James Gunn Has Revealed His Version of the MCU’s Phases

Supergirl, Booster Gold, and Batman and Robin in DC Comics

On Tuesday, James Gunn released a small glimpse of his and Peter Safran’s 10-year plan for the DC Universe (DCU). Gunn and Safran were appointed as co-CEOs of the DCU by David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery following Warner Bros. merger with Discovery, Inc., on April 8, 2022. As the CEO of the newly formed Warner Bros. Discovery, Zaslav quickly set his sights on revitalizing the DCU. This included the shocking cancellation of Batgirl, which was in post-production, as he emphasized quality over quantity and theatrical films above streaming exclusives.

However, it was Zaslav who initially raised the idea for a ten-year plan for the DCU that would create a truly interconnected universe. He reiterated wanting the new plan to specifically focus on the biggest names in DC Comics, such as Superman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman. He has since turned things over to Gunn and Safran, who began making some surprising moves. They started by retiring most of the old regiment as they scrapped Wonder Woman 3 and announced they would not be bringing Henry Cavill’s Superman back. There were also talks of recasting Batman and having Jason Momoa leave Aquaman behind to portray Lobo instead.
