DC Extended Universe

DC is a FIlm franchise which stands for DC Extended Universe using the logic of the Earth inside the Multiverse system. DC Extended Universe consist of movies which are interconnected to each other and use the characters which are mentioned in the DC comics. Producer of the comic books are Warner Brothers and DC studios. The tie up of Warner Bros and DC studios leads to the production of many short films, comics and video games.

DCUE begin their journey as a competitor of Marvel Cinematic Universe in the year 2013 by the launch of the movie Man Of Steel continued by Superman, Suicide Squad , Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman , Shazam! , Birds of Prey , Wonder Woman 1984 , The Suicide Squad 2, and Black Adam and will continued by Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in the year 2023.

According to some reports, the release of Flash will be the beginning of a new era for the continuation of DC films and after the release of Creature Commandos that is superman legacy. The new era will be officially released.

When it was first announced that Man Of Steel will be the beginning to the new era of DC Entertainments as DCUE at that time fans used to call it as DC Cinematic Universe (DCCU) after the foundation of  Marvel Cinematic Universe on 1st July, 2015. After the release of Justice league many fans thought that this would be in the extended universe of DC as SnyderVerse and asked for more stories but they are still struggling to bring a conclusion to it.      

James Gunn in 2021 confirmed that the name DCUE is still used as a label internally. Since then all the official articles of DC comics started to use DCUE as a label for interconnecting universes.

DC Extended Universe Movies Watch Order And Timeline

DC movies are easy to maintain their timeline or chronological order unlike the huge Marvel Cinematic Universe’s timeline. Still some movies like Aquaman, Shazami and Birds of Prey are hard to keep in the correct frame of the timeline. Even the timeline could have been destroyed by the entry of the new wonder woman film but thanks to Easter eggs for some posters which clears the timeline.

  • “Wonder Woman” (1914-18)
  • “Wonder Woman 1984” (2020)
  • “Man of Steel” (2013)
  • “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (2016)
  • Wonder Woman (2017)
  • Suicide Squad (2016)
  • Justice League (2017)
  • Aquaman (2018)
  • Shazam! (2019)
  • Birds of Prey (2020)
  • The Suicide Squad (2021)
  • Black Adam (2022)

If some wants it more specifically then you are free to watch more movies in chronological order but then it well get more tough to maintain the timeline of the DC extended Universe like the movie Justice League completely skip the movie Aquaman, suicide squad contain some of the pre scenes of the movie Man Of Steel. But the above list will help you to maintain a comfortable streamline and also in chronological order except the movie Wonder Woman : modern days will be crucial for users to maintain the timeline.
