All 18 DC TV Shows Releasing After The Batman

In addition to a handful of movies, more than a dozen TV shows based on DC Comics are coming after TheBatman. Matt Reeves’ highly anticipated batman movie is proving to be a noteworthy start to 2022 for DC’s movie slate, but that only accounts for some of the content it’s offering in the near future. Through The CW, Cartoon Network, and HBO Max, DC has 17 shows currently in development.

whereas batman kicked off DC’s movie schedule for 2022, peacemaker became their first new show of the year for DC. Acting as a spinoff series to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, peacemaker stood in contrast to previous shows by consistently reminding viewers of its place in the DCEU through references to existing heroes and some unexpected cameos. The eight-episode series’ success on HBO Max secured the show a second season on the streaming service.

The CW will attempt to expand its Arrowverse roster with Gotham Knights, a show from Greg Berlanti which will unite a team of characters from Batman’s corner of the DC Universe. The team will be led by Batman’s “rebellious adopted son“, who will be forced to work with some of his father’s enemies when the Caped Crusader is murdered. Despite being set in the Arrowverse with bat-woman, Gotham Knights is not being described as a spinoff of the latter show. A pilot has been ordered, which is scheduled to film in April 2022. Since that’s the case, Gotham Knights has the potential to air by the end of the year (if The CW picks it up).

My Adventures With Superman will explore the lives of Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen in the early years of their journalism careers at the Daily Planet.

While peacemaker was in the midst of its first season, Gunn mentioned that he was working on another show in the same universe, leading to speculation that it will follow one of the other surviving team members.

Green Lantern


Expected to begin production sometime in the spring is HBO Max’s Green Lantern Show. After years of trying to get a movie off the ground, DC is now focused on making a TV series about not one, but several heroes who have carried the Green Lantern mantle. Alan Scott (the Golden Age version of the hero), Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Guy Gardner will all be featured in the story as Green Lanterns. The live-action show’s first season will be comprised of ten episodes. Jeremy Irvine has been cast as Scott, while Finn Wattrock will play Gardner.

Strange Adventures

Adam Strange DC

HBO Max is developing its first-ever anthology series with Strange Adventures, which shares its title with a comic book series about DC’s space-faring hero, Adam Strange. The show is believed to include him as a central character. The show was announced in October 2019, but since there hasn’t been much news about its progress, it’s not altogether clear if it’s still part of DC’s plans.

Justice League Dark

As their name implies, Justice League Dark is a team of heroes whose stories lean into darker territory than characters like the Flash, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Their roster also consists largely of characters from the mystical side of the DC Universe, such as John Constantine, Deadman, Madame Xanadu, Zatanna, and more. JJ Abrams and Ben Stephenson will executive produce a live-action adaptation of the comic for HBO Max.


Constantine DC Comics Magic

Several years after the chain-smoking supernatural detective led his own show on NBC for one season, DC will create a new version of the character and once again make him the protagonist of a solo series. Since Abrams is involved, it appears HBO Max’s Constantine show will be tied to Justice League Darkpossibly as a spinoff about one of its team members.

One is a big-screen movie, while the other is a TV show centered on Val-Zod, an alternate universe superhero who becomes his world’s Superman. Michael B.
