While Warner's DC film universe always seems to be in a constant state of flux, we're going to do our best to explain the entire DCEU timeline. DCEU stands for the DC Extended Universe, and it kicked off back in 2013 with Man of Steel. While there are rumors that the upcoming Flash movie will essentially reset the DCEU timeline entirely - just as the "Flashpoint" event relaunched DC Comics into the "New 52" era - there is no point in talking about the future of the DCEU without combing through its past.
So, we're running through all the events - from that time Darkseid tried to take over Earth thousands of years ago, up to the point where Task Force X stopped Starro from using its mind-control madness on humans in 2021's The Suicide Squad.
