Yesterday, DC dropped several teases for their upcoming projects across multiple platforms that all seem to have a function in their expanding DCEU. Here you’ll find a few behind the scenes videos and trailers/teasers to show you what to expect from the next couple of years of DC entertainment on the big and small screens:
While not my personal favorite part of James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad,” I still trust James Gunn as a creative voice behind this show, which seems to broaden the tone of stories that may fit into the DCEU and embrace some comic-book spectacle and silliness:
Created and written by James Gunn, with at least one episode directed by filmmaker Brad Anderson, HBO will debut “Peacemaker” streaming on HBO Max January 13th, 2022.
Despite a lack of final footage to show, DC is pushing hard to sell “Black Adam” on the strength of its’ lead actor, concept art, and spectacle hinted in behind-the scenes footage:
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, written by Adam Sztykiel, produced by Beau Flynn and Hiram Garcia, and executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, filming will begin this fall and Warner Bros currently plans to release this in theaters exclusively on July 29th, 2022.
Shazam: Fury of the Gods:
Zachary Levi returns in another puch from DC to demonstrate how behind-the scenes promises a worthwhile spectacle. This features first looks at Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu as villains!
Directed by David F. Sandberg, “Shazam: Fury of the Gods” is scheduled to open in theaters on June 2, 2023. In addition to Levi, who reprises the title role, the DCEU sequel also stars Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirren, and Lucy Liu. returns to direct.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
Oddly, personally this seemed to be the most exciting project covered based on the footage provided. It feels different tonally from anything else whiteout claiming to be “bigger” and “better,” and features something rare in recent franchises with returning villains, suggesting the story will further the stakes of the first film rather than function as an “episode”:
Directed by James Wan, “Aquaman” is scheduled to be released by Warner Brothers on December 16, 2022.
