One Choice: DCEU Origin Stories

Inspired by the popular online game that asks people to choose one movie from a group of four, One Choice… is pretty much the same game. Readers will be given four similar movies and asked to choose one. Now here’s the catch, the other three movies will be gone forever, wiped from your brain as if they never existed. Are you ready to theoretically live in a world where you have The Empire Strikes Back but not Star Wars or Return of the Jedi? What about the 1989 Batman movie but not Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight? The choice is yours, screenager, so choose wisely.

It’s Superhero Month at ScreenAge Wasteland, so why not bring back One Choice, right? I hope you don’t have more than one favorite DC Extended Universe origin story, because the first One Choice of the month is making you do just that.

Here are the 4 Movies:

Man of Steel (2013)
