DC Studios’ Future Revealed: Plastic Man Movie and Korean Huntress Film in Early Development

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Popular online forum r/DCULeaks made headlines earlier this week when it announced that actor Steven Yeun had dropped out of the upcoming Marvel Studios film Thunderbolts. The news was subsequently confirmed by reputable sources, lending credibility to the Reddit page.

The subreddit primarily focuses on news related to DCU (DC Universe) projects. Recently, it revealed that DC Studios is in early development on a Plastic Man movie. Additionally, it disclosed details about a Korean language Huntress film, which will depict the character Helena Bertinelli as half-Italian and half-Korean in the DCU.

On the other hand, it was also revealed on the page that screenwriter John Logan, known for his work on Skyfall, is no longer attached to pen the screenplay for The Brave and the Bold.

However, DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn swiftly addressed some of these claims on Threads, a social media platform. Gunn responded to a fan’s question about Logan’s involvement in the Batman reboot by simply stating, “No he was not.” Later, Gunn dismissed a detailed leak about a series called Waller, which included casting information, by laughing it off.

Interestingly, Gunn’s response did not address the Plastic Man and Huntress projects specifically, leaving fans to speculate about their veracity. Rumors about these projects have been circulating for months, and Gunn has not addressed them before, although he cannot debunk every rumor that circulates online.

Gunn also responded to online chatter regarding the age of John Stewart, a character in the DCU. He emphasized that all information from unofficial sources is unreliable and stated, “Guys. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times. Everything out there is bullshit unless it comes from me. People don’t even know the writer on the show. How do you think they’d know [the] age [of] the character?”

In other news, Superman: Legacy, a highly anticipated film, has made significant casting announcements. David Corenswet will portray the Man of Steel, and Rachel Brosnahan has been chosen to play Lois Lane. Other recent additions to the cast include Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor. The film is set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

It remains to be seen how these developments will shape the future of DCU projects, but fans eagerly await further news and official updates.
