As you know, when the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery was announced, several changes were introduced. One of these was deletion DCEU present and begins to play out a 10-year plan, much in the style of the MCU. However, this project faces a major problem, Who will be in charge of overseeing this cinematographic universe?
According to a new report from Variety, David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, He has indicated that he wants Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to remain, to oversee his 10-year plan with the DCEU. In a recent investor meeting on the matter, the executive commented:
“We did a reset. We’ve restructured the business where we’re going to focus, where there will be a team with a ten-year plan focused solely on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horne and Bob Iger put together so effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney.”
But there is a big problem, there is no strong candidate at the moment. The report mentions three names that stand out at the moment. One of them is Greg Berlanti, who oversees several DC projects for television, viz Flash y Superman and Lois. Unfortunately, it has been noted that the producer is not interested in this position, and may refuse it if offered.
On the other hand, we have Dan Lin, who produced The Lego Movie y Sherlock Holmes. During his participation in its podcast the anchorAfter Lin canceled the comment Justice League By George Miller in 2008, one of his goals was to oversee DC projects in movies. But currently she is engaged with Universal.
Finally, we have Walter Hamada, who directed Warner Bros. Overseeing the DCEU before its merger with Discovery. But after the cancellation Dr Batgirl, indicated that he was considering leaving his post. The only thing that’s clear is that Warner Bros. Discovery has a serious problem at this point, and there’s no obvious solution at this point. Relatedly, it seems Batman 2 Runs the risk of cancellation.
Sadly, outside of Zack Snyder, there doesn’t seem to be anyone else with a clear vision for the DCEU. While this director’s return seems unlikely, Warner Bros. Discovery should find someone soon if they want to fulfill their 10-year plan.
