By Shobith C Feb 27, 2024

Over a year has passed since James Gunn and Peter Safran unveiled the initial projects comprising the new DC Universe. From the highly anticipated “Superman: Legacy” to a series centered around Booster Gold, a Swamp Thing film, and more, this unveiling was just the beginning of what’s known as DC Universe Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters. However, Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav has now revealed that fans can anticipate further details about the franchise sooner than anticipated.

During the company’s recent earnings call, Zaslav provided insights into the direction of the new DC Universe under the leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran. “I’ve had a glimpse into what James and Peter are doing, and it really does serve as an exciting indicator of where the new DC is headed under their leadership,” Zaslav stated. “There’ll be more you’ll hear from them in the months ahead…We’ll have James and Peter take you through in the next few months a full spectrum of what they see over the next 10 years.”

Gunn and Safran have outlined their vision for the DC Universe, foreseeing the first two chapters lasting between eight to 10 years. With Zaslav’s remarks, fans could potentially learn about the remaining shows and movies comprising Chapter 1, as well as the entirety of Chapter 2, within this year.

During a press event in January, Gunn addressed comparisons to Marvel, emphasizing the unique approach of the DC Universe. “A lot of people think it’s going to be Marvel 2.0, and definitely I learned a lot of stuff at Marvel. I think that we have a lot of differences,” Gunn explained. “We are telling a big, huge, central story that is like Marvel, except for, I think that we’re a lot more planned out than Marvel from the beginning because we’ve gotten a group of writers together to work that story out completely. But we’re also creating a universe that is like Star Wars, where there’s different times, different places, different things, or Game of Thrones, where characters are a little bit more morally complex.”

The DC Universe will officially commence with “Creature Commandos,” for which a release date is yet to be announced, followed by “Superman: Legacy,” scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
