WB Cancels James Wan’s The Trench and Ava DuVernay’s New Gods

With some fans still demanding a continuation of the SnyderVerse and Warner Brothers attempting to put the focus back on their upcoming DCEU movies like The Suicide Squad, The Flash and Black Adam, the studio has quietly cancelled a couple of the more idiosyncratic DC films that they also had in development. James Wan had been working on an Aquaman spin-off called The Trench, a horror-oriented project focusing on the amphibious monsters that live in the Mariana Trench, while Ava DuVernay was hired to direct New Gods, based on Jack Kirby’s cosmic space opera. Now both projects appear to have been shelved indefinitely. Warner Brothers released the following statement last week:

“As part of our DC slate, some legacy development titles including New Gods and The Trench will not be moving forward. We thank our partners Ava DuVernay, Tom King, James Wan and Peter Safran for their time and collaboration during this process and look forward to our continued partnership with them on other DC stories. The projects will remain in their skillful hands if they were to move forward in the future.”

THR reports that the decision was made when it became clear that neither movie had a natural spot on the upcoming DC schedule over the next few years. However, it is also believed that New Gods was complicated by the fact that it would have involved Darkseid and execs were looking to put space between the Snyder Cut and any future appearances of the character. Both projects could potentially be revived somewhere down the road but for now WB is shifting their attention to other DC properties including Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Supergirl, Green Lantern Corps, Static Shock and Zatanna as well as a third Wonder Woman movie and a new Superman project. Are you disappointed that we won’t get to see James Wan’s The Trench or Ava DuVernay’s New Gods anytime soon?

    Well I want a Zack Snyder New Gods, so I’m just going to have to put faith in the online mob to make this happen. New Gods could be kind of cool, they can’t be ‘ruined’ like Superman/Batman that everybody has an opinion about, so there would be more space to explore the themes that Snyder enjoys (booms, muscles and lack of hope/direction :P). Also, what aboutism The Boys! Totally stole his thunder.

    I’m disappointed in the New Gods cancellation with Ava DuVernay. Think that would have been are real cool project to see.

    The James Wan “Trench” movie not so much since I’m not a fan of James Wan…I think he’s just a terrible director.

    Overall I have no idea wha the WB is doing with their DC franchise. They seem all over the place with cohesion in the DCU.

    A great product that WB has no interest in properly handling with only one motive…a quick easy buck.
