One month ago, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles teased that he’s developing a secret DC project, although he refused to share any details about it. Due to his secrecy, we have no idea what this project will be about, we don’t even know if it’s going to be a movie or TV show.
“There is a DC property that I’m currently developing right now with Warner Bros. and some other good partners.” — Jensen Ackles
The only thing we know so far is that Jensen Ackles is involved (still don’t know in what way) and that it’s about something from DC (which doesn’t really narrow it down much). Now, the newest detail that surfaced is that producer Greg Berlanti is also involved, which actually isn’t a surprise considering it’s a DC project.
“Jensen is also developing an Untitled DC Project with Greg Berlanti.” — 2022 SXSW convention
Greg Berlanti is a pretty known face for DC fans. He is the founder and CEO of Berlanti Productions, which produced so many DC projects since it was founded in 2000. Berlanti is best known for developing a TV shared universe known as Arrowverse. He served as the writer and a producer on Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Superman & Lois. He also worked on DC shows Titans, and he’s developing the upcoming HBOMax series Green Lantern. He was also an executive producer on Batwoman, Black Lightning, Stargirl, etc.
If one thing is for sure, Berlanti has a lot of experience with working on DC projects. One of the upcoming DC projects in development is Gotham Knights for The CW, and although we can’t be sure, could there be a chance that that upcoming project and Ackles’ are one of the same things? We don’t know, but we’re excited nonetheless.
Jensen Ackles is best known for the role of Dean Winchester from Supernatural, the role he played for 15 seasons. He voiced Red Hood in the animated movie Batman: Under the Red Hood, and he voiced Batman in the animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween. Ackles will also appear in the upcoming third season of The Boys, in which he’ll play Soldier Boy, a parodied version of Captain America.
