What do you think of this news?
Glad to see Black Mask. Meh on Ewan McGregor. Never really had any feelings toward him either way.
Side-note, World of DC? That's really the replacement for DCEU? That's so... un-catchy lol.
It's not an official name (though neither was DCEU, to be fair). Worlds of DC was what the DC comics section at Comic-Con was called and because so many DC movies were revealed or talked about during that time, several new outlets assumed WoDC was the official name for the DC cinematic universe and rolled with it.
@aros001: So what you're saying is, MCU beat them in the cumulative name department, too? Lol. I'd rather stick with DCEU tbh.
I honestly couldn't say. I don't know when Marvel Studios officially took started using the name "Marvel Cinematic Universe". I'd imagine sometime around or after Avengers.
DCEU is easier to roll off than WoDC, though Personally I don't think it really makes sense. EU means Extended/Expanded Universe, like how the Star Wars EU material is an extension of the original movies' universe. But the DC movies are not an extension of the DC universe. They're a different interpretation of the DC universe, just like how the Marvel movies are a different interpretation of the Marvel universe. It'd only be an EU if the movies had any canon relevance to the comics' universe and they don't. They're an alternate universe.
Closest you could say is that since Man of Steel was not originally intended to be a start of a cinematic universe, the DCEU movies are an extension of that movie, but even then that's a stretch.
