By now, you don't need us to tell you the DC Extended Universe is likely to be remembered as a failure on the same level as Universal's ill-fated Dark Universe.
Warner Bros. made a number of poor decisions that ultimately doomed the DCEU (you can read more about those by clicking here), though there were still lots of things we couldn't help but love about many of the movies. That includes the casting decisions, many of which were made by Zack Snyder.
With a reboot looming courtesy of DC Studios, the newly named DCU looks set to reimagine this shared world but is still going to bring back some familiar faces, with John Cena's Peacemaker, Viola Davis' Amanda Waller, and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn among the confirmed returnees.
When it comes to The Trinity, however, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman will all look vastly different a few years from now.
David Corenswet is the DCU's new Man of Steel and will first play the character in James Gunn's Superman: Legacy. The filmmaker wanted to focus on a younger Kal-El, so it's easy enough to see why Henry Cavill's time as this iconic superhero reached what felt like a premature end.
As for Batman, he too will be recast in Andy Muschietti's The Brave and the Bold, a movie that promises to explore Bruce Wayne's dynamic with his son, Damian Wayne/Robin. Ben Affleck has outright said he doesn't want to work with Gunn and DC Studios so we're not overly surprised he won't be back.
Wonder Woman's future is perhaps the most confusing of the three, with Gal Gadot insisting she'd been promised Wonder Woman 3 by Gunn and Peter Safran. That was later debunked by a piece in the trades (clearly fed to them by Warner Bros. and DC Studios brass), essentially making the actress out to be a liar.
It's a strange time to be a DC fan, but there are many fans who believe the DCEU's Trinity should have stuck around and been front and centre in the DCU.
It's a compelling argument, particularly given the great work Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot delivered as these characters. There would have been a lot of benefits to building a new franchise around the trio, and also some pitfalls, including the negative connotations now associated with the DCEU.
As you've probably guessed, we want you, ComicBookMovie.com's readers, to cast your vote and let us know whether you think DC Studios should have created the DCU around the original big screen Trinity. It's too late to change anything now, of course, though we can't help but be curious to see how most of you feel when it comes to Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman's respective futures...
