DCU page move[]

Alright, I can't take this anymore, it's too confusing. We should really consider moving the "DCU" page to "DC Cinematic Universe", as it's much less confusing for both fans and newcomers to the wiki. Plus, it's never technically been officially stated what "DCU" stands for, so this can still work. -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 20:12, 28 July 2023 (UTC)

If no one at DC has said what "DCU" stands for, we can't just make something up. We just have to treat it like "DCU" is the name and doesn't mean anything in particular. - SuperFan24K (talk) 22:29, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
Just using DCU as a distinguisher should be fine, until its own designation is given as part of its own multiverse, or a completely different name for the shared universe is given altogether. I do think we should avoid using "DC Universe", like "Kal-El (DC Universe)", since it's too vague in terms of which DC universe it's referring to (This reality or Prime Earth?), making some people perhaps assume this is the main version of the character. Meanwhile, I've only really heard DCU refer to this shared universe, and never the main comics one(s), so it should be fine. - KalKent (Anton) (Earth-1218) (talk) 21:09, 16 March 2024 (UTC)

Gunn confirms nothing is DCU canon until Creature Commandos[]

https://x.com/FlashFilmNews/status/1707099890575085801 So, apparently we jumped the gun a bit by adding Pre-Creature commandos stuff under DCU.

His own worlds: "Nothing is canon until Creature Commandos next year - a sort of aperitif to the DCU - & then a deeper dive into the universe with Superman: Legacy after that. It's a very human drive to want to understand everything all the time, but I think its okay to be confused on what's happening in the DCU since no one has seen anything from the DCU yet. And, yes, some actors will be playing characters they've played in other stories & some plot points might be consistent with plot points from the dozens of films, shows & animated projects that have come from DC in the past. But nothing is canon until CC and Legacy."

Blue Beetle and, when it releases, Aquaman 2 stuff, should be moved to the DCEU then, I'd imagine? JDMA12 (talk) 23:13, 27 September 2023 (UTC)

Seconded. Gunn's statements make it clear. Creature Commandos is the start of the DCU. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 18:04, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Can someone do the merging I'll do the bot work and moving after. --Tupka217 (talk) 18:07, 1 October 2023 (UTC)

Naming standards[]

Hey, I think that if we are calling this reality "DCU" that the characters should be (DCU), not (DC Universe). DrJohnnyDiablo (talk). 01:10, 8 May 2024 (UTC)
