With Wonder Woman making her solo film debut this weekend, Warner Brothers took the opportunity to show off a new intro set to play prior to their DC Extended Universe movies.
In the final shot of the intro, a beautiful image of a whole plethora of DC characters is displayed, hinting at a bright future for the closest competitor to Marvel Studios’ Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Front and center is DC’s Trinity — Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman — that is flanked by Aquaman and The Flash, the next two DC characters to get their shot at a solo film. Aquaman — helmed by director James Wan (Saw) — is currently filming on location in Hawaii while the crew at Warner Bros is scrambling to find a director for The Flash.
While moviegoers expected to see those characters, in addition to Cyborg, as the group appears in this fall’s Justice League, a few surprises were in tow.
In addition to the mainstay characters, you can also see Catwoman, Shazam, Black Adam, Nightwing, and a few members of the Green Lantern Corps.
If Warner Brothers were to take a page from the book of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, they might have themselves a pretty nice cinematic universe on their hands should movies of the characters in the intro be made.
