DC Comics productions will see films and series share a connected universe as at Marvel, confirmed the new directors of the super-heroic studio.
The change at DC Comics is now. After trying to establish a timeline over the past decade to counter eternal rival Marvel, the superhero franchise is going to undergo a total reboot, orchestrated by new DC studio directors Peter Safran and the director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy).
This new era divided into several phases will open with a first chapter entitled “Gods and Monsters” (“gods and watches” in French), which will see new interpreters slipping into the shoes of the most emblematic heroes of the DC universe: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl…
This brand new connected universe will also make it possible to connect series and films stamped DC Comics, to form an immense chronology like that of Marvel Studios films, extended by the series broadcast on Disney+.
“Peacemaker is a great example of how this system is going to work, and that’s what we’re going to do with this huge story that we’re going to tell” summarized Peter Safran during an interview with theDC Comics, in reference to the spin-off series of the movie The Suicide Squad.
It will also be on television that this new DC era will begin, since the Lanterns series, a buddy-movie à la True Detective bringing together the two Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart, will be responsible for officially starting this first chapter, and to introduce the first elements of the general plot of the franchise.
The start of this new phase of DC Comics studios is scheduled for 2025, and remember that the Warner pass offering the HBO Max catalog will be offered next March on the Amazon Prime Video platform.
