Warner Bros. has decided not to move forward with Ava Duvernay’s New Gods and James Wan’s The Trench.
Ava Duvernay and James Wan were developing two separate DC Films that focused on legendary comic characters like the New Gods and an Aquaman spinoff that focused on the kingdom of the Trench. Fans were eagerly awaiting for updates on the two projects, but nothing was announced for months. Now, we have some bad news for fans who we’re excited for the two movies.
Earlier today, Duvernay teased that WB had made a new decision regarding New Gods and now we know what it is. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. and DC Films are no longer developing New Gods and The Trench. Deadline reports that The Trench was canceled due to Wan’s Aquaman sequel schedule and New Gods was shelved due to it exceeding parameters beyond a solo movie.
