Now that the New Gods movie has been canceled what about all that once awesome spec?
For a while, more than a few years back DC spec was almost as high priority as Marvel. Over the past half decade or so that changed. Marvel is king of comic book/movie/TV show spec and that isn’t going to change any time soon.
So, now what happens to any New Gods speculation that may have re-ignited over the past year when the film was first announced? Well, in my opinion if you own those keys don’t sell unless you have to. Put them back in the slow burn box and hold them. If you missed the first boat on them it might be a good idea to wait a few months and when the prices are low grab what you can.
I do think it is only a matter of time before a New Gods movie/show is made or at the very least the main characters are used in other film properties.
New Gods #1, Jimmy Olsen #134, Forever People #1, Mister Miracle #1, 2, 4 & 6 may see low prices that we haven’t seen in a while so keep a look out for them in case they become affordable in high grades again.
As an example there was a time when Shazam #28 went nuts when the Rock was first rumored to play Black Adam. That was like six or seven years ago if I remember correctly. When all that stalled the book got crazy cheap for a year or two then when the rumors started again and now with full confirmation the book is at all time high prices.
I can see something like that in store for some of the New God keys. Again, just my opinion especially if the franchise sits in limbo for a lengthy period of time.
