The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes slowed down DC Studios' momentum, but Creature Commandos is deep in production and cameras are still expected to begin rolling on Superman: Legacy early next year.
However, those of you excited for The Brave and the Bold will need to exercise patience. Matt Reeves' The Batman II is still on track to be released in 2025, but the DCU's Caped Crusader will be making his debut - alongside Robin - a little further down the line based on a new update from DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn.
Responding to a fan on Instagram asking about a possible Bruce Wayne casting announcement, the filmmaker said, "No. We don't even have a script yet."
It's still very early days for the movie and it wouldn't be surprising if the movie doesn't swoop into theaters until 2027 at this rate. Director Andy Muschietti, whom Gunn hired after being impressed by his work on The Flash, is thought to be focusing on It TV series Welcome to Derry, so patience will indeed be key.
This also means any casting rumours you see regarding the Dark Knight are almost certainly inaccurate.

Who Could Play Batman In The DCU
Talking back in January about DC Studios' plans for The Brave and the Bold, Gunn said: "This is the introduction of the DCU's Batman. This is the story of Damian Wayne, who is Batman's actual son who we didn't know existed for the first eight to 10 years of his life. He was raised as a little murderer and assassin. He's a little son of a bitch. He's my favorite Robin."
"It's based on the Grant Morrison comic book's run, which is one of my favorite Batman runs, and we are putting that all together right now."
DC Studios co-CEO Peter Safran added, "And this is obviously a feature film, and it's going to feature other members of the extended 'Bat-family', just because we feel like they've been left out of the Batman stories in the theater for far too long."
In other DCU news, Cocaine Bear and Obi-Wan Kenobi star O'Shea Jackson Jr. has confirmed he also unsuccessfully auditioned for a role in Superman: Legacy. He didn't reveal which character he tried out for but confirmed it wasn't Superman.
