“I’ve been saying for a while that a new era in the DC Universe is about to begin. What I really meant by ‘This is a new era in the DC Universe’ is listening to the fans. And we’re doing our best to I’ve been waiting for someone to come up and speak to the fans and say, ‘Hey, we hear you,'” Johnson added. “So finally, after many months turned into many years, we got to what we came up with. And the whole purpose and purpose now is to this new age, new age. Now let’s build on.” [H/T CinemaBlend]
