The inspiration of this thought process of mine comes from an interview with Darwyn Cooke on Fanboy Radio (Episode #346) when he discuss how he came up with the continuity for DC: The New Frontier: "All retcons are irrelevant; the only continuity that matters is the 'prime continuity' established in the first year by the guys who created the strips...following the exact continuity of the original books in the original time they occurred." And that got me thinking: what-if all of the superhero movies were set as a period piece, or with a timeless setting, of the eras the characters first appeared in? So the Superman movie(s) and the Batman movie(s) would be set in the '30s, Wonder Woman and Captain America would be in the '40s, Flash and Green Lantern in the '50s, X-Men and Spider-Man the '60s, so on and so forth. I guess the exceptions would have to be if let's say; there was a 1938 set Superman movie, but he fights Brainiac in the next movie who didn't appeared until 1958, then the next movie would have to be set in 1958 (up in the air on continutiy between movies). So what do you think?
