Gotham PD – We now know that the show will serve as a prequel to Matt Reeves’ movie. The movie is “year two” and the series is “year one.”

Titans – Season 3 will bring us the series’ take on the Red Hood, as confirmed by a DC Fandome panel.

Penny Dreadful – City of Angels cancelled after just one season.

The Stand – CBS has announced the premiere date of the limited series on All Access; Dec 17th. The cast includes Whoopi Goldberg, James Marsden Alexander Skarsgård, Odessa Young, Greg Kinnear, Heather Graham, Amber Heard, Jovan Adepo and Marilyn Manson (though there are many, many more coming over its expansive narrative), and is written by The Fault in our Stars and The New Mutants director Josh Boone and Ben Cavell (who’s the showrunner). And now we know that Stephen King will be writing the final episode, changing the ending somehow. https://deadline.com/2020/08/the-stand-cbs-all-access-premiere-date-stephen-king-whoopi-goldberg-1203022343/

Powerpuff Girls

Live action show on the CW from Greg Berlanti. This sounds like a continuation of the original animated series, as we will find the girls as 20 somethings who have grown a little disillusioned.

Black Adam

The Rock confirmed on his Twitter that Hawkgirl WON’T be in the movie. For reasons he will elaborate on when the NDA runs out. Instead we will get Cyclone. Which actually makes a little sense, since Hawkgirl is only a sometimes member of the JSA in the comics

DC Animated

With Superman: Man of Tomorrow and Batman: Soul of the Dragon being the announced animated animated movies, Fandome saw the announcement of Justice Society: World War II and Batman: The Long Halloween. No date for the JSA movie (aside from “early next year”), but Long Halloween will be the second animated release of 2021, to be released in 2 parts.
