There are some notable exceptions, including Zack Snyder’s version of “Justice League,” which was released on Max in 2021 and remains on the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned streaming service. Also staying on Max is James Wan’s “Aquaman,” which will be getting a sequel in December.
That sequel, titled “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” will be the final installment of the DC Extended Universe, which began with “Man of Steel” in 2013. After that, DC will take a yearlong break before getting a reboot with “Superman: Legacy” in summer 2025.
Directed by James Gunn, who is also the co-CEO of DC Studios and the creative head of the rebooted universe, “Superman: Legacy” will star David Corenswet as Clark Kent early in his career as Superman and as a reporter at the Daily Planet, with Rachel Brosnahan playing Lois Lane.
Other projects in development by DC Studios include “Swamp Thing” directed by James Mangold” and “The Brave and the Bold,” a film focused on Batman’s family of allies directed by Andy Muschietti.
