James Gunn Reveals The Flash & Aquaman’s Future In The DC Universe

James Gunn, the co-lead of the new DC Studios, has recently confirmed that Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman franchise will not exactly be a part of the new DC Universe (DCU).

DC Studios has served notice it’s ready to compete with rival Marvel in building an integrated superhero universe. James Web and Peter Safran (one of the producers of Aquaman 2), the newly appointed co-CEOs of DC Studios,  revealed their overall plan for the franchise in “films, television, gaming, and animation.” They announced several new projects as part of their 10-year roadmap of the new DC Universe while also talking about The Flash, Shazam, The Blue Beetle, and Aquaman 2. The Flash and Aquaman will run as their own franchises, completely separate from the universe DC Studios has planned to establish.

One of the biggest news is easily a new Superman movie, titled Superman: Legacy with a release date of July 25, 2025. But a new Superman isn’t the only thing that’s defining the new DCU.

Apart from this, James Gunn also announced DC Elseworlds, a universe that “will run outside of the mainstream DCU continuity.” Matt Reeves’ Batman trilogy, Todd Phillips’ Joker: Folie à Deux, and the Teen Titans Go TV show will exist under the Elseworlds umbrella.


The ten works are:


  • Superman: Legacy
  • The Authority
  • The Brave and the Bold
  • Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow
  • Swamp Thing

Television Shows:

  • Creature Commandos
  • Waller
  • Lanterns
  • Paradise Lost
  • Booster Gold
