DC Studios’ bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran have announced a new slate of TV shows and films as part of the revamped DCEU. This also includes the new Green Lantern series. Gunn and Safran, who took over the production company’s creative operations in 2022, have shared plans for the reboot of the DC Universe.
During a private press event, both Gunn and Safran announced new TV and film projects, including Batman 2, the Superman reboot (without Henery Cavil), the Wonder Woman prequel series Paradise Lost, and arguably one of their most exciting new projects, Lanterns. All of these new projects are part of the first phase of the rebooted DC Universe called ‘Chapter 1: Gods & Monsters’. While we are looking forward to all of the new films and tv shows being planned in this phase, we are especially excited about Lanterns which will stream on HBO Max.
