CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS Movie Was In Development Prior To DCU Reset

Fans are still coming to terms with the major DCU reset news that hit earlier this week, and a new report has now confirmed that the old guard was indeed working towards a Crisis on Infinite Earths movie.

It's been a tumultuous couple of days for DC fans, with the news that James Gunn and Peter Safran are planning a major overhaul (possibly even a full reboot) of what was previously known as the DCEU leading to a lot of uncertainty about what to expect from DC Studios going forward.

Gunn has confirmed that at least some of the original report is accurate, although it sounds like there might be a slim chance that the likes of Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa and co. remain on in their respective roles.

Even if they do, it's highly unlikely that any of the projects they were previously attached to will see the light of day - including a Crisis on Infinite Earths movie!

We had heard rumblings that a massive event film based on Marv Wolfman's 1985 crossover comic series might be in development, and THR has now confirmed that "cameos in forthcoming DC movies would have breadcrumbed to a giant tentpole movie inspired by the now-classic Crisis on Infinite Earth comics of the 1980s."

Apparently, Walter Hamada actually wanted this film to mark the long-awaited return of Henry Cavill as Superman, but Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson "had his own plans and muscled his own Cavill return."

Is a COIE adaptation now off the table? Probably, although the trade seems to feel that "Gunn and Safran can and will resuscitate some of these heroes," so there's always a chance certain ideas and concepts will be revisited down the line.

The DC Studios co-heads are set to present their DC plan to Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav next week, so let's hope an official announcement is imminent. In the meantime, let us know what you make of this news in the comments section.
