearance on Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) before having a more significant role in League of Justice (2017). Her take on the character brought an element of humor and levity to the generally grim tone of the DCEU, which was well received by some fans and some critics.

However, the League of Justice 2017 was both a critical and commercial failure, attributed in large part to Snyder’s departure during post-production due to a family tragedy, leading to Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron (75%), Much Ado About Nothing (84%), The Avengers (92%)) to take on the project and change its tone and direction. Criticism and public reception were harsh.

After League of Justice there was a general reassessment of the DCEU, leading to a change in strategy and less reliance on the interconnectedness of the films. Although Aquaman (73%) (2018) was successful at the box office, others like Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of a Harley Quinn (75%) (2020) o The Suicide Squad (91%) (2021) were not as successful.

The Flash’s solo movie, after numerous delays, is finally hitting theaters very soon, with Miller reprising his role, and with the return of actors like Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck y Michael ShannonIn addition to the arrival of sasha street like Supergirl.
