While rich come did not take place in the main DC Comics universe, it is considered one of the most popular Elseworlds storylines to ever exist under the imprint. The essence of rich come follows an alternate version of the DC Universe set in the future where heroism has changed and new superheroes lack a moral compass. This forced the Justice League to reunite to bring down the new generation. With rich come Since this isn’t just an alternate DCU story, but a story set in a completely different time, there are several ways the films could approach this storyline, particularly involving the Justice League.

One approach is to literally make an Elseworlds-type movie rich come, which could either use the actors from the DCU or cast a whole new Justice League exploring a grim future. However, if they want to tackle it in the main DCU continuity, the best they could do would be to build up rich comethis is a plot that could appear in a similar epic Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Hopefully, as DC Studios continues to move forward, Gunn’s teasing will lead to some potential DCU adaptation of rich come down the line.
