Equally, for a warm minute there were approximately 4 diverse Bruce Waynes/Batmans floating about (performed on Tv set by Titans‘ Iain Glen and Batwoman‘s Warren Christie as a lookalike, and by Ben Affleck and Robert Pattinson in flicks), though Clark Kent/Superman in current years has concurrently taken the form of Tyler Hoechlin (on Supergirl and in Superman & Lois) and Henry Cavill (in films).
But as Gunn and Safran’s ideas little by little but surely occur to fruition, these disconnects are poised to adjust noticeably.

In fielding tweeted abide by-up Qs, Gunn claimed that “some” long term animated fare will carry on to be standalone in nature… yes, movie video games, will also share a much better connection to a increased DCU… and yes, he will “continue writing & directing choose DC projects” when fulfilling the responsibilities of his lofty new title.
In addition to getting palms-on with any present and long term DC tasks, Gunn stays a section of the MCU for a shorter whilst lengthier. His canonical The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday getaway Particular just commenced streaming on Disney+, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters on Could 5, 2023.
As for what DC figures may possibly finally get a proper showcase under his and Safran’s eyesight, Gunn made no claims, but he did be aware, “Interestingly, Booster [Gold] was the MOST asked for character when I requested people on Mastodon what character they’d most like to see on display.
“I’m not producing stories by general public vote,” he produced very clear, “but I uncovered it fascinating nonetheless.”
