THE TRENCH gets killed with a trident*.

I was looking forward to THE TRENCH, too. This is too bad: “”As part of our DC slate, some legacy development titles including New Gods and The Trench will not be moving forward,” Warner Bros. and DC said in a statement. “We thank our partners Ava DuVernay, Tom King, James Wan and Peter Safran for their time and collaboration during this process and look forward to our continued partnership with them on other DC stories. The projects will remain in their skillful hands if they were to move forward in the future.””

Via @SonnyBunch. Sonny is taking the presumably tongue-in-cheek position that this is good news for a restored Snyderverse, but I am (again, presumably) much more dubious about that. I think it’s much easier to just assume this decision is due to the way that the movie industry has been taking body blows for the last year. Pick a reason for why: you’re probably right.

Still, again, a shame. DC-flavored Deep Ones would have been fun.
