James Gunn is still toying with his future plans for the DC Universe, and his latest hint seems to be a nod to a comic book miniseries, Kingdom Come.
Gunn posted his latest hint on Twitter, with a short, sweet caption: “Making plans.” The origins of the DC image date back to the ’90s with the release of Kingdom Come, and that same piece of art also appeared as a cover on the four-part series.

Though Gunn’s tweet isn’t enough to say a strict adaptation is on the way, may indicate that upcoming DCU projects will borrow some ideas from the material. In the original, Superman stands at the center of an older and a younger generation of superheroes. As the ages collide, the turmoil among the superheroes becomes as much of an issue as managing some of the world’s villains.
As for the details that circulate around this image, it is unknown, since Gunn has not responded to confirm what his tweet will mean for future DC projects. However, his most recent responses include a quick exchange with Guardians of the Galaxy actress Pom Klementieff.
After a fan tweeted his hope that Klementieff was part of the plan, Gunn just responder: “Pom is always part of our plans!”
Gunn has taken to Twitter to hint at some other thoughts on the DCU and where it’s headed. Earlier this month, Gunn shared a captionless photo of Mister Terrific, leading fans to speculate that Michael Holt will appear at some point. The CEO of DC Studios also pointed out that the new DCU movies and video games will share the same canon.
And while DC fans have high hopes for trending topics like #SaveLegendsofTomorrow and #ReleaseTheAyerCut, Gunn seems focused on what’s to come for new entries. Once again, he opened up on Twitter to explain DC’s current position, writing: “our initial focus is on the story going forward, hammering out the new DCU, and telling the Greatest Story Ever Told across multiple movies, TV series and animation projects.
