The DC Cinematic MultiUniverse (DCCMU) is an American film series and shared fictional universe that is centered on a series of superhero films, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, based on characters that appear in publications by DC Comics. The shared universe, much like the original DC Universe in comic books, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters.
In early 2008, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Warner Bros. Pictures was trying to build its own shared cinematic universe featuring DC Comics superhero team the Justice League. Later during the year, Variety reported that the studio started a writing program to build an in-house stable of screenwriters for these movies. In March 2009, acclaimed comic book artist Adam Hughes was commissioned by Warner Bros. to create designs for some of the members of the Justice League. In December of the same year, it was announced that comic book and television writer Geoff Johns had completed the first draft for a Justice League movie.
