Re: Vertigo Cinematic Universe?
Not a "cinematic universe". At least not how Marvel Studios or the mainstream DC IP's are being handled anyway.
Vertigo stories are generally stand alone which is why they aren't published under the mainstream DC banner on top of having heavier thematic content. V For Vendetta was a Vertigo movie. We're going to see more Vertigo movies (100 Bullets, Fables) and TV shows as well (iZombie, Preacher) but none of that would be part of some greater connected universe or anything like that.
Just WB finally realizing that they have the comic book publisher with the biggest number of critically acclaimed and genre redefining stories under their umbrella (DC) and finally doing something with everything they have at their disposal and not just superheroes. Here's hoping they also turn Scalped or Sweet Tooth into TV shows.
I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.
