Comic books fans in Brazil had a blast last weekend at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in São Paulo, Brazil. Both Marvel and DC were present at the convention with each of them vying for fan’s attention.
In addition to Marvel, we are also looking at what new information was provided by Warner Bros. for their DC Extended Universe at CCXP.
1. “Stargirl” is DC Universe’s newest super-heroine
DC announced their third original live-action series with “Stargirl”. The upcoming show is said to be a more light-hearted series compared to DC’s other live-action series such as “Titans” and “Doom Patrol”.
The series is also said to be teen-centric and will see the Justice Society and Injustice Society as a major plot point. Unfortunately, the leaked teaser trailer of “Stargirl” at the convention was taken down by DC’s request, so hopefully they will be releasing an official one soon for the public.

It’s official, Warner Bros. also announced the sequels to the DC films. Though, it should be pointed out that it was obvious that they were going to do it. Actor Zachary Levi will be returning to the sequel as Shazam, but no official production date has been announced for the film just yet. However, Levi did estimated that production could start as early as June 2020, which would fit nicely into DC’s plans. Likewise, Jason Momoa will also be reprising Aquaman.
