The Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently in the midst of experiencing potentially its most important year yet, but another comic book movie franchise has been experiencing changes of its own too – the DC Extended Universe.
Now, with a markedly different set of upcoming projects, a new Batman and a new direction, WB might finally be able to mount the challenge they hoped Man of Steel would in 2013. Here are the DC comics they should look in order to make it happen.
1.Batman And The Monster-Man
There are a whole host of Bat-books that should inform Matt Reeves’ upcoming interpretation of the Dark Knight, but none more-so than Matt Wagner and Dave Stewart’s Batman and the Monster Men.
Until recently, it was rumoured that Reeves’ Batman film would take place early on in the Caped Crusader’s career, which contrasted heavily with Zack Snyder’s Dark Knight Returns-inspired interpretation of the vigilante. Such a move would’ve necessitated Ben Affleck’s exit from the role, and low and behold, last month, that very thing happened.
