James Gunn Gives Update on The Authority: ‘Always Gonna Be Quality First’

James Gunn has given a brief update regarding the upcoming The Authority film.

On Threads, Gunn was asked when the forthcoming DCU movie would announce the rest of the cast of The Authority. So far, it has only been announced that María Gabriela de Faría will play Angela Spica/The Engineer in Gunn’s Superman film, which releases in 2025.

“We won’t green light a film until we have a finished script we’re happy with and, in general, we won’t cast a film until the script is finished,” Gunn answered. “This is why some projects are moving faster than anticipated and others more slowly. It’s always gonna be quality first no matter what.”

What do we know about The Authority?

Gunn and Peter Safran revealed that an Authority movie was in the works when they announced the DCU’s first slate of projects, “Chapter 1 – Gods and Monsters”, in January 2023.

“The Authority is a passion project of mine,” Gunn said at the time. “It’s based on the marvelous WildStorm characters we are now bringing into the DCU. [They] will interact with all of our primary DCU characters. The Authority are a group of superheroes who think the world is broken and they want to fix it by any means necessary. I think it’s a very different look at superheroes.”

A release date for The Authority has not yet been set, and the creative team working on the project has not yet been announced.

The DCU kicks off in 2024 with an animated Creature Commandos series. Following that, DC fans will get their first look at The Engineer in Superman, which releases on July 11, 2025. 

Other forthcoming DCU movies include The Brave and the Bold, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, Swamp Thing, and Teen Titans. A number of other television shows — including Peacemaker Season 2, Waller, Lanterns, Paradise Lost, Booster Gold, and an Arkham series — are also in various stages of development.
