In recent news, James Gunn, director, and screenwriter of Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad, along with his producer Peter Safran were named as co-chairmen for DC studios. According to Collider, Gunn and Safran have plans to create a more coherent universe for DC, which will apply to future productions. As indicated, movies that have already begun production will most likely be excluded from the new DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
This mainly affects the highly anticipated Joker sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux — as it was slated months ago to release in October 2024. The movie will most likely remain separate from Gunn’s DCEU in the future. Speculations have also been made concerning the possible exclusion of other spin-offs that also set scenes in Arkham Asylum.
Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming Joker: Folie à Deux movie.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Dwayne Johnson revealed he “fought for years” to bring Henry Cavill back as Superman.
