There’s speculation that the WB and DC would lay the groundwork down for Justice League — or at least a shared universe for their superheroes. It appears it just might be happening.
Director Zack Snyder said that in Man of Steel, a Wayne Enterprises satellite is destroyed by General Zod, the commanding antagonist of the film.
“The Wayne Enterprises logo is on a satellite that Zod destroys… I don’t know [about teaming up Superman/Batman in a sequel]. Everything is interesting at this point. And don’t forget that Lex is out there, doing who knows what.”
It’s easy to take it as the beginnings of a crossover, or it could simply be an easter egg for fans. Either way, it gives a sense of a shared universe.
Of course, we also know Christopher Nolan’s version of Batman was in a self-contained universe, so we won’t be seeing that Batman or Robin for the matter. Any appearances of Batman here on out would be a new incarnation.
Man of Steel hits theaters June 14. I cannot wait.
