Geoff Johns says the DC universe films are 100% connected

Last week, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson and chief creative officer Geoff Johns were interviewed by Vulture about the DC universe films and while they tried to clarify the plan moving forward for the films, there still was some confusion. The paragraph from the article in question goes as follows:

One of the centerpieces of this new, decentralized strategy is an as-yet-unnamed side label of occasional movies that are completely separate from everything else, set entirely outside the cinematic universe. Total stand-alones based on good ideas from big-name filmmakers. Movies that are just movies, not components of a larger piece of clockwork. The first one they’re talking about is a solo outing about supervillain the Joker, set to be directed and co-written by The Hangover and War Dogs alumnus Todd Phillips. Johns says they’ll be announcing the name of of this side label “soon-ish.”

Sites, such as ours, took this to mean that there will be the main DC universe films, such as the upcoming Justice LeagueAquamanWonder Woman 2, and so on, and there will also be a completely separate line of movies that will have nothing to do with those, such as the above-mentioned, Todd Phillips-directed Joker origin movie, to be produced to be produced by Martin Scorsese and Phillips.

While we still think that is the case, a fan asked Johns the following on Twitter: “Cinematic universe has only begun and you are already pulling the rug out from under it? Please keep the universe connected!”

Here’s Johns’ response:

Is he just talking about the main DC universe films or also this separate side label? We still don’t really know until they reveal their full plan post-Justice League. What are you hoping for? Do you want all the films to connect in some way, even if it’s just a little? Or do you think there should be the main DC universe films and then the side label that has nothing to do with the main films at all? Let us know your thoughts.

See How All The Pixar Movies Are Connected Through A Russian Nesting Doll Of Easter Eggs

Pixar Movies Connceted

If you’re a true Pixar Animation fan, then you’ve probably heard all about the meticulously crafted theory that explains how all the movies could exist within the same universe. It’s called The Pixar Theory, and it uses several key details, including some of Pixar’s famous easter eggs, to tie all of the movies together.

Though Pixar Animation has acknowledged the existence of the theory, they haven’t officially confirmed or denied its validity. However, a new video released officially by Disney comes close to affirming the wild theory that connects all the movies. Weaving through every Pixar Animation feature film, from this year’s Finding Dory all the way back to Toy Story, the video acts as a sort of Russian nesting doll of Pixar’s easter eggs that connect each movie to the one that came before it.

Just to be clear, this video isn’t confirming The Pixar Theory, but it’s rather interesting how they’ve connected all the movies through these easter eggs tied to the characters of the movie that came before them. Despite our extensive posts about Pixar easter eggs over the years, I either didn’t know about a few of these easter eggs, or I just forgot about them. So maybe some of these will be a surprise to you as well.

This year Pixar has two movies coming out, Cars 3 on June 16 and Coco on November 22, so there’s likely some kind of Cars 3 easter egg in Finding Dory, as well as a Coco easter egg in Cars 3. So keep your eyes peeled when you see Pixar’s latest movies this year.
