Charles Roven has produced Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, and he’s on board for every movie in the new DC Extended Universe, starting with Man of Steel.
In an exclusive interview with Collider, Roven talked about the “Brain Trust” that plans out the entire DCEU. The Brain Trust includes Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Geoff Johns, and John Berg, who is the executive vice president at Warner Bros.
Roven also seemed to hint that some of the solo movies in the DCEU could be prequels and origin stories. Here’s what he had to say:
“So if, for example, The Flash movie or the Aquaman film is gonna come out after Justice League 1, it’s not gonna be a completely different character; that character will have evolved from Justice League 1. Wonder Woman, when we see her in Justice League 1, will have evolved from Batman v Superman. Unless we decide that in one of these stories we’re gonna do something that happened in the past and have it be more of an origination story, in which case you’ll realize how that character became what they were in the movie that they were first introduced.”
