Timeline of the DC Extended Universe

With the imminent release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice the DC Extended Universe is expanding and taking shape. ComiConverse Contributor, Ryan Mayer, has a rundown of the announced films and how they fit into the growing DC Extended Universe timeline.

We are getting closer and closer to the release of one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice come out this March on the 25th. When the movie comes out, it will kick start the new DC comics cinematic universe. This is the movie will begin to bring together the Justice League, introducing members like Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg, setting the stage for things to come.

Currently, we as fans are unaware how these other Justice League members will factor into the movie. Regardless, fans can get excited to see these heroes getting the big screen treatment together. This one movie will open the door to a new cinematic universe.


The biggest question many fans will have about the films released after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is where in the universe’s timeline they fall.

Here is what we know so far when it comes to the DC Extended Universe. The first movie that takes place in this timeline is Man of Steel. This movie shows the arrival of Kal El on Earth and his growth into Superman. This movie told the story of how a young inexperienced man was thrust into becoming a hero when the world needed him. However, due to his lack of experience, he was unable to save as many people as he would have wanted and keep the battle hardened General Zod from destroying most of Metropolis.

The next movie in this universe’s timeline is the one currently causing excitement, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie will take place two years after the initial fight between Zod and Superman, which was aptly named the “Black Zero Event.” This movie will dive into the discussion of the amount of damage and death that came from the “Black Zero Event.” Batman will be taking charge in this argument, he feels that Superman is too powerful and if he turns on the Earth he can kill all of mankind. The major result of this much awaited movie is that it will open the door for the rest of the DC universe

After Batman v. Superman opens the door to the wider DC Univers, the next movie up is Suicide Squad, which has garnered even more hype than Batman v. Superman. This movie will focus on a group of villains who are forced to do good in exchange for shorter prison sentences. The movie will introduce major Batman villains like Deadshot, the Joker, Harley Quinn, and Killer Croc. It will also introduce the Flash villain, Captain Boomerang. The biggest question is when this film takes place in the timeline of the movies. In a recent article by Entertainment Weekly it was revealed that Suicide Squad takes place after the events of Batman v. Superman.

The next movie to be released is Wonder Woman on June 23, 2017. Currently most of the details about the Wonder Woman movie are unknown. All fans know as of now is that the movie will be taking place in two time periods. Current day, which will be post-Batman v. Superman, and during World War I. Warner Bros. announced through Entertainment Weekly that on their official timeline Wonder Woman will be considered post Batman v. Superman due to it having scenes that occur after the events of Batman v. Superman.

The new DC Extended Universe is beginning to take shape. In the next few weeks we will hopefully start to see more teasers of what is to come over the next couple of years.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
