DC fans are eagerly waiting to see what’s in store for James Gunn and Peter Safran in the DC Universe, as the pair now serve as co-CEOs of DC Studios. Gunn has been vocal about providing updates about the franchise on social media, including when we can expect some major announcements for their slate. That included confirmation that those announcements will be announced sometime this month — and in a new social media comment, Gunn hinted at what fans can expect. In a comment on his latest Instagram postGun confirmed that he and Safran won’t be revealing their 8-10 year plan this January, but rather “just a few Chapter 1 projects.”
It will remain to be seen if those few projects actually include the ones we expect, including the Gunn-penned Superman Reboot and the second season of peace maker, or brand new movies and HBO Max TV shows. It’s also interesting that he refers to the first part of the list as a “chapter” – we’ll have to wait and see if that rebranding becomes official from now on, to differentiate from Marvel’s “phases”.
What is James Gunn’s new role in DC?
As of last November, Gunn and Safran are co-presidents and co-CEOs of DC Studios, overseeing the vast majority of film and TV projects under their umbrella. While there’s no indication of exactly what new projects we’ll see during the duo’s four-year tenure, fans and even other creators in the superhero space are definitely excited to see what’s in store.
“We are honored to be the stewards of the DC characters we’ve loved since we were kids,” John and Safran said in a statement. “We look forward to collaborating with the world’s most talented writers, directors, and actors to create an integrated, multi-layered universe that still allows for individual expression by the artists involved. Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the established DC characters is only equaled by our commitment to the wonders of human possibility that these characters represent. We’re excited to revitalize the theatrical experience around the world as we tell some of the biggest, most beautiful, most amazing stories ever.”
