Alachia Queen recently uploaded avoid with a cute, quick, and creative way of rebooting the DCEU. I recommend going and watching her video and showing her channel some love (skip to around 8 min in for the idea). To summarize for the sake of this post she has Freddie and Billy from Shazam! talking about the DCEU heroes as if they were Billy’s stories about the comic characters. Freddie brushes him off with quips about Batman not killing and Superman’s best attribute being his humanity – maybe a comment that his Wonder Woman story was pretty good.
Building off this idea I thought of Superboy Prime. What if Superboy Prime existed in another world and he causes a reboot of the multiverse (all live action incarnations of these characters because I don’t think comics can handle another reboot)? I would like to see the incorporation of the Monitors, Anti-monitor and even the Presence (maybe as a Scottish terrier). I’m currently working on the short scenes that would act as credit scenes.
Yet, that might not even be the path to take. Is a reboot necessary? Why or why not? How can we bring the characters we love to life properly on the big screen?
I don’t know if anyone out there is even listening but, these characters are heroes in our world. They help people get through tough times and learn to grow. These characters – these amazing multidimensional characters – deserve to portrayed to the masses how the comic fans see them. Media shapes how the public views these characters and it’s time for people to know the characters we love, how we know them.
