DC Database

The DC Extended Universe (DCEU)[1] is the shared universe of several live-action DC movies, starting with Man of Steel. It also includes some comic books, video games, and TV series.


The DC Extended Universe is an unnamed universe in the Arrowverse multiverse. Various advanced races from many worlds reside here, but its Earth's technology and connection to other planets and alien races is rather primative compared to other universes. In this world, Wonder Woman was Earth's premiere superhero in 1917, but despite various vigilantes like the Batman operating in Gotham City since the 1990s, superheroes didn't really become a big part of human culture until Superman and Zod's battle in 2013. Soon after this, there was a huge influx in metahuman activity, leading to the formation of teams like the Justice League and the Suicide Squad to protect the world from threats like Lord Darkseid and Starro the Conqueror.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

  • When originally announced, the TV series Krypton was going to be set in the DCEU, but it was later decided to set it within its own universe.[9]


  • The "DC Extended Universe" name was coined by Zack Snyder, the director of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League.[1]
  • An alternate version of Justice League, entitled Zack Snyder's Justice League, premiered on HBO Max in 2021. While it heavily contradict the events of Justice League, the question as to which version will be canon moving forward still remains, as it contradicts no other DCEU material beyond small details like Superman's costume.
