Marvel’s Moon Knight Writer Works on DC’s New Universe

May 21, 2023


In a recent interview with Gizmodo, DC Studios’ new co-CEOs, James Gunn and Peter Safran, shared further details on their upcoming collection of DC projects. Among the news is that Jeremy Slater, Marvel’s Moon Knight writer, is part of the team working on the new stories.

Following the announcement of DC’s upcoming film and television lineup, Gunn revealed that he works with a team of writers that includes renowned DC Comics writer Tom King, Christal Henry (one of the writers on Watchmen), Christina Hodson (who participated in writing The Flash), Drew Goddard, and Slater.

Aside from Moon Knight, Slater’s works include films like Fantastic Four and Death Note and television shows like The Exorcist and Netflix’s Emmy-nominated The Umbrella Academy.

Slater won’t be the only writer who has worked with both DC and Marvel. Mark Waid, among many others, is an American comic book writer best known for his work on DC Comics’ The Flash, Kingdom Come, and Superman: Birthright, as well as Marvel’s Captain America, Fantastic Four, and Daredevil.

DCU vs. MCU

In the same interview, Gunn was asked how the DCU is different from the MCU, to which he answered:

“I think that we have a lot of differences. I think that one of the reasons why I love DC is it really is another universe. It’s an alternate world. In Marvel generally, it’s New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and then every place else in the world is a fictional universe for some reason. Here at DCU we have Metropolis and Gotham and Themyscira and Atlantis, and all of that is sort of another fictional universe. And this is the world that we’re creating.”

Gunn added that creating this new project is stepping into a world where the superhero characters exist already. He said that this project is more planned out than Marvel from the beginning, and that is because of the group of writers who are working together to write that story out completely. He continued to compare the new DC universe to Star Wars and said it was similar in having different times, places, and things. He also compared the DCU to Game of Thrones regarding the moral complexity of the characters.

Gunn’s reason for wanting to take on this project was to look after the DC characters. He mentioned how it had been a messed-up road for many of them in recent years. Gunn said:

“I can’t go into politics. I can’t do anything with science. So the only thing I can do for this planet is to create stories about love. And that’s what I think that we can do over the next eight to 10 years.”

Safran and Gunn’s goals for the new DC Universe are broad, as they are attempting to reboot and readjust DC movies, TV shows, games, and more.
