As you know, once the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery was announced, several changes also appeared. One of these was to erase the DCEU current and begin to carry out a 10-year plan, very much in the style of the MCU. However, this project faces a big problem, Who will be in charge of supervising this cinematographic universe?
According to a new report by Variety, David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, has indicated that he wishes to his own Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios , to supervise his 10 plan of 10 years with the DCEU. This was what the Executive commented during a recent Board of Investors in this regard:
We have made a restart. We have restructured the business where we are going to focus, where there will be a team with a ten-year plan focused only on DC. It is very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together very effectively with Kevin Feige in Disney.
However, a big problem arises, for the moment there is no solid candidate. The report indicates three names that stand out for the moment. One of these is Greg Berlanti, who supervises several DC projects for television, such as the flash and superman and lois . Unfortunately, it is mentioned that the producer is not interested in this position, and it is likely to reject it if offers.
On the other hand, we have Dan Lin, who produced the Lego Movie and _Sherlock Holmes. During his participation in The Ankler’s podcast, Lin commented that after the cancellation of Justice League by George Miller in 2008, one of his objectives was to supervise DC projects in the cinema. However, he is currently committed to Universal.
Finally, we have Walter Hamada, who has been supervising the DCEU before the merger with Warner Bros. Discovery. However, after the cancellation of batgirl, he mentioned that he is considering leaving his position. The only thing that is clear is that Warner Bros. Discovery has a serious problem at the moment, and there is no clear solution right now. In related issues, it seems that the Batman 2 runs the risk of being canceled.
Unfortunately, outside Zack Snyder, it seems that there is no other person with a clear vision for the DCEU. Although this director’s return seems impossible, Warner Bros. Discovery should find someone as soon as they want to fulfill their 10-year plan.
