Kevin Smith on DC\’s \’Justice League\’ Movie Strategy


Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice LogoEver since Warner Brothers announced that Batman would show up in the sequel to Man of Steel, the internet has been giving them hell for not doing the Marvel model. Where Marvel used solo movies to set up the characters prior to The Avengers, DC had appeared to be doing the exact opposite, and of course people on the internet had an opinion on that.

Now one of the biggest Batman fans on the planet chimed in on his theory of what Warner is doing, and it makes a lot of sense.

On Hollywood Babble-On Kevin Smith broke it down, and has a transcription of it:

“But look, they’re obviously beginning something, and there’s a stretch of these flick,” continued Smith. “And so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, ‘This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.’ From what I understand now, it’s no longer like, ‘This is Superman 2.’ They’re not doing these things. They’re doing like, ‘Here’s Man of Steel. Here’s Batman/Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They’re just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies.”

“But all of them…it’s supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented,” added Smith.

From the sound of it, DC is doing multiple Justice League movies to show how the team comes together. And that’s pretty awesome.
