Warner Bros. Discovery is reportedly frustrated with the status of JJ Abrams’ several DC projects.
Following his work on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, JJ Abrams and Bad Robot secured a $250 million deal with Warner Bros. in 2019. Under the agreement, Abrams is developing several DC projects that include a Superman reboot, Constantine, Madame X, and Batman: Caped Crusader.
JJ Under Pressure?
With the studio changing under new CEO David Zaslav, The Hollywood Reporter revealed there’s some “frustration” because JJ Abrams and Bad Robot “laid claim to a number of DC characters but has yet to get anything on the air.” The report also mentions Warner Bros. has received scripts for Constantine and the Madame X pilot.
Lucasfilm and director J. J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come.
Directed by JJ Abrams, the film stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. The late Carrie Fisher appears as General Leia Organa by using previously unreleased footage shot for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
