Whereas I like James Gunn’s superhero motion pictures throughout each DC and Marvel, I’m frequently confused about how his over-arching DCU plan goes to pan out.

This previous week, Gunn revealed that he had supplied Matt Reeves the chance to have Reeves’ “Batverse” be a part of the DCU. As in, Robert Pattinson’s Bruce from The Batman could be the DCU’s Batman. Reeves stated no, and Gunn “revered” that call. However Reeves was additionally engaged on two different Batverse reveals, a Penguin sequence and a sequence set in Arkham.

Now, because of James Gunn answering fan questions endlessly on Threads, which is sweet however creates a information story virtually day by day, he says that Reeves is definitely creating the Arkham present for the DCU, not The Batverse, which can simply have The Batman, The Batman 2 and the Max Penguin present for now.

This will get much more complicated while you keep in mind the tip of The Batman, which has Paul Dano’s Riddler imprisoned in Arkham, and we additionally get to satisfy Barry Keoghan’s Joker. Keoghan lately “no commented” on him returning to play the Joker in full, however hinted strongly that he would possibly.

However…this Arkham wouldn’t be that Arkham. No Dano Riddler or Keoghan Joker imprisoned there as stars of the present. This may be a brand new slate of Batman villains not related to any we’ve seen in The Batman, provided that it could be developed as a DCU undertaking as an alternative. Meaning a brand new Riddler, Joker, Penguin and Catwoman, all of which we have been launched to in The Batman. Clearly there are numerous extra Batman villains on the market, however these are some fairly massive ones!

Once more, we don’t seem like diving into the DCU Batman world till The Courageous and the Daring, which isn’t prone to arrive till 2026 or 2027, with Gunn’s Superman Legacy arriving in 2025. As for the Arkham present, Penguin is suppose to reach a while in 2024, whereas The Batman 2 might be in late 2025. It looks like Arkham might arrive earlier than Courageous and the Daring at this tempo. Whereas we all know that the DCU’s first Batman story might be about Bruce and his son Damian, one of many Robins, now we have not heard something about who the villain(s) could be for that movie.

It is simply the most recent odd notice from Gunn’s DCU, which already is a bit complicated with DCEU characters and actors like Peacemaker and Amanda Waller carrying over although their outdated initiatives shouldn’t be canon within the DCU itself. That’s together with Blue Beetle being DCU however that not being the primary official DCU film, which might be Legacy. Sure, certain, I completely perceive all of this.
