As DC continues to wrack up controversy after controversy—from Ezra Miller’s violent outbursts to Zachary Levi’s seemingly anti-vax tweet—the studio pushed past the noise today to announce its upcoming slate. During a secret press event last night–followed by a video posted to Twitter—new bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran announced what is coming next from the superhero universe.
Just a few months ago, the DC Extended Universe faced a major shake-up when Gunn and Safran were named heads of the film, TV, and animation divisions at the company. Now, after name-brand folks like Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill and Patty Jenkins have parted ways with the franchise and its storytelling begins to unravel, the new bosses have unveiled what’s to come from the DC Universe. In short, DC is about to start fresh.
But first, yet another big name is departing from DC. After 10 years of helming DC’s array of popular CW series, like The Flash and Batwoman, Greg Berlanti has parted ways with the franchise, noted by The Hollywood Reporter. This means that his upcoming Green Lantern HBO Max series has been scrapped, but it’s set to be replaced with Lanterns, a True Detective-inspired saga about space cops.
