The DC Extended Universe Reddit leaks entailed rumors involving Warner Brothers’ future plans. This is to be taken with a grain of salt, but according to Screen Geek “they don’t seem too far off.” It was initially posted on Reddit by QuestionManVicsage, but it was removed. Screen Geek took the liberty of getting all the DCEU rumors down.

The Reddit leak is pretty long, so here is a shortened version.

It looks like the Reddit leaks went into overdrive as this is just a shortened version of the list. The full version can be found there as well.
DC Extended Universe Rumors Not Far Off?
Just a couple of bullet points to point out so that some of this may sound pretty spot on, even though it’s just a rumor.
It was mentioned as it wasn’t too far off the mark. If you consider Dwayne “The Rock Johnson,” he and his partner Dany Garcia are working together in earnest to make this happen. Their company Seven Bucks Productions is working with New Line Cinema, a division of Warner Brothers. Johnson and Garcia are working together to co-produce Shazam! So it would make sense that they’d stay in constant contact.

The next DC Extended Universe Reddit rumor point to consider is Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke. Fans went nuts when Ben Affleck posted a quick tease of a man in the costume. That said, the actor was once rumored to play Deathstroke and according to Slash Film is now in London. He also followed Zack Snyder on Twitter. Of course, tons of people that aren’t Deathstroke follow the director as well.
Apparently, this is somehow tied into a September 2 event that will reveal Warner Brother’s plans. The one that comes to mind is the DC All Access event as there was a press release for it via DCComics. It is unsure whether or not all the aforementioned has anything to do with the DC All Access event.
