Gunn, Safran are future of the DC Universe

Adding producer Peter Safran and director James Gunn to the DC Universe is the first step towards a brighter future. These two men both have previous experience with successful superhero movies and know what it takes to create a thriving universe.


The release of “The Flash” on June 16, 2023, will mark the beginning of a 10-year plan to propel the DC (Detective Comic) Universe towards a structured, planned and successful future.
Director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran officially became co-CEO’s of DC Studios in November 2022.
It is now mid-2023 and the two have announced a 10-year plan to get the DC Universe back on track.
The past 15 years of DC content have been very hectic.
Many TV shows and movies have been released about beloved characters but have all been constructed separately.
This led to a disconnect in the universe.
No relation between projects and random storylines gradually made the universe fall apart.
However, following the release of “Joker” in 2019 and “The Batman” in 2022, there is still hope for the DC Universe.
These two movies scored very high in ratings and gave people a taste of the universe: not bright and flashy, but dark and disturbing.
The release of “The Flash” is going to be the string that ties the universe back together.
Gunn and Safran have overseen the creation and production of the movie and made sure it would make sense with what is to follow.
Right now, there is a ton of DC Universe content that all takes place in different timelines and universes.
After “The Flash,” the universe resets, officially breaking everything off and starting new.
After this movie releases, the next few years of content is already taking action.
“Blue Beetle” releases in August, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” releases in December and three other projects are in the works for the following years: “Joker: Folie à Deux,” “Superman: Legacy” and “The Batman: Part 2.”
All of these movies will be connected in some way, shape or form, whether it is through Easter eggs or direct references.
There will no longer be a disconnect between the universe we all know and love.
After these two movies, many reports of other heroes and villains have been hinted at.
Some of these include Supergirl, Robin, Nightwing, Swamp Thing, Lobo, Green Lantern, Superman, Black Canary, Batgirl, Wonderwoman and, possibly, a Man of Steel sequel.
After the recent failures produced in the DC Universe, the audience is looking forward to having new people in charge.
Awful movies like “Black Adam” and “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” make the upcoming movies even more exciting.
The next 10 years of DC Universe content will create a strong foundation for all future projects and, hopefully, be the starting point for the DC Universe to take the stage from Marvel Studios.
