They’ve been hired by Warner Bros. to oversee the storylines across movies, TV shows, and even video games. Gunn also wrote the script for the upcoming film, just like he did for the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Warner Bros. is also working on other movies for the franchise, like Swamp Thing, The Brave and the Bold, and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, hoping to make the DC brand successful again. Meanwhile, the new Superman will be released on July 11, 2025.
