You should have seen the Snyder Cut of this quiz. Fifty questions. You're welcome.

Justice League: The Snyder Cut
Warner Bros.

A film franchise not without controversy and divisive opinions, the DCEU has plenty of bright spots and fun moments, while rarely drawing the widespread critical appreciation of the MCU.

Starting way back in 2013 with Man of Steel, the series has struggled for a cohesive vision, and only in recent years has it produced bona fide hits such as Wonder Woman and Birds of Prey. Drawing from the furthest corners of DC comics' lore, the movie universe is now packed full of live-action versions of comic book characters most would know, but many they wouldn't.

As the series movies forward with upcoming features like James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, deliberately making use of more obscure villains, and a New Gods movie on the horizon, the DCEU continues to expand.

While unlikely to reach a crescendo of cohesion comparable to Avengers: Endgame, DC is still attempting to carve out its own identity, unlikely to rely on long term planning and foreshadowing, and perhaps instead simply utilising a deep and complex, almost chaotic universe, with wildly varying film identities and characters. As this grows, it gets harder and harder to keep track of where DC plan to take their world.

If you've managed to keep up with the J'onzz's so far, then maybe you'll have a chance with this quiz. And if not, then don't worry, once the Snyder Cut fever dies down, we'll more than likely find ourselves subject to a franchise-wide reboot. We'll see you here in five years for a quiz on the DCEU 2.0.
