Building a Connected DC Universe: The Future of DC Studios

DC Studios is one of the most beloved and iconic film and television production companies of all time. In recent years, however, the company has faced criticism for a lack of connectivity in its various film and television projects. To address this, co-CEO James Gunn and Peter have been tasked with making sure the DCU is connected across all media, with consistent actors and a shared storyline.

Over the next year, four major projects will be released that are a part of the first chapter of this new era of DC Studios, called “Gods and Monsters.” Shazam Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle, and Aquaman 2 will all be part of this chapter, leading the way for an eight to ten year plan of storytelling across film, television, and gaming.

The first project in this plan is an animated series called “Creature Commandos.” This series will feature characters moving into animation, with the same actor playing their voice as in live action. Next up is “Waller,” a live-action series about Amanda Waller, who will team up with members of Team Peacemaker. This series is being created by Crystal Henry and Jeremy Carver.

The true beginning of the DCU is “Superman Legacy,” a film written by James Gunn that will be released in theaters on July 11, 2025. Following this, a big HBO television series called “Lanterns” will tell the story of Green Lanterns Jon Stewart and Hal Jordan as they work to protect Precinct Earth.

A film called “The Authority” is next in the lineup. This is a passion project of James Gunn and will be based on the wildstorm characters. The Authority is a group of superheroes who believe the world is broken and want to fix it by any means necessary. Another television series, “Paradise Lost,” will explore the birthplace of Wonder Woman, Paradise Island.

“The Brave and the Bold” is a television series that will focus on Batman and his son Damien Wayne. Based on Grant Morrison’s comic book run, this series will introduce the bat family to the DCU. “Booster Gold,” an HBO Max series, will tell the story of a loser from the future who uses future technology to become a superhero.

“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” will be turned into a big science fiction film, while “Swamp Thing” will be a dark horror story about the origins of the monster. Although it is outside of the rest of the DCU, it will still feed into the other stories in the plan.

These are just some of the exciting projects that are in the works at DC Studios. With James Gunn and Peter at the helm, fans can expect a connected and consistent DCU across all media.
