(Warning: Spoilers for Justice League below)
With the Justice League movie in production, and having seen the movies that make up the DCEU so far, I believe Warner Bros. is about to drop a cosmic-sized bombshell on us. I’ll admit that the DCEU has felt a bit rushed in terms of world-building, and to a degree, some of the characters have felt a bit unfamiliar, but maybe, just maybe, this has all been done intentionally.
While comparing the DCEU with the DCU (DC Comics Universe) it dawned on me (sorry, I couldn’t resist): What if a major event already occurred in the DCEU that we haven’t seen, and it altered certain aspects of movie-version Earth-1? What if this event wiped out a pre-existing movie-version of the Multiverse?
As I started thinking about major events that took place in the DCU that severely impacted Earth-1 and the Multiverse, only one came to mind — Crisis on Infinite Earths. That’s right, I’m suggesting that the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline has already occurred within the DCEU.
Earth-1? Multiverse? If you enjoyed the movies but aren’t up to speed on your comic book history, don’t worry, I got you covered. If you think my theory is bat guano just wait until you get to the part where I reveal who Jesse Eisenberg actually played in Batman v Superman.
