What that ‘Black Adam’ end credits scene means for the DC Extended Universe is anyone’s guess, but suffice to say that the scene that follows “A Death in the Family,” in which Superman meets his father’s murderer, seems almost like an ending to the franchise as well. With only Batman and Wonder Woman on tap to carry the new series now, the DC Universe is in a state of flux that would be a bit of a drag if we had to wait for another twelve issues of The Death of Superman to see Superman kill off a guy that was already dead and, while it’s certainly better than the alternative, it doesn’t feel like enough and, honestly, it’s not enough.

While we get to see that Green Lantern and Huntress are still on board, in the same way that Wonder Woman is, it doesn’t seem like all the characters that we fell in love with are included. The only character fans can truly love from the film is Batman and his arch-nemesis, the Joker, and while Wonder Woman’s inclusion was a nice cherry on top for what was arguably the best movie of the year, to not even include the likes of Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, and the Flash was a bit of a letdown. But that doesn’t mean that there isn
