It’s well known that DC movies have stood out in the last decade as especially controversial, always dividing critics and fans, racking up hundreds of millions at the box office but never at the level of Marvel Studios. When Discovery Inc. acquired Warner last year, CEO David Zaslav He promised to bring the troubled saga to life, naming James Gunn as president of DC Studios and betting on a mind that knows the dynamics of Marvel Studios thanks to his work on Guardians of the Galaxy (91%) and sequels.
several weeks ago, James Gunn He declared that he has a reboot planned for the DC Studios superheroes, an assertion that left fans shocked. The firing of Henry Cavill, the departure of Ben Affleck, the cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 with Gal Gadot, the decision not to make Zack Snyder’s Justice League canon (82%), among other things, increased the fandom’s disagreement regarding the decisions of Gunn. But Mark Ruffalo He does not lose confidence and in his recent stay at the Emerald City Comic-Con he commented that Marvel should be afraid for all the good things that are brewing in DC.

Marvel should be sweating because James Gunn is a really talented filmmaker and I think he’s going to be amazing for that franchise.
James Gunn already confirmed that a new Superman movie is already in development and that it will have a different actor, someone younger who will star in an alternate adventure of the man of steel. It is worth mentioning that the director also announced that all the films that have been made from DC are part of a great multiverse, including Batman (85%) by Matt Reeves and Joker (91%) by Todd Phillips; This was stated in the conference that Warner offered to the media and social networks at the end of January (via Collider):
Yes, DC is a multiverse, but we are going to focus on a universe from that multiverse. And if something isn’t DCU, we’ll make that very clear. As strictly for adults as Todd Phillips, Joker, or, you know, children’s animation like Teen Titans Go, we’re going to make it very clear that those are DC Elseworlds in the same way that we’re doing it in the comic books.
At DC Studios, James Gunn He has the same position as Kevin Feige at Marvel Studios, so a gigantic responsibility has remained on his shoulders: knowing what the fans want and giving them just that; Kevin He is an exceptional producer and has spent decades honing his skills in selling to superhero movie consumers; very soon we will find out if James He has what it takes to keep up.
The next movie from DC Studios (and which is part of the previous universe) is Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Although the fate of the characters is unknown, since the reboot is on the way, the launch plans remain firm and will hit theaters on March 16.
