The Creature Commandos were created by J. M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderic, with the team making its first appearance in the pages of 1980’s Weird War Tales #93. Their leader General Matthew Shrieve made an appearance in the third season of The CW’s Arrow, with Marc Singer bringing the character to life.
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room and a unified storyline across film, teleivsion, animation and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
