recently signed a massive $500m exclusive deal with WarnerMedia
to write, produce and direct content for the media company across multiple platforms including film, television, streaming and video games under the Bad Robot banner. There are clearly huge plans for Abrams once he finishes working on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
, and given his experience and success in handling established franchises like Star Wars and Mission: Impossible
, the DC Extended Universe could be next on his hit list.
The filmmaker has previous experience with DC
-related movies, having written the script for Superman: Flyby, which came close to getting the official greenlight back in 2002 when he was still best-known for his small screen work on Felicity
. However, it also looks like Abrams might not be tackling the Dceu alone, with James Gunn
also rumored to help shape the direction of the franchise going forward.
