James Gunn Announces When New DCU Movies Start Filming

| December 4, 2022 — James Gunn has been good about responding to fans on Twitter and other social media since taking the helm as co-CEO of DC Films. After he posted a new poster for Blue Beetle, a conversation ensued questioning when new films would begin. His answer is once all the current films are released, ending with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in late 2023. New films under his direct supervision will begin in 2024. His specific answer was, “Peter and I will help to guide the already filmed projects for the next year, but the new slate won’t start until after Aquaman 2.” One obvious question he declined to answer was what films were on the list. That makes sense as it gives him a good deal of time to weave the current films into the fabric of the new DCU he has planned.
