THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – “Warner Bros. and DC Films’ upcoming slate is moving forward without Ava DuVernay’s New Gods and James Wan’s Aquaman spinoff, The Trench.”
This is why I have such a love-hate relationship with the DC Universe. I love me some Superman, and all the other magnificent DC Heroes of my youth. But I hate that they don’t seem to have a clue about what to do with them. They announce a film slate, and then don’t move forward with it.
Here’s a thought WB; Get a banging script written first, before you announce plans based on a whole lot of nothing.
Here’s the official word from Warner Bros. and DC…
“As part of our DC slate, some legacy development titles including New Gods and The Trench will not be moving forward,” Warner Bros. and DC said in a statement. “We thank our partners Ava DuVernay, Tom King, James Wan and Peter Safran for their time and collaboration during this process and look forward to our continued partnership with them on other DC stories. The projects will remain in their skillful hands if they were to move forward in the future.”
