Earth-Prime or the DC Extended Universe is a reality in which superheroes such as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman reside in. Having many similarities to the Prime Earth and New Earth respectively.

From an outside perspective, it is a massive franchise of multiple different movie series created by Warner Bros. Studios in order to compete with Walt Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starting in mid-summer of 2013, the franchise has been generally successful and is currently thriving with the exclusive rights to all of DC Comics iconic and legendary superheroes.

History

Since the 1980s Warner Bros. had been creating films centered around their DC Comics properties, with Superman and Batman in particular finding success with audiences throughout the world. In spite of this however there was never any real attempt to crossover the DC superheroes in live-action similar to how they often did within the comics. In the mid 1990s the idea was pitched but ultimately shut down after Warner Bros. deemed the idea too risky to yield positive results or substantial profit.

Noting the wild success of the Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe, Warner Bros. re-opened talks to creating their own response in the form of a DC Extended Universe. In 2009 comic book enthusiast and knowledgable writer Geoff Johns was hired to make this idea become a reality, with him announcing at the 2010 summer Comic Con that a film based on Green Lantern was in development and would be released in 2013, acting as the starting point for a shared universe of DC heroes, with the plan being they would eventually form into The Justice League.
