James Gunn’s DCU plans are two months away from being revealed

James Gunn, DC Films, CEO, DCU plan

James Gunn and Peter Safran will present their DCU plans to Warner Bros. Discovery in two months. That means WBD is rolling into 2023 with a bold new path carved by two creatives who’ve already proven their worth time and again. Could this be the end of the studio’s seemingly directionless flailing and dodging of Snyderverse fans? I hope so because I want nothing more than for DC to get a shot in the arm from Gunn and Safran’s grand plan.

While fans may have to wait for the duo to share their 10-year outline with the general public, Gunn is teasing character additions regularly. Gunn’s tweets are not a confirmation of projects being in the works. Still, it’s worth noting he’s shared images of DC’s Lobo and Mr. Terrific. Is Gunn not-so-secretly revealing characters he’s hoping to bring to the DCU, or is he trolling us with teases for projects outlined in his upcoming presentation?

The news about Gunn and Safran’s DCU plans comes from The Wrap. The outlet reported the duo is sharing their ideas with DC in two months, and Gunn confirmed the update on Twitter. Unfortunately, the plan is for Warner Bros. Discovery executives only. While there’s a chance the program could leak, I’m sure WBD will keep that outline under lock and key until a proper rollout can kick things into high gear.

What characters or teams do you hope will be a part of Gunn and Safran’s DCU plans? I desperately want a good Green Lantern project or something super-obscure and unique, like an adaptation of Gail Simone’s The Movement. DC has a chance to turn its cinematic universe around under new leadership, and I think a mix of top-tier heroes and underdogs would be a great way to start. Feel free to let us know what you’re hoping for when DC reveals its plans in the comments below.
