Batman: Robin

from Karsten Scholz
James Gunn spent several minutes commenting on the future of the DC Universe via Twitter and made various exciting announcements. A total of ten new films and series are currently planned. The Batman Part II will run outside of the new DCU.

James Gunn is not only a screenwriter, director and producer (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Suicide Squad), but also co-CEO of DC Studios since October 2022, together with Peter Safran. Their mission: to bring the DC Universe on a successful path on the big screen and in series format that can at least compete with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The key takeaways from the tweet read as follows:

  • James Gunn describes once again what the two CEOs want to achieve: In the future, the films, series, games and animated works within the DC Universe should be connected. The same, framing storyline should be told across media and pushed further and further. The characters within the story should be consistent even when they appear in multiple works, and then they should be played by the same actors.
  • All works running outside of this DC Universe should be appropriately identified.
  • The Flash is set to reboot the DC Universe on June 15, 2023.
  • Aquaman 2: The Lost Kingdom will then be based on The Flash from December 21, 2023. Both films then lead to the first new projects that James Gunn presents below – overall, the concept of the new authors includes a project plan for the next eight to ten years.

  • the feature film Superman: Legacy (this is where the new DCU really gets going, to be released in July 2025)
  • the live-action HBO series Lanterns (True Detective with extraterrestrials)
  • the motion picture The Authority (brings WildStorm characters into the DCU)
