As soon as the brand new 12 months rolled round, the ready sport known as for a Spinal Faucet loving eleven. In fact, we’re speaking concerning the tens of millions of DCU followers ready (considerably) patiently for DC Studios co-heads James Gunn & Peter Safran to start releasing particular particulars on their 8-10 12 months plan (following phrase that Gunn was writing a big-screen Superman film). Properly, the kettle fires of anticipation and hypothesis obtained loads of gasoline thrown on them yesterday after Jason Momoa (Aquaman and the Misplaced Kingdom) shared a video of him establishing a gathering with the top of Gunn, Safran & Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) David Zaslav the place it appeared fairly clear that the actor may have a future with DC Studios (extra on that beneath). So what did we study from all this? Except for the apparent, Momoa is stuffed with “nice” information he obtained, ie. Okay, a number of issues…
Between the assembly with Momoa and Matt Reeves (Batman) confirming that his assembly will occur quickly, it appears like Gunn & Safran have reached the stage the place they’re getting everybody on the identical web page earlier than issues go public. This falls consistent with the timeline Gunn launched a number of months in the past, and whereas folks could also be getting impatient? There are eleven days left within the month, and within the popular culture universe, that is a lifetime.
Primarily based on Momoa’s video, it appears like Zaslav is instantly concerned in these conferences (or at the very least Momoa’s assembly). Not less than that is how I am studying it. It does not matter if he was bodily there or not. That stated, Momoa could also be thanking Zaslav as a result of he is aware of Gunn & Safran communicate for Zaslav since they reply on to him. However for the extent of change within the DCU anticipated, Zaslav’s direct involvement could be a great “united entrance” message to ship.
If Zaslav is concerned within the conferences (in any capability), then meaning Gunn & Safran have already laid out their plans, holding their respective timelines on monitor. And whereas that could be a risk, I am taking the dearth of leaks and “sources” on anybody who will print their shade as a great signal. As a result of everyone knows how briskly complaints of unhealthy information journey.
As you’ll be able to see from the footage beneath from the video he posted on Thursday, Momoa talked about that he was simply as enthusiastic about leaving his WBD/DCU assembly that day as he was 4 years in the past. And whereas he could not reveal any particulars, Momoa provided Gunn, Safran and Zaslav plenty of love for the “actually nice information” he had obtained. And simply to drive dwelling the purpose that some nice Momoa information ought to be coming quickly, the actor ended the video by blowing kisses to the longer term. Personally? I am voting for a Momoa-led Lobo streaming collection…
DC Studios: Superman/Batman Updates
To nobody’s shock, the way forward for The Man of Metal is on the high of many DCU followers’ lists relating to in search of extra info on who the brand new Superman can be for the Gunn-penned characteristic movie. And whereas that alone could be sufficient strain, throw into the combo that individual would take over Henry Cavill, and you’ll think about the necessity to get this proper. So when somebody on Twitter tweeted the rumor that Jacob Elordi (EUFOR) was thought of final week, Gunn used the chance to supply a basic replace and a few readability on the movie and the forged. “My ideas are that no person has been forged as Superman but. Casting, as is nearly all the time the case with me, will occur after the script is completed or near accomplished, and it is not. We’ll be saying a number of issues shortly, however the casting of Superman won’t be one among them,” Gunn tweeted. This is a have a look at Gunn’s tweet that gives a actuality verify about The Man of Metal’s future:
“They [Gunn and Safran] they’ve been wonderful. […] We even have to satisfy within the subsequent few weeks as a result of they wish to discuss to me concerning the broad plan, after which they wish to hear the BatVerse plan. We’re simply getting collectively to speak about all of this. Look, I am excited to listen to what they are going to do. The BatVerse factor, as James has stated, and as Peter has stated, is type of its personal factor that they are letting us do,” Reeves informed Collider throughout an interview earlier this month in assist of the fifteenth anniversary of Cloverfieldrevealing that he would quickly meet with the co-heads of DC Studios.
One of many important focuses of the assembly is to check notes as a manner to ensure future plans do not “stumble upon one another” transferring ahead. “I had this dream of how I needed it to play out, and that is a part of what I’ll discuss to them about in a few weeks. They are going to discuss to me about what they’re doing. of their ten-year plan or course what is going on to occur within the close to future, so we perceive that we’re not — it is air visitors management — we do not wish to stumble upon one another. We wish to assist one another,” Reeves defined. “I am actually excited. I am actually excited to listen to about what they’re doing and to work with them. It should be nice.”
