James Gunn Has Released His DCU Lineup Today

Published

on

James Gunn’s DCU lineup has been revealed. Gunn says his new direction for the DCU will be an eight to ten year process of films and animation, that will all tie in together. Even using the same voice actors for animation in the live-action versions of the characters.

“One of our strategies is that we take our diamond characters — Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman– and we use that to help prop up other characters that people don’t know. Like what happened with the Guardians (of the Galaxy) in some way. Like taking teams like The Authority, which is I know is just as spectacular idea for a film that is completely different take on superheroes. Because it’s really connected to Superman. It’s about to use those well-known properties to help lead into lesser known properties.”

“We’re going to promise that everything from our first project forward is going to be unified. But we’ve gotten very lucky for the next four projects. I will say here that Flash is probably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made.”

Creature Commandos — will be an animated tv series: “Animation will lead into live action and back into animation. It’s a way to tell stories that are gigantic and huge without spending $50M an episode.” Says Gunn.

Superman Legacy — Will be the official start of James Gunn’s DCU.  “It’s not an origins story, it focuses on Superman’s balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. He’s the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, he’s kindness in a world that thinks of kindness as old fashioned.” July 11, 2025.

Lanterns — HBO Max live action series. “Our vision for this is True Detective. It’s terrestrial-based, it’s got two of our favorite Green Lanterns –Hal Jordan and John Stewart…it plays a really big role in the main story that we’re telling across our film and Television. This is a very important show for us.”

The Authority —  “There’s great wildstorm characters that were popular for a long-time and we’re incorporating them into the DCU,”

Paradise Lost — HBO Max live action series. “It’s going to be a Games of Thrones-ish story about Themyscira, the home of the Amazons and the birthplace of Wonder Woman. This drama is really about the political intrigue behind the society of all women. How did that come about? What’s the beautiful truths and the ugly truths behind all of that and what’s the scheming like between all the power players in that society?” The series will take place before the birth of Diana

The Brave and the Bold — This story will be Gunn’s Batman outside of Matt Reeves story. “who is a little son of a bitch assassin, murderer who Batman takes on, who is Batman’s actual son that he doesn’t know exists for the first 8-10 years of his life….it’s a strange father and son story about the two of them and based on Grant Morrison’s run of the Batman.”

Booster Gold — HBO Max TV series is about a loser from the future, who uses future technology to come back to today, and pretend to be a superhero. “Imposter syndrome as a superhero,”

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow  “In our series we see the difference between Superman who was sent to Earth and raised by loving parents from the time he was an infant, versus Supergirl who was raised on a rock, a chip off Krypton, and watched everyone around her die and be killed in terrible ways for the first 14 years of her life, and then came to Earth when she was a young girl. She’s much more hardcore, she’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re use to seeing.”

 Swamp Thing: — Will be a dark horror take on the character, that will tie in to the rest of the DCU

Ezekiel Sims: Character Profile

Published

on

Ezekiel Sims (Marvel)

Founder of the Spider Society. A successful, but sinister business man. A Spider-Mentor. Here follows a brief background of Ezekiel Sims.

Hidden Motives

Ezekiel used his financial capital and influence to save a temple in Peru from being demolished all because of the chance to be a subject of the ritual that would grant him spider-like abilities. However, as a power-hungry man, he never feels satisfied for the quest for power. He obtains superhuman strength, speed, reflexes and superb resilience. He can stick to wall and also possess spider-senses. He however, does not rely on web-shooters or any other artificial gadgets and tools. He studies all the various ceremonies of the Spider-Clan.

Friends and Foes

Ezekiel finds himself helping out the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man many times but usually with his own agenda in mind. He even trains a new protégé and is forced to protect her from a vampire. Lets see who can guess who the vampire is, and no, I’m not referring to Morbius. Ezekiel finds himself the target of some sinister characters beyond the astral plane and he sacrifices himself to save the life of Peter Parker.

Sinister beginnings but with a noble ending, that is Ezekiel Sims. However, Tahar Rahim plays the primary antagonist in the Madame Web movie that has released last week. What is his motives or objectives this time?
