Abrams‘ Bad Robot will be producing the upcoming movie. “To be invited into the DC Extended Universe by Warner Bros., DC Films and Bad Robot is an honor,” expressed Coates in a recent statement announcing the project. “I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America’s most iconic mythic hero.” The movie is still in its early development, and a director has yet to be named.
