Which “DC Universe” are we talking about, here? The one James Gunn and Peter Safran are developing that David Zaslav is staking the future of Warner Bros on? Or the one that’s already been canceled and appears to be ground zero in an ongoing online war between Black Adam and Captain Marvel Shazam fans?
