Geekville is a town in which I reside for about 50 % of my existence. Geekville is where I care passionately about comic books, and comic book movies and of course my two favorite Stars, Wars and Trek. It is where I also postulate on things like Aquamans powers outside of water and how frozen suspended animation works with a person injected with super soldier serum ala Captain America.
Geekville is a wonderful land populated by my closest friends who also like to reside there for half of their existence. When they are not banking, or policing, or governing, or broadcasting or farming or doing thousands of other things they like to float away to geekville via the comic book, movie, book, game, or even stray thought. Today is Geekville is a great day for we have confirmation of something that Geekville has been waiting years for. The existence of the DC comics Universe!!
Zack Snyder the director of the upcoming “Man of Steel” has confirmed that there are WAYNE ENTERPRISES logo’s in the Superman Movie. Wayne Enterprises is of course the Corporation run by Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne as everyone knows is Batman. In other words Superman and Batman live in the same world.
Now for the unenlightened who are wondering why this is a big deal… let me fill you in. In years past the Batman and or Superman movies as well as Green Lantern and other Movies made revolving around the DC comics universe have always been self contained. The premise for those other movies has always been that whichever hero you are watching is the only hero that ever exists. In fact most comic books movies have always operated under that premise. That was the industry standard until a few years ago when Nick Fury Showed up at Tony Starks Mansion in the movie “Iron Man” to proclaim that there are others like him in something called the Avengers Initiative.
That grand statement in the first Iron Man movie led to Marvels The Avengers. Which is the top grossing Comic book movie of all time.
Hopefully the Wayne Enterprises Acknowledgement in Man Of Steel will lead to JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Yep, its a Glorious day in Geekville!!
