DC wants to imitate Marvel for its MCU and especially wants its own Kevin Feige. In this context, Warner has appointed James Gunn and Peter Safran at its head to upset the DCU and therefore the entire DC Universe adaptation at the same time. In addition to cinema, this therefore includes video games.
The DC Universe finally coherent in video games?
Once again the information comes directly from an interaction with the principal concerned: james gunn himself, all on Twitter:
Yes, most definitely, the DCU will be connected through film and TV (and animation)
Are there any plans for the games to also connect to the DCU, Mr. Gunn?
A clear and limpid answer which confirms that the DC Universe games should have a screenplay coherence between them (which is not at all the case at Marvel, where it is currently a real neuneu party). We know that Warner wants to start a new era in video games as well as in cinema. Kill the Justice League should therefore be the last episode taking place in the Arkham saga, before seeing titles having a link with both films and video games. The latter is expected for 2023 and it should allow you to embody Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang and King Shark in an open-world Metropolis.
What would you like to see next for the DC Universe in video games? A new game Batman out of Arkham ? A Superman game? A Justice League game?
