When DC Studios co-owners James Gunn and Peter Safran DC announced its initial slate of comic book movies. In late January (throwing some unfair shade in the direction of the arrow), he made it clear that existing plans e.g. Joker: Madness for Two And the continuation of Matt Reeves Batman universe will still be happening, but that they’ll be “clearly” labeled as “Elseworlds” projects to separate them from the rest of the interconnected MCU-style stuff they’re making. Of particular note in Gunn and Safran’s announcement, though, it was notable that another previously confirmed project—Keanu Reeves Constantine The sequel– was completely absent.
But apparently this was just an oversight, or a conscious mistake due to the character’s weak connection to the superhero world, because Entertainment Weekly Confirmation received From Warner Bros Constantine 2 still ongoing.
