I’ve seen more than a few people using the name “Worlds of DC” to refer to DC’s movie universe, but I have a couple of problems with this name.
If you’re not familiar with it, this name stems from the last Comic-con, when we saw a bunch of articles from entertainment blog sites spreading the news that that’s going to be the official name for DC’s movie universe from now on.
But I really don’t like “Worlds of DC” for a couple of major reasons. 1) The entertainment bloggers spread the name “Worlds of DC” alongside a deliberately negative narrative. The bloggers were saying that DC’s movies failed, so WB has to rebrand the movies with a new name. It was, of course, primarily the bloggers who hate DC’s movies who were the ones spreading this news. 2) The name actually stems from a fairly dumb misunderstanding. “Worlds of DC” was simply just some text on a welcome banner at Comic-con. Some entertainment blogger saw that and then just baselessly jumped to the conclusion that that’s the official name for DC’s movie universe. And then it spread from there. But it really wasn’t even meant to be the official name at all.
