It rumbles in the DC Universe. While the big competitor Marvel rushes from blockbuster to blockbuster at the worldwide box office, the number of visitors of Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Co. often caused a roller coaster ride of emotions in the past. In the so-called DC Extended Universe there was neither consistency nor stringency. The plan to venture into new spheres of the box office with Hollywood megastar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson didn’t really work out either. Reason enough for Warner to pull the ripcord and James Gunn as co-CEO to start a new business.

James Gunn rearranges the DC Universe

The maker of the Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies is considered along with his partner Peter Saffron as the last hope to turn the tide of the DC Universe. Because Warner has long since started to focus on box office hits like Joker or The Batman from the film universe Justice League to make independent. Should further cinema productions like The Flash not ignite, a complete reboot would be conceivable.

However, it is not that far yet. With Shazam! Fury of the Gods The next DC Universe movie is coming up on Thursday, March 16, 2023. However, it may be doubted whether the second superhero spectacle around Captain Marvel becomes a big box office hit. This would probably be a blockbuster of caliber one Superman Movies necessary.
