James Gunn And Peter Safran Confirm New Video Games Will Be Part Of The DCU
Peter Safran and James Gunn, the new leads of DC's film, TV, and animation departments, are aiming to make the DCEU a larger presence in mass media. As part of their announcement plans for the future of the DCEU, the duo officially revealed that the DCEU will also extend its reach to video games with a cohesive, connected story across different mediums.
Safran said DCEU games will fill in the gaps between movies and television shows. He shared, “It's not like we're going to have Superman come out and then a Superman game come out. It's more like we have the Superman [movie] come out, and two years later we have Supergirl coming out, so what's the story in between there? Is there a Krypto game we could play?”
Gunn previously discussed his plans to integrate video games into the DCEU, which elicited mixed reactions from fans. Some were excited to see how Gunn would weave games into the overall narrative of the DCEU, while others thought the video games should remain unrelated to other media. Time will tell how Safran and Gunn incorporate gaming into their overall plan.
