HBO Max’s ‘Constantine’ series is said to be on “solid ground and moving along.” Constantine is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Warner Bros. Discovery is now more considering on future projects after its most recent strategy. J.J. Abrams recently give an update on the Constantine series.
Deadline reported that Constantine is one of the projects for HBO Max that is “on solid ground and moving along”. There weren’t any additional details provided, either about what “moving along” entails or the series itself, but it feels like a bit of good news in the wake of what has been a roller-coast of things. The report also mentions Madame X as still being in development.
On Aug 6, During the Warner Bros. Discovery second quarter earnings call, CEO David Zaslav revealed that the company has a 10-year plan for the DC Universe.
Zaslav told in a statement “Our ambition is to bring Warners back and to produce great high-quality films, and as we look at the opportunities that we have broadly, DC is one of the top of the list for us,” he added. “You look at Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman — these are brands that are known everywhere in the world. The ability to drive those all over the world with great story is a big opportunity for us. We have done a reset. We’ve restructured the business. We’re going to focus.”
Zaslav also mentioned their competitor Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige “There will be a team with a 10-year plan focusing just on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together, very effectively, with Kevin Feige at Disney,” he added. “We think that we could build a long-term much stronger, sustainable growth business out of DC. And as part of that, we’re going to focus on quality. We’re not going to release any film before it’s ready. We’re not going to release a film to make a quarter. We’re not going to release a film unless the focus is going to be, ‘How do we make each of these films in general as good as possible?’ But DC is something that we think we could make better, and we’re focused on it now. We have some great DC films coming up — Black Adam, Shazam, and Flash – and we’re working on all of those. We’re very excited about them.”
