DC Announces its First Slate of Future Movies and TV Shows

Marvel Studios is the king of the shared universe when it comes to movies and TV shows. The studio started the universe with 2008’s Iron Man, and this has now become one of the hottest entertainment properties of recent times. Its main rival DC has tried the same method, but sadly it hasn’t been that successful. Well DC is now trying to kickstart its shared universe again with its own DCU just announced.

DC’s James Gunn and Peter Safran have announced this week a ton of new movies and TV shows from the DCU. These shows are going to be separate from the popular ‘Snyderverse’ movies that started with 2013’s Man of Steel movie.

James Gunn announced the slate on his official Twitter page. You can read the list below.

  • Superman: Legacy (Movie)
  • The Brave and the Bold (Movie)
  • Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow (Movie)
  • The Authority (Movie)
  • Swamp Thing (Movie)
  • Creature Commandos (Cartoon)
  • Waller (TV show)
  • Lanterns (TV show)
  • Booster Gold (TV show)
  • Paradise Lost (TV show)

The only movie with a release date is Superman: Legacy. The movie will have a newer actor and will be released in North America on July 11th, 2025. Outside of the DCU, The Batman Part II will be released on October 3rd, 2025. It will remain separate from the rebooted DCU universe movies and TV shows outlined above.

This is just a small slice of DC’s 10-year plan for its own shared universe. Details about video games are reportedly being announced at a later date. It will be interesting to see if this slate from DC can prove to be more popular than what Zack Snyder started over a decade ago.
