During a special presentation, DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran announced the first chapter of the DCU reboot as “DCU Chapter One: Gods and Monsters.” The slate has 11 projects, which include the Superman reboot, a Batman and Damian Wayne team-up film, and many more. Superman: Legacy is set to focus on the titular hero trying to balance his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is set to take inspiration from Tom King’s mini-series and will explore “a very different type of Supergirl” and “much more hardcore.” The Brave and the Bold will introduce the Bat family, with Gunn confirming that the version of Robin that will team up with the DCU’s Batman is Damian Wayne, Bruce’s biological son. Paradise Lost is set to explore the Amazons of Themyscira before the birth of Diana (Wonder Woman), with Safran teasing that it has this “Game of Thrones-ish story.” The slate includes the other projects such as Booster Gold, Creature Commandos, Waller, Lanterns, Swamp Thing, The Authority, and Elseworlds: The Batman – Part II.
