(Company rebranding = new thread!)

Today, Warner Bros. announced that their current initiative around DC movies has a new name - Worlds of DC.


The DC Extended Universe, also known as DCEU, has been in use for years, but was a term coined by a journalist and was never what DC actually called their film universe. This new term allows them to make movies under one brand, but have them take place in different universes so they don't have to all be necessarily connected.
DC launched Worlds of DC with the reveal of two trailers for Shazam! and Aquaman.

DC also had the director of Wonder Woman 1984 Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and Chris Pine on hand to discuss the film that is currently in production and showed off an exclusive early look at the film. Birds of Prey, starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn starts filming in January with several other films in development including Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role, The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Batgirl, Suicide Squad 2, Cyborg, Black Adam starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the titular role, a Joker film for Jared Leto, a New Gods film directed by Ava DuVernay, and a Blackhawk film directed by Steven Spielberg.
