Interconnectivity is all the rage when it comes to building your shared universe throughout films and TV series. The DC Extended Universe has been attempting to build one for quite a few years now but has yet to reach the status that other franchises have. Yet, recent rumors hint at a much more cohesive future in store for Warner Bros.’ attempt. Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard rumblings of certain characters popping up in other projects that are set to release within the next few months, and James Gunn has confirmed that to be the case.
In an interview with Collider, while promoting Peacemaker, Gunn was asked how the series connects to the greater DCEU and not only highlights the connectivity between this series and upcoming projects but also highlighted that one character, in particular, is already eyeing a future return.
It [Peacemaker] is part of the DCU, I mean they can use these characters… I mean one of these characters, which people have kind of figured out, one of these characters is used in a future big DC movie thats from here. So we are connected to all of this. Who knows what role these characters are going to play in the future? I mean no one know who the Guardians of The Galaxy were, and then all of a sudden they’re massive players in Infinity War [Avengers] and Endgame [Avengers]. So, who knows whats going to happen with Peacemaker in ten years, five years, or whatever.James Gunn
Just a few weeks ago we reported on a rumor that Emilia Harcourt would be making her DCEU return much sooner than expected. If rumors are true, she is set to return in Black Adam, which will release on July 29th. Details on her role describe it as a small role towards the end of the film in which she arrives to recruit a certain someone, although this target is unknown.
