It’s been an exciting week for fans of superhero movies, especially if you love DC Comics. this week, James Gunn and Peter Safran, who together run DC Studios at Warner Bros. , Revealed they start their plan 8-10 years ago To bring DC heroes like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are returning to their rightful place atop the mountain of comic book culture.
But that plan — 10 projects, five on HBO Max and five in theaters, making up the first part of the first act in a larger, connected world — won’t kick off for a while. The first movie Superman: Legacy, is not scheduled for release until July 2025. That’s a long way to go. So, in the meantime, to help quench some of that thirst and excitement for these properties, Gunn took to Twitter Giving fans an idea of the specific comic shows that inspire the films he and his team are developing for Superman, Batman, Supergirl, and Swamp Thing, as well as the big screen debut of his Wildstorm team, The Authority.
Gunn has not provided links to those but that is why we are here.
First, he is not seen there but he is mentioned Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow by Tom King. You can get that at this link. Then there All-Star Superman: Deluxe Edition which you can get from this link, Batman by Grand Morrison Omnibus Vol. 1 Available at this link, and An absolute swamp thing By Alan Moore, Available there.
And again, it’s important to consider the other part of Gunn’s tweet. While working with these characters, the writers and artists are inspired by the DCU in their “feel,” “look,” and “tone,” don’t expect them to bring accurate stories to theaters. These are just the “axes”.
