The new CEOs of DC Studios, James Gunn and Peter Safran have begun work on an eight to ten year plan. for DC movies, TV series, animation and more.
As The Hollywood Reporter reports, Gunn said during a company meeting that he and Safran had been working with “some of the best thinkers in the industry” to draw up a ten-year plan for upcoming DC releases involving Batman, Superman and other characters.
“The opportunity to make DC as great as it can be and should be is why I’m doing this job, because I know Peter and I can do it,” Gunn said.
“We’ve spent the last two days with a group of some of the best thinkers in the industry, the best screenwriters in the industry, starting to map out that eight- to 10-year plan of what’s going to be on film, on television. , in animation, across the board for these characters.”
The pair are moving fast, as they weren’t named as DC Studios’ new heads until November 1, and the entertainment company seems to have found its Kevin Feige-esque leaders at Marvel, given the extensive plan already in place. is being made.
Gunn previously said he would focus on building “the new DCU” rather than fixate on canceled or past projects like Legends of Tomorrow or the original cut of Suicide Squad, and his appointment as CEO has been approved by several major DC players. Aquaman’s Jason Momoa said it’s a dream come true working under Gunn and Safran, while Superman’s Henry Cavill said he’s looking forward to sitting down and having “long, long conversations with [Gunn]”.
