In a recent interview with World of DC films president Walter Hamada in the New York Times, it was hinted that HBO Max could soon become the exclusive home for films of some of DC’s “riskier” characters.
Hamada told the NYT that DC’s most expensive films are designed for release in theatres, with the schedule looking to be up to four a year.
It was then stated that additional superhero films will arrive exclusively on HBO Max and these will perhaps focus on ‘riskier characters such as Batgirl and Static Shock’, with two releases annually being the goal.
DC Films will also be working with filmmakers to develop TV series that will run on HBO Max and interconnect with their big-screen endeavours (think the MCU on Disney Plus).
Hamada added: “With every movie that we’re looking at now, we are thinking, ‘What’s the potential Max spinoff?'”
The last big news on the project was that Bumblebee‘s Christina Hodson had signed on to write the new script, which would focus on Commissioner Gordon’s daughter Barbara as Batgirl.
Meanwhile, as for the Static Shock movie, in October it was announced that Black Panther‘s Michael B Jordan had signed on as a producer.
