Since the merger, a lot has changed at Warner Bros. Discovery, including the direction of DC Universe, which is now being overseen by James Gunn and Peter Safran. The former teases what’s coming up for the franchise’s lineup of shows.
Many things have changed as a result of the Warner Bros. Discovery merger, including the company’s management and its upcoming initiatives, like DC Studios and the DC Universe they are creating.
While they have lately been under fire for the cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 and the recent revelation that Henry Cavill will not be playing Superman again soon after his cameo in Black Adam, new ideas are in the works for DC Universe, as James Gunn teased on Twitter.
In the same threat, James Gunn gave the explanation for why Henry Cavill won’t be playing Superman again: one of the DC Universe’s ten-year schedule of projects includes a Superman film that he will be scripting that would focus on the character’s early years, which means Cavill wouldn’t fit in the story.
Having said that, Gunn has stated that he is not blocking Henry Cavill from joining the DC Universe: “Among those on the slate is Superman. In the initial stages, our story will be focusing on an earlier part of Superman’s life, so the character will not be played by Henry Cavill.”
As for other DC stars, they include Gal Gadot, who is still a part of the DC Universe and will appear in Wonder Woman 3; Jason Momoa, meanwhile, may be leaving; and Ezra Miller, who has a growing list of problems, may be replaced.
Last November, James Gunn and Peter Safran were chosen as the co-CEOs of DC Studios. They will be in charge of overseeing the development of all media related to DC, including movies and television series, as they create a new DC Universe over the course of 10 years.
