After the announcement of a new Superman movie he has produced, and given the DC projects to which he is currently linked (primarily HBO Max's Justice League Dark), the great influence that J.J. Abrams will have on the future of the DC Universe. But how far will it go?
According to a recent Hollywood Report article, the answer to this question may be "even beyond Zack Snyder".
We already knew that JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot have signed a multi-year deal with Warner Bros., leading them to team up for several film and television products. However, after the announcements that he saw him among the producers of various DC projects, it was perhaps only a matter of time before he went on to take on what could be called the supervisor role of that universe, however unofficial that title may be at the moment.
As THR also writes, in fact, "Abrams will have great influence on the DC Universe. With Snyder out of the way, the Star Wars director will now have perhaps the biggest footprint [su questo mondo]". This also taking into account the fact that"the launch of the new Superman franchise will play a key role in DC's cinematic future".
"Very little will remain of the vision belonging to the Snyderverse, which greeted us with the four-hour appointment that was Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max."then continue in the piece, explaining that among the stars that will remain we will have Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller, and that the Flash movie starring the latter will act as a "new beginning" thanks to the introduction of the Multiverse.
We will therefore see how these words and will be translated into facts to what extent JJ Abrams will leave his signature on the DC universe.
