Unlike the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the DC Extended Universe still hasn't quite found its footing. Joker was an unexpected hit, but what looked like a genuine crowd-pleaser with Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey (the new title after the original didn't work), proved to be a box office bomb. There's still no one in charge, and this shared world is seemingly becoming increasingly standalone in nature.
Ten years ago, there was no "DCEU," and the only DC Comics adaptation released in cinemas that year was the critically panned Jonah Hex starring Josh Brolin and Megan Fox. In 2011, Green Lantern crashed and burned, and that would be followed by divisive releases like The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel.
Needless to say, that just goes to show how much things can change in a decade, and we can't help but wonder what this shared world could look like another ten years from now. With a new Batman on the way, and countless projects in development (not to mention tonnes of big name heroes who have yet to make their live-action debuts), it looks set to be utterly unrecognisable as we head to 2030.
With that in mind, we're sharing ten game-changing predictions for just how the DC Extended Universe could evolve, and with signs that these could happen, perhaps Marvel will finally have some competition!
