It’s no Dark Universe, but James Gunn does have big prepare for how the various motion pictures, TV (live action and animated), and video games of the DCU can be linked. In October of this year, Warner Bros. Discovery HBIC David Zaslav fired Walter Hamada as head of DC Movies and changed him with Gunn and Peter Safran as co-HBs. Gunn has actually been speaking to individuals about his plans for comic-book movies/TV. On November 27, Gunn tweeted that he and Safran are planning on having the DCU “linked” throughout motion pictures, tv, and animation. A follow-up tweet put computer games under that same banner. Now, “linked” does not necessarily mean shared universe. Or even multiverse, for that matter. So the animated world of Harley Quinn (where Harley is in a dedicated relationship with Toxin Ivy and recently joined the Batfam) does not have to square itself against the Snyderverse (where Harley is directly, and also dead). However if Kite Man desired a live-action spinoff instead of the animated one that has previously been teased … possibly some Doom Patrol folks could appear?
The specifics of the Gunn/Safran ten-year strategy have actually not yet been divulged, but Gunn hinted that more will more than likely be revealed prior to SDCC 2033. Likewise, there may be a Booster Gold story in the works. When a fan on Twitter asked about BG, Gunn said that “Booster was the MOST requested character when I asked people on Mastodon what character they ‘d most like to see on screen. I’m not creating stories by public vote, but I found it remarkable however.” So there’s some wish for everyone’s preferred future dummy.
