‘The Authority’ Film In Development For The New DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran’s slate featured some mainstays of the DC Universe, but there were some surprising announcements as well. One such project is The Authority film based on the team from the Wildstorm imprint.
Created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch in 1999, the team debuted in The Authority #1. Part of DC Comics Wildstorm imprint, the group was comprised of superheroes who get the job done by any means necessary. The original team lineup included Jenny Sparks, Hawksmoor, Swift, Apollo, Midnighter, The Engineer, and The Doctor.
Gunn did not confirm a creative team for the film nor any actors they are eyeing. The co-chairman of DC Studios referred to the teams as well-intentioned heroes who view the world as broken. As a result, they have to take matters into their own hands.
