The DC ship isn’t exactly sailing smoothly; the films on the horizon aren’t as explicitly unified as the Marvel roster has been. The alleged good news is that the movies being planned are more filmmaker-controlled, as opposed to producer-controlled. With the caveat that we haven’t seen any of these outside of Man of Steel and rumors Wonder Woman is head-smashingly depressing, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing that Warner is going about its superhero universe a bit differently than its competitor’s. It should be noted that WB’s strategy carries a high degree of immediate risk, as well as reward. The choices being made with the next two flicks basically put the entire fate of the DC universe in their hands. Instead of doing a handful of standalones and topping it off with a team-up spectacular, WB is treating the ensemble adventures as periodic bumps in the ongoing road. Batman v Superman is a two-hander with high profile cameos, Justice League comes shortly after, and solos will then be distributed, featuring Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern, and Shazam. It’s a less conventional way to go, but it’s closer to comic mythology with heroic tales occasionally bleeding over into cross-overs. Instead of slowly introducing the universe, WB is introducing the entire world in its first two films right out the gate. Dawn of Justice isn’t just a sequel that happens to co-star Batman; it’s a “spill the whole toy box onto the floor” approach, and Suicide Squad is another that will contain a bunch of big names, feeling almost like a backdoor pilot for a theoretical Dark Knight movie and a prequel to an eventual Injustice League.

Joker and Harley Quinn, by Richard Luong.

He notado la llegada de algunos cambios desde que llegaste a mi vida. He recordado cómo era sentirse parte de una pareja. Cuidar de alguien que cuida de mí. Es la primera vez en mi memoria reciente que tengo esos sentimientos… ¡Y odio tener esos sentimientos!
—  Joker
