HBO Max Reportedly Wants 10 DCEU Projects Per Year

The comparisons between Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DCEU are reductive, but the rise of streaming has only seen the tribalism intensify. Kevin Feige's outfit made a hugely successful move into small screen storytelling earlier this year, with five shows rolling out before the end of the year.

Warner Bros. and DC Films aren’t getting into the game until The Suicide Squad spinoff Peacemaker premieres in January, but most high profile titles in development for the platform are comic book adaptations, which is expected when the back catalogue of crimefighters and supervillains provide one of WarnerMedia’s most viable and lucrative assets.

We’re now hearing from sources — the same ones who told us Ben Affleck was returning as Batman in The Flash long before it was confirmed — that HBO Max wants 10 DCEU projects to hit streaming annually.

On the way are movies for Batgirl, Black Canary, and Blue Beetle, live-action shows for Peacemaker, Green Lantern, the Gotham City Police Department, Justice League Dark, Constantine, and Madame X, along with Michael B. Jordan’s mysterious Val-Zod series.

On the animated front, there are more seasons of Harley Quinn and Young Justice coming, Aquaman: King of Atlantis, and Batman: Caped Crusader and My Adventures with Superman. Furthermore, as HBO Max continues to expand, we can only expect the volume of DC original programming to increase in kind.
