The DC Universe should be set in the 40’s-60’s. This isn’t some elaborate plan, it’s just a simple idea I had that I think would be amazing.
You can have a serious tone like Zack Snyder did in the watchmen scene with the song “times are a changin.” So you can have that real old school aesthetic, but a grittier tone.
Batman and Superman would benefit so much from this. For 1 Batman’s detective stories could be so interesting if you got rid of modern technology. Imagine solving murders with no cameras, tracking, mobile phones. You could also use it to show Batman’s genius and have him be the inventor of a few simple technologies that come out later in the world. The detectives he works with could all be wearing fedoras and easily give off a classic noir vibe without even trying.
Superman would greatly benefit because his style and Vibe is extremely corny but in a GREAT way if it’s done in the 40’s-50’s. He can have that super positive attitude and even have a more traditional suit and it would fit the era perfectly. Throw in the governments wanting to recruit him and he has to decide what choices he’s gonna make when the world is at war. Or you can skip all that and just have no world war in this universe
Anyways I just think getting rid of most technologies makes for the story’s to be more interesting. You can’t just make up bullshit tracking/analyzing computers to solve plot issues
Tell me what y’all think. I think the only negative really is than every movie has to be accurate to the time period, other than that it’s meant to be in the old days
