Production history[edit]

Background[edit]

On 2020, following the release of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, the last film within the 2013 DC Animated Movie Universe continuity,[1] screenwriter Ernie Altbacker teased the possibility of a new project related to that continuity. He stated: "I think that the way we ended it... it’s really like a tough balancing act: It ends something on a bittersweet yet hopeful note, and I’ll just say, people who are saying, “Oh man, we’re not going to get anymore of these!” ...you’re not losing something, you’re gaining something new..."[2]

Development[edit]

In August 2020, Superman: Man of Tomorrow debuted as the first film in a new shared universe following Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.[3][4]
