There is no shortage of DC Extended Universe fan theories on the internet. Whether it’s Batman fan theories, Superman fan theories, Wonder Woman fan theories, or insane mega-conspiracies that tie every corner of the DCEU together, fans have not been shy about sharing their opinions about what’s “really” going on in the world of Gotham City and Metropolis. Though most DC fans won’t admit it, the fact that the DCEU’s storytelling has been more than a little confusing at times has only added to the appetite for fan theorizing.
DC movies (and comic book movies in general) often deliberately leave themselves open for fan speculation. It’s been a staple of the industry ever since Marvel Studios ended Iron Man with an internet-breaking tease for The Avengers. The DCEU has been intentionally ambiguous on many topics, and that’s allowed fans to determinedly pool their creative talents into filling in the gaps.
