Warner Bros. has been trying to get a DC Cinematic Universe off the ground for over a decade now, especially since Disney found great success with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This grand plan began with Steel man but began to fall apart after Zack Snyder left in 2017 Justice League and say goodbye to her the Lord of the Rings-inspired blueprint for an epic DC saga.
In the five years since the Justice League incident, DC tried to get things back on track but never quite found the cohesiveness of a cinematic universe. Progress has been partially hampered by the absence of Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman, who should be the faces of this universe, yet haven’t appeared in five years.
The merger of Warner Bros. With Discovery now complete, many are eager to see how the new management plans to handle DC. There were worrying signs after the cancellation of bat girlbut new comments revealed a larger plan for the future.
DC is making plans for the future inspired by the MCU
During Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav revealed that “DC is at the top of the list” of his plans moving forward as they attempt to mirror Marvel Studios’ methods.
It’s said that DC’s best heroes are considered a “big opportunity” for the business moving forward. Additionally, Zaslav confirmed that they will be building “a team with a 10-year plan focused solely on DC,” similar to what Disney did with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige:
“As we look at the opportunities we have broadly, DC is high on the list for us. You look at Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, these are brands that are known around the world and the ability to drive those in the world with great stories is a great opportunity for us. We’ve done a reset. We’ve restructured the company that we’re going to focus on. There will be a team with a 10-year plan focused solely on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together very effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney.”
Zaslav also shared his goals of “focus on quality” to ensure that projects are only published when they are completely ready:
“We believe we can build a much stronger, sustainable, long-term, sustainable growth business out of DC. And as part of that, we’re going to focus on quality, we’re not going to release a movie until We’re not going to release a film to make a quarter, the focus will be on ‘how do we make these films in general as good as possible?’ But DC is something we think we can improve on, and we’re focusing on that now.”
