2024 will mark a new stage in the DC Extended Universe, which they will undertake James Gunn and Peter Safran as bosses of DC Studios. Before, the full stop will put it Aquaman and the lost kingdomthe sequel that once again has James Wan as director and Jason Momoa wearing the trident of the king of the seven seas, and which will hit theaters in Spain on December 20.
And then, everything that preceded the premiere of the animated series Creature Commandoswhich would arrive on HBO Max next year, It will no longer be canon. There will be a reboot with new stories and faces, a reset of everything seen so far. Of everything? Via Deadline we collect that, for now, three interpreters would be saved from burning who would continue with their respective roles, as Gunn explained.
One of them would be the young Xolo Maridueña that he would repeat in his role as Blue Beetle, despite the fact that his film adventure released last summer will pass with more pain than glory at the cinema box office. Barely 125 million dollars for a production that cost 104 million, plus promotional expenses.
But, ahead with the Maridueña Blue Beetle, as well as two others. Viola Davis will continue playing the government agent Amanda Waller introduced in The Suicide Squad as well as John Cena as owner of The peacemaker in the HBO Max series and of which a second season has already been confirmed.
“Nothing is canon until Creature Commandos next year (a sort of appetizer to the DCU), and then a deeper dive into the universe with Superman: Legacy. “It’s very human to want to understand everything, all the time, but I think it’s also okay to be confused about what’s going on in the DCU considering that no one has seen anything yet.”commented James Gunn.
After Creature Commandos would arrive Superman: Legacythe first feature film from the renewed DCU that will be released in theaters and will feature David Corenswet like Clark Kent, Rachel Brosnahan embodying Lois Lane and James Gunn taking charge of both the directing tasks and the script.
No wonder, it would be the official inauguration of the new DC extended universe and forming part of the productions that will arrive under the mantle of the so-called Chapter 1: Gods and monsterswith the clue that Gunn has also given us, advancing that in the next productions Personal stories will matter more than connections between several films or series.
