Ok, so first off, if you haven’t watched Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, be warned, there will be spoilers and I don’t want to blur chunks of this post.
So I just sat down and watched Superman: Man Of Tomorrow and Justice Society: WWII back to back, and I noticed the animation looked the same, and Darren Criss voiced Superman in MOT and had a cameo as Superman in WWII. That alone isn’t THAT big of a deal, although, you could just as easily gotten another actor for a cameo role if they weren’t setting something up. I’m wondering if they are low key setting up another continuity in animation. Here’s why.
The way WWII ended with the interaction between Superman and Flash got me thinking of another shared animated universe. And the fact Darren Criss was in both movies and the animation looked the same.
So what if at the end of Apokolips War, when Barry went off to create another Flashpoint, he actually did it, and Man Of Tomorrow, and JSWWII were the kick off movies? They were both origin movies so to speak, one being the golden age heroes from the past at that.
Is it possible this is the beginning of a new shared universe and the characters have been reset due to the new Flashpoint Barry created, and they would of course be unaware. I could be all wrong, but then again, they could be setting it up without the audience knowing for sure like last time when it all kicked off with Justice League: War.
If this is the case, I actually think it’s a smart way to go considering a Flashpoint would leave them unaware of the pervious universe, and they could be waiting to officially make it public to the audience down the road.
