The start of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is approaching fast. Those of us who have been waiting for this movie universe since we were kids are now trying to extract as much info as we can, as well as attempting to lay out what the new universe will be like come March. The first thing any fan will have to look at is how the DCEU begins and go from there. Luckily for the brain trust of the DCEU and Zack Snyder, they were able to create an event that will allow them to springboard their universe into the spotlight, without having to do a build-up with multiple films.

The start of the DCEU began back in July of 2013. Man of Steel had just come out and fans split in half some loving the new take others hating it. However, unbeknownst to them, Zack Snyder and the rest of the DC crew were trying to figure out ways to start their next movie and a wider shared story arc. At that time, the project was simply known as Man of Steel II.

What they didn't know is that soon it would morph into a film where they would be introducing most of the Justice League and effectively breathing life into DC's new movie universe.
