I’ve been noticing a theme in recent DC films, and I was wondering if it was something we might come to better understand together. Because personally, I am mystified.
Exhibit A, Batman v. Superman: “Granny’s Peach Tea.”
Exhibit B, Aquaman: “Show-off. You could have just pissed on it.”
Exhibit C, Shazam!: “Did you know that Roman soldiers brushed their teeth with their own urine?”
The pattern is clear, and yet inscrutable in its nature. Why exactly are the filmmakers of the DCEU so fixated on pee jokes? Why are they featured in 3 of the last 5 DC movies? Is it secretly building to something? Is there some kind of deep DC pee lore that’s utterly lost to me? Or does everyone just really think pee is that funny? And why do I need to go to the bathroom so bad right now?
Please, discuss. I need to know why this is happening.
