DC Comics Announces DC FUTURE STATE Two-Month Event Giving Glimpse Into DC Universe's Future

DC Comics was once planning a 5G reboot focusing on legacy heroes, but that's being turned into a special two-month event dubbed DC Future State, with a glimpse into a possible future for the DC Universe!

DC scrapped plans for a 5G reboot which was set to shift the publisher's focus to a future DC Universe with new heroes taking over familiar mantles, but fans will get an idea of what that would have looked like with a two-month, line-wide event this January. DC Future State will feature a combination of monthly and twice-monthly oversize anthologies, as well as a monthly schedule of miniseries and one-shots.

DC Future State is going to spotlight the DC Universe's heroes in fresh new roles, with all-new characters taking up their iconic mantles. Award-winning writers and artists with new voices from the worlds of TV, movies and animation will assemble for this event, and in March 2021, the regular DC title lineup resumes, continuing existing story lines from 2020 and introducing new arcs for the year.

However, it seems likely that the characters and titles that resonate with fans - and do big numbers in terms of sales - could return in future limited series or ongoing titles. 

"The DC Universe has always been fertile ground for new and refreshing takes on our characters, and DC Future State definitely contributes to this legacy," said DC Executive Editor Marie Javins. "When the event begins in January, some savvy readers will not only pick up on some of the breadcrumbs that have already been tossed out in our current titles, but they will also find new hints and clues of what’s to come in 2021."

A full gallery of covers can be found at the DC Comics blog along with creative team details.
