If you have a group of characters, the new trend is to create a movie universe to showcase them. Marvel was one of the first to start this, taking their connected comics universe and putting it on the big screen for all of us to enjoy. DC decided to follow suit and started working on their own interconnected universe with some of the biggest names in all of pop culture. 5 films currently exist in this universe, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Justice League. We also know that Shazam, Aquaman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman 2 and Gotham City Sirens will be added to this list in the near feature. Though the series has been met with lukewarm reviews, there are some really incredible moments in these movies. It's not Marvel, but it never claimed to be. When you watch these films together, you can definitely see a narrative develop, and I hope we got to see more of it in the future.
