2017 is going to be a big or for DC. Both Wonder Woman and Justice League are hitting the big screen this year, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. DC Comics president Geoff Johns took to Twitter on New Year's Eve, where he took the opportunity to tease yet another DC TV superhero series and a return to the world of comic books.
“Happy 2017, everyone!! Can’t wait for the New Year,” Johns wrote in a series of tweets listing the “top five DC events” he’s most looking forward to. “More #DCTV,” he teased. “[The Flash, Arrow, Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow, Lucifer, Supergirl] and many more! One which will be announced soon.”
5) More #DCTV @CW_TheFlash @CW_Arrow @Gotham @TheCW_Legends @LuciferonFOX @TheCWSupergirl and many more! One which will be announced soon...— Geoff Johns (@geoffjohns) January 1, 2017
Currently, it is unclear if the new show will be part of the Arrowverse, or another DC Comics property altogether. This past summer, it was announced that a new Black Lightning series was coming to Fox from Greg Berlanti, the mastermind behind the DC superhero shows airing on The CW.
But, that's not the only thing fans have to look forward to in the new year.
Shortly after midnight on January 1st, Johns also revealed that he's "Writing Comics Again."
Shortly after the launch of Rebirth, Johns would take a break from comics as his responsibilities within the DC Extended Universe of movies increased.
And 1) Writing comics again... stay tuned! Happy New Year!!! pic.twitter.com/zUvs4NIXhM— Geoff Johns (@geoffjohns) January 1, 2017
Johns posted an image of Dr. Manhattan in teasing his new comic. The final pages of Rebirth #1 teased a connection to Watchmen, and some readers are speculating that a follow-up series could be on the way. Stay tuned!
