DC Studios Unveils Ten New Projects


DC Studios has revealed a slate of ten new film and television projects, anchored by James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy.

Set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy will see the hero balance his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. Next in the pipeline will be the previously announced The Batman—Part II from Matt Reeves, slated for release on October 3, 2025.

The other new film projects include The Authority, in which WildStorm characters join the DC Universe as members of The Authority take matters into their own hands; The Brave and the Bold, which will introduce its Batman and Robin in a father-son story inspired by Grant Morrison’s comic series; Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, based on Tom King’s recent comics that present Supergirl in a way that viewers are not used to seeing; and Swamp Thing, investigating the dark origins of the titular character.

Upcoming television projects, all for HBO Max, include Creature Commandos, a seven-episode animated show written by Gunn in which Amanda Waller creates a black ops team out of monstrous prisoners, and Waller, featuring Team Peacemaker, starring Viola Davis and written by Christal Henry (Watchmen) and Jeremy Carver (Supernatural).

Also on the television slate are Booster Gold, in which the titular character uses basic technology from the future to pretend to be a superhero in the present; Lanterns, an event series following intergalactic cops John Stewart and Hal Jordan; and Paradise Lost, focusing on the genesis and political intrigue of Themyscira, home of the Amazons and birthplace of Wonder Woman.

“As we craft the plan for DC Studios, we are thrilled to share with fans the first ten stories they can expect from the unified DC Universe, featuring some of our most well-known characters as well as the next generation of marquee characters,” said Peter Safran, co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios. “Chapter 1 tells cohesive stories that highlight love, compassion and the innate goodness of the human spirit, all designed to minimize audience confusion and maximize audience engagement across platforms.”

Gunn, who is also co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios, added, “Superman: Legacy is the true foundation of our creative vision for the DC Universe. Not only is Superman an iconic part of DC lore, he is also a favorite character for comic book readers, viewers of earlier movies and fans around the world. I can’t wait to introduce our version of Superman, who audiences will be able to follow and get to know across films, movies, animation and gaming.”
