With production starting this summer in Australia on Warner Bros.' Aquaman, the supporting cast is now starting to come together. A recent video even revealed that Jason Momoa has begun his stunt training for this superhero adventure. The story is still being kept under wraps, though, with very little revealed about this stand alone film. Over the weekend, director James Wan answered a few fan questions through social media, confirming that the DC Comics character Aqualad will not be a part of this movie.
Last night, one fan asked director James Wan on Twitter if he's looking for an actor to play Aqualad. The director's response was swift and merciless, saying that he is, "Absolutely not at all" looking to cast someone as Aqualad. This confirmation upset some fans, with one even going so far as to claim that the exclusion of Aqualad "crushed" his dreams. The director responded »
Those who aren’t familiar with anything but the cute Teen Titans series are in for quite a surprise as the heroes return to their darker roots in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which is one of the most incredible efforts from the comics. The feature-length film is inspired by a story arc from the 1984 DC comic, and has an incredible voice cast backing the supremely gritty arc.
In The Judas Contract, the Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and Nightwing – are led by Starfire, but their newest teammate, Terra, is throwing the groups dynamic out of whack, and the team comes up against Brother Blood, an ancient evil, and Deathstroke is waiting in the wings to cause problems as well.

If you do not know what NBC's Powerless is, don't think that you are in for another action packed DC series. It is far from that, the show premiers in February, and it will be a comedy based on Vanessa Hudgen's character who gets her dream job at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and her boss Alan Tudyk that plays the cousin of Bruce Wayne himself, Van Wayne.
Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero. »

After a lengthy break, Young Justice season 3 will be returning for more episodes as confirmed by DC Entertainment. Though we don't yet know where the new episodes will air, previous statements from the show's producers and voice actors would imply that Netflix is likely the show's new home. And with the shift from Cartoon Network to Netflix, it seems the show will finally be able to openly depict Lgbtq characters as a series of tweets from co-creator Greg Weisman seem to imply. However, while initial thoughts would lead most to believe that a new addition to the show would be Lgbtq, Wiseman has previously said that someone already on the show was gay or bisexual but that they couldn't openly depict it due to Cartoon Network guidelines. If it is an existing character, who do you think it is? There have been numerous fan theories and debates but Weisman and »

This got me thinking of what shows and properties could Geoff Johns and DC possibly be working on right now. With the current properties on television and films that DC has tied up there leaves only a select few that could be used that would attract viewers. The property that comes to mind that fans have wanted for a while is a live version of Teen Titans. »
