Last September it was revealed that the commonly used “DCEU” abbreviation for the DC movies wasn’t even official. It was actually just invented by a writer in an Entertainment Weekly piece.
Today on Twitter DC’s Geoff Johns congratulated his new partner in leading the DC films to the big screen, and used “DCU” to describe the cinematic universe:
Welcome aboard, Walter!! Thrilled to be working with you! It’s been a blast on Shazam! — now it’s off to the rest of the DCU! (And get a twitter account!) https://t.co/qAGAWzWxWP

Him using “DCU” instead of “DCEU” may signify that DC has settled in on an official abbreviation for their movie universe.
