As a fan of superhero movies, you might have wondered whether the movies produced by DC and Marvel are connected. Both DC and Marvel have their own cinematic universes, but do they exist in the same universe
DC Cinematic Universe
The DC Cinematic Universe started with “Man of Steel” in 2013, which introduced Superman to the big screen. Since then, several other characters from the DC Comics have been introduced into the universe, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg.
The DC Cinematic Universe has its own continuity and storylines that are not connected to any other superhero movies or universes.
Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) began with “Iron Man” in 2008. Since then, it has expanded to include several other superheroes such as Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Spider-Man (shared with Sony), Doctor Strange, Ant-Man and many more.
One of the key features of the MCU is its interconnectedness – all of the movies take place within the same universe and often reference events from previous films. Characters appear in multiple movies throughout the franchise.
While both movie universes exist independently from each other and have their own unique stories to tell. However there have been instances where characters from both sides have met each other in comic books.
But when it comes to movies crossovers are yet to happen officially.
Rumors about crossovers
There were rumors that a crossover between Marvel’s Avengers and DC’s Justice League might be happening soon after Disney’s acquisition of Fox. However, nothing has been confirmed by either studio.
In conclusion, while both the DC and Marvel Cinematic Universes exist independently and have their own unique stories to tell, there have been no official crossovers between the two as of yet. But we can always keep our fingers crossed for a future crossover event!
