We are facing numerous DC projects
In addition to “The Batman”, there are of course some DC movies coming up, such as the much anticipated “Black Adam” film with Dwayne Johnson, “The Flash”, “Aquaman 2” and “Shazam 2”. At this year’s DC FanDome, some trailers and news about the upcoming films will be released, which is why DC fans should not miss the event. The event will take place on October 16, 2021.
However, something is also happening in the series sector. John Cena’s character Peacemaker from “The Suicide Squad” is also given its own series, which is simply called “Peacemaker”. Furthermore, a “Green Lantern” series is being worked on and “Creed” star Michael B. Jordan is developing his own Superman mini-series.
So DC fans can look forward to a lot of content. However, whether they can convince everyone equally is certainly the much more important question.
