The INSIDER summary:
- Marvel and DC are famous for their shared cinematic universes that extend across film and television. Marvel has been the most successful with films like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as TV shows like Jessica Jones and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
- DC is looking to catch up to Marvel this year with the release of Wonder Woman and Justice League.
- Meanwhile, multiple other studios are diving into the shared universe game, including Universal with their legacy monsters like The Mummy, Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man. Warner Brothers is hoping to turn their success with Godzilla and King Kong into a kaiju universe.
- It’s not just superheroes and monsters getting in on the action, though. The Conjuring is expanding its universe, and most bizarrely, Hanna-Barbera is planning to create a shared universe that includes Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, and The Jetsons.
