After reading a story of Twitter, the co-owner and filmmaker James Gunn seem to confirm that Elseworlds projects will be part of DC Universe’s slate:
That happens in action.

This is from the post where Gunn acknowledged that the future of Dwayne Johnson and Black Adams has discussed, having assumed that the DC Extended Universe looks like it’s finally coming to a close and being replaced by wholesale.
On the other hand, this seems contradictory to the previous statement of Gunns boss David Zaslav, director of the Discovery company Warner Bros. At the Capital Markets Science and Technology Conference in November the head of WBD said : “The capitalist’s network has a high power.
I think you’ll see huge growth and opportunities in the next few years around DC. There won’t be four Batmans.
DC fans are anticipating what James Gunn will tell you some more precise details about the new DC Universe being developed by DC Studios by the Co-CEO Peter Safran. The two CEOs, who started role on November 1 have publicly expressed their feelings about a new direction for television, film and animation.
Elseworlds was originally a subset of films in DC Comics that explored different scenarios, including the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite Kingdom Come.
However, two months later, reports showed that the CD had almost completely rebooted. Gunn wasted his time in a bid to publish a certain of these reports, but that brought up more confusion, especially in the conflicting statuses of DCEU stars like Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Momoa and Zachary Levi, or whether they will be retained or replaced.
Although Gunn confirmed that the new DC Universe will be published in January 2023, fans are eager to know what will happen. On that note, a number of reports are going to be posted on Reddit thread r/DCEUleaks, with users sharing a multitude of theories about the announcements that Gunn and Safran will reveal in 2023.
James Gunn reveals that some DC Studios projects will be announced in January from DCEUleaks.
Many shared their predictions that at least 3-6 movies will be revealed by DC Studios, including Elseworlds.
Elseworlds is a popular sub-category of stories from the DC Comics Movies. It often goes as a way of telling out-of-continuity stories that are flat of characters, explaining them as the result of unexpected realities or timelines. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (with Batman already existed in the Victorian era), Speeding Bullets (with Kal-El being adopted by the Waynes in Gotham) and the famous Kingdom Come (where an older superman returns after a world of comfort fails and corrupt superhumans collapse.
The concept of Elseworlds had already been explored in live action by the Arrowverse crossover named in 2018.
It should be noted that the concept of Elseworlds has been explored previously in live action. The DC CW shows had an improvisable event that was titled Elseworlds in 2018 – similar to the Arrowverse. It was the fifth Arrowverse crossover that had changed timelines. Barry Allen became the green Arrow and Oliver Queen became the Flash. The crossover was the first that included Superman and Lois (played respectively by Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch).
Could Elseworlds be the way DC Studios can forge an entirely new film franchise while still having room for other parts of the story? Is this what do the upcoming projects like Joker 2 and The Batman sequel as well as its spinoff series, the remainder of the DCEU such as The Flash, Blue Beetle and the Aquaman and Shazam sequels to be folded under the Elseworlds umbrella? And if true, this could be the way that, a fan-favorite actor like Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot could still have their own films in the future.
Shazam is the next movie that DC Studios will release in 2023. Fury of the gods will take place march 17-2023.
