The DC Studios team teases epic plans for the future

A new era of movies, TV shows, and animations based on DC characters will begin with the formation of DC Studios under the leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran. Formerly behind the smash hits The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker, the duo has adapted DC mythos with a new take on the DC universe.

"This was such a unique opportunity to tell one great overarching story," Safran reportedly said. "One beautiful big story across film, television, gaming, live-action, and animation." "I love Superman and I love Batman," Gunn teased.

"I love their interaction. I love the ways in which they're the same and the ways in which they are completely different." "David, I just have to say quickly that I know that you are doing all this because you love these characters too, and you love the possibility, and the hope that they represent and that has been clear to us from the beginning," Gunn continued.

"We would have never considered this if that wasn't the case, so, thank you."

How does James Gunn's new role at DC Comics fit into the DC Universe?

"[For them], running DC Studios is a passion project, not just a job," Zaslav explained during the company's Q3 earnings call.

"James is a brilliant storyteller who has the distinction of being the first and only filmmaker to direct the movie for both Marvel and DC. Peter's a prolific producer whose credits include DC's highest grossing movie, Aquaman, as well as the entire Conjuring universe, the most successful horror franchise of all time.

I could not be more thrilled to have them join our ranks. And I'm excited for what is to come. I spent a lot of time over the last few months with James and Peter, talking about our strategy and long-term plans for the future of DC across TV, animation, and film.

They have a powerful vision and blueprint that will drive a more unified creative approach. [It] will enable us to realize the full value of one of the world's most iconic franchises. They're hard at work right now."
