Since the start of the summer, major changes have been needed in DC. Warner wants to remodel and restart the DCEU, which is struggling. And figures are required for it. He would have been discovered by the distributor, and it’s not Zack Snyder.
DC CHANGES ITS PLANS
Remember how Warner Bros. Discovery executives announced an almost total restructure of the DCEU after the Batgirl debacle at the beginning of last August?
A shift made while the DC multiverse is in perdition, while that of Marvel continues to expand. We must act, and quickly. First, the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery last April acted as a catalyst , its CEO David Zaslav presented things during an interview during the presentation of the group’s financial results, in which it could be noted that the DCEU would refocus on its figureheads ( Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman ), and on a 10-year plan.
WHO TO EMBODY THIS RENEWAL?
What poses a problem is the company’s intention to model its universe after that of rival Marvel, which, in Zaslav’s words, has “a structure very similar to that which Alan Horn and Bob Iger have put in place, very efficiently, with Kevin Feige at Disney.”
As a result, we are aware that Warner requires talent to oversee its initiative, much like Kevin Feige does with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. a position that Walter Hamada most recently held as CEO of DC Films. Given that the post is open, it would seem that Warner Bros. Discovery is actively seeking for someone to take on this “Feige-inspired” role. Greg Berlanti is one of the candidates under consideration.
Therefore, Berlanti’s name was brought up for playing the part again, according to Variety. The Titans, Stargirl, and Batwoman producer would be a great lead for Warner Bros. Discovery if no conversation has yet been started between the two companies. The Arrowverse, which comprised the Arrow television series, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Superman & Lois, was also created by Berlanti. a seasoned individual.
This theory would, however, not be without opposition from certain admirers. The shows he produced, such as Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, were criticized for having wonderful ideas but eventually falling short of their full potential and losing their creative vigor after a few seasons.
Producer Dan Lin, to whom we owe films like The LEGO Batman Movie and Godzilla vs. Kong in particular, is another contender named by Variety. Lin apparently did not investigate these claims, though.
At the same time, we are aware that Warner Bros. Discovery has just rehired Alan Horn, who served as the company’s president and chief operating officer from 1999 to 2012, as a consultant for its film production team.
He is a wonderful example of the studio’s impact in the 2000s, when series like Harry Potter and the Batman trilogy were at their height.
