Imagine that DC had started building a cinematic universe in 2008, culminating with a mega-successful Justice League in 2012. In this alternate universe, where Marvel and DC changed places, what movies would DC be planning for 2014 and 2015?
Reading the interview with Kevin Feige earlier today, along with Wired's Adam Rogers' speculations about DC's failure to imitate Marvel's cinematic universe, we couldn't help imagining a world where everything was... opposite.
Like, say if 2008's Batman movie had ended with Amanda Waller (or Max Lord) talking to Bruce Wayne about the Justice League. And later that summer, a Superman film had come out, featuring a cameo where Bruce Wayne tells someone from the military he might be able to help with their Kryptonian problem.
And then two years later, another Batman movie includes more Justice League hints, plus an agent is sent to New Mexico to investigate an Amazon girdle that just appeared in the desert. Followed by Wonder Woman and Green Lantern films, and then Justice League, and a third Batman.
Do you think this alternate universe is even remotely plausible? And in that case, what films would DC be working on now? What would DC's equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man be? Who would be the equivalent of Dr. Strange and Black Panther that everybody would be speculating about?
Bonus question: What would be the DC equivalent of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show?
