DC Extended Universe - Timeline

Technically, the DC Extended Universe Darkseid is the same character as the one that appeared in Smallville. Just a thought.
Yep. In the season 11 comic run for Smallville, Darkseid himself said (paraphrasing) "There's only one of me in the entire multiverse".

From the concept art I saw of Snyder's Darkseid, he kinda has a similar head design to Smallville's.

It's also worth noting that the forces of Apokolips didn't bother using their physical forms on Smallville's Earth, because presumably (or I'd assume) it was not worth sending an entire army towards. Just corrupting that Earth from within it's society.

Hence why Darkseid and his cronies possessed the bodies of humans.

Speaking of Wonder Woman, I need to break up the opening flashbacks between when Zeus created humanity and the Amazons and the War of the Gods. Obviously the Steppenwolf Apokolips invasion had to happen in between.

EDIT: Actually...can I just remove that and put the time stamps in real time except for the part where Ares fell to Earth? In a multiverse where the "one God" exists, the Zeus thing is most likely legend.

I'd assume that God (The Presence?) made the Old Gods who made humanity.

Maybe both Justice League cuts could be canon, with one of them being in the new post-crisis multiverse. That seems ideal to me. Throw in the Ayer Cut too, if we get that, which seems really likely now.

Feels like he never left. :)

Not news, but I don't really get the impression that The Batman is set in the present. Looking at the set photos, the news van is advertising HD television. You don't really see anyone doing that today.

The Batmobile design feels sleeker too, which doesn't mean anything, but it looks like they're trying to make it look more retro to contrast with modern Batman. Probably just overthinking that.

If we were to place it in the DC Extended Universe as is, it seems it would be in October 1996. I don't see this as a problem. The DC Universe is fundamentally different than ours with characters such as Lex Luthor, Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox, is it really out of question that they'd be ahead by 10 or less years? This is without getting into the supposedly timeless Gotham City. The best option is a Flashpoint soft reboot where events are slightly altered just enough to get a new cast while also keeping most films in tact, but it would still probably be set in the near past.

I'm just speculating. It could just be a stylistic choice, but it seems odd to set the film in the past even if it's just the 2000s.

Catching up with Legends of Tomorrow, that seems to be the case with the Arrowverse. The Greek gods supposedly having control over humanity for some time (and possibly even created them on that Earth) was made apparently by that show's recent episodes.

So that makes sense. The Presence (the highest power) creates some Earths, the Old/Greek gods create certain others.
And this "Old God" created one and wasn't allowed to make any more. :p


In all seriousness, I'll readd the storybook flashbacks based on what DC has established now with another universe.
