One of the things that separates DC\u2019s shared universe from Marvel\u2019s is that the former won\u2019t feature any crossovers between its movies and its TV shows. For instance, while Marvel\u2019s Daredevil series is set in the same New York that features in The Avengers, DC will soon have two different actors playing the Flash; Grant Gustin on TV and Ezra Miller on film.\r\n\r\nThis has upset some fans who want to see more of a connection between DC\u2019s properties. However, the man currently responsible for the movie side of things, Zack Snyder, has recently spoken out on behalf of the decision.\r\n\r\nSpeaking on the Hall of Justice podcast, Snyder said: \u201cThe bottom line for me is: I have 100% respect and love what they\u2019re doing on TV. I think it\u2019s amazing, and it speaks to the iconographic nature of these characters \u2013 these characters are bigger than any of the actors that are playing them."\r\n\r\n"You know, long after I\u2019m done making a Batman\/Superman movie there\u2019ll be someone else who makes it. You know, who makes another one. It\u2019s almost like an American tradition now, we\u2019ve established that these characters will be played and played again, and they exist outside of us in this moment.\u201d\r\n\r\nHe further explained: "that\u2019s the thing that I\u2019ve embraced, and as opposed to just trying to shoehorn all these story lines into a single universe, we let the characters exist in multi-universe, and therefore it\u2019s a lot more fun and it\u2019s a lot more value for the audience. They get to see their favourite and most beloved characters on different adventures at the same time, in different universes.\u201d\r\n\r\n"And it really makes the meal a lot richer and a lot more fun. And I think that\u2019s really the joy of what we\u2019re trying to do over here at DC."\r\n\r\nYou can listen to the full podcast here.\r\nImage via Warner Bros.
