James Gunn is clearing up reports about Wonder Woman’s DC Universe future.
Last night, Variety reported that Wonder Woman isn’t a part of the first three years of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe plans. As per usual, Gunn took to his official Twitter page to comment on the Variety report, shutting down the notion that Wonder Woman won’t be featured during the early years of the new DC Universe. It’s unclear if Gal Gadot is still attached to the role.
During a series of tweets on his page, James Gunn also revealed that he has mapped out the next eight to ten years of the DC Universe. A few of projects from his DCU slate are set to be announced later this month, though Gunn has yet to set an exact date for the reveals.
In December 2022, James Gunn broke that he is writing the script of the next Superman movie, which is set to focus on a younger version of the DC Comics hero. As such, Henry Cavill won’t be back as Superman. Gunn and his DC Studios partner Peter Safran have been working on a DC Universe roadmap for weeks now, with insiders describing it as a “broad but not blanket reset.”
A new era for the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran are now in charge of DC’s film, television and animations efforts at Warner Bros. Discovery, bringing the company’s comic book-related assets under one roof. Gunn is said to be focusing on the creative direction of the DCU while Safran is handling things that are related to business and production.
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.
