Dawn of the Seven is a summer 2021 team-up movie in the Vought Cinematic Universe starring The Seven to depict a fictionalized history of their hiring of Stormfront, firing of A-Train, and Queen Maeve coming out as a lesbian (instead of Homelander outing her, and her real sexuality being bisexual). The film features overt pandering to the female demographic with Queen Maeve, Starlight, and Stormfront working together and delivering the tagline "Girls Get It Done". The film was directed by Adam Bourke, who also wrote the initial screenplay. After concerns from Stormfront over the film's representation of women, the studio had the script rewritten by a writer named Joss.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
The concept of the film is a spoof of real-world superhero team-up movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Detective Comics Expanded Universe. Comparisons can be made to movies such as:
- Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016): The logo and the title are a reference to the movie. Adam Bourke stated that the movie will be scored by composer Hans Zimmer, well known for scoring movies such as Man of Steel (2013), Batman vs. Superman (2016), Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy (2005-2012).
- Justice League (2017): The movie appears to be going trough major shifts on the script and filming, which resembles the problematic production of Justice League. Homelander says the script was rewritten by someone named Joss, an allusion to writer and director Joss Whedon, who took assumed the direction duties after its original director, Zack Snyder, was fired mid production. Whedon is also blamed by the failure of the movie and its desastrous consequences to DCEU.
- The Avengers (2012): Most of the conflict on the movie seems to be shot in New York, a reference to the final act of Marvel's The Avengers;
- Avengers: Endgame (2019): The movie is said to be a conclusion to over twelve years of movies of the Vought Cinematic Universe, much like Endgame is a conclusion to Marvel's Infinity Saga. There's also a scene featuring a team-up of all the movie's female heroes, a reference to the all-girl fight scene from Endgame, which many deemed as unnecessary and forced.
