We recently learned that 2024 will see the release of Crisis on Infinite Earths and Watchmen from Warner Bros. Discovery Animation. The former was branded as a "DC Universe" feature, and those unfamiliar with the direct-to-DVD titles and "Tomorrowverse" assumed that meant it was somehow tied to DC Studios' DCU.
There's no denying a proper Multiverse movie setting the stage for the upcoming reboot would be a fun way to kick things off after The Flash failed to impress. However, Gunn has now confirmed what most of us already realised by confirming these movies are in no way connected to the new DCU.
It's unclear whether the popular "Tomorrowverse" movies will continue once DC Studios is fully up and running, something which has concerned many fans (and the voice actors who make a living from projects like these).
There is, however, always a possibility they'll continue under whatever "Elseworlds" branding James Gunn and Peter Safran have planned for stories not set in the rebooted continuity (The Batman II and The Penguin, for example) but Gunn has shed new light on his own animation plans.
That's going to include releasing animated movies theatrically, an intriguing prospect that will definitely differentiate DC Studios from Marvel Studios in at least one key way.
Previously, Gunn has said the same actors will play the DCU characters across all forms of media, including live-action, animation, and video games.
