Now that it’s been confirmed pre-production on Superman: Legacy is now underway, James Gunn might be compelled to area much more speculative questions than ever about his impending DCU reboot, which is hardly ultimate when he’s presently within the midst of selling the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
However, it does point out that the overhauled superhero franchise intends to hit the bottom working, one thing that positively can’t be stated about J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot’s plans for the cavalcade of comedian ebook characters Warner Bros. has at its disposal. In reality, Gunn and Peter Safran have achieved extra in 4 months than the Star Wars and Star Trek director has in 4 years, which is one step short of embarrassing.
Since assuming management of DC Studios in November of final 12 months, Gunn and Safran unveiled a complete slate of tasks for Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters, with James Mangold confirmed to write and direct Swamp Thing alongside the latest reveal of all the Creature Commandos principal solid, to not point out the aforementioned Legacy.
Meanwhile, since signing a deal price a reported $250 million again in 2019, Bad Robot has seen a rebooted Constantine collection go up in smoke, whereas Batman: Caped Crusader was dropped by HBO Max and shopped elsewhere, with other titles including Zatanna, Justice League Dark, Madame X, and even his personal Superman story being written alongside Ta-Nehisi Coates going radio silent.
You’d think about that Gunn isn’t pocketing $250 million, both, so Abrams better hope that Constantine sequel happens simply so he can get his title on a DC undertaking.
