Warner Bros. wants his own Kevin Feige to lead the DCEU
Now that Discovery has officially acquired WarnerMedia, we may be seeing some structural changes in the DC Extended Universe. According to Varietythe new CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav is looking for a Kevin Feige-like figure to unite the DCEU into a more cohesive entity.
Zaslav is looking for “candidates with experience building and nurturing successful IP with the goal of potentially finding someone to serve as a creative and strategic czar similar to what Marvel has at Kevin Feige”. On top of that, the desired candidate is also described as “someone who has the kind of business background needed to make all of DC’s different factions work more harmoniously.” It sounds like a huge job to fill, but someone has to fill it if DC is to truly compete with what has already been built at Marvel Studios.
Originally, Warner Bros. had planned for filmmaker Zack Snyder to spearhead a new era of superhero movies. While Snyder has clearly garnered a devoted fanbase — rallying for the Snyder Cut being a prime example — his DC character-based movies haven’t quite done as well as the studio’s less conventional installments. For example, Aquaman and wonder woman provided a completely new take on their characters. Joker and The Batman existed completely outside the parameters of Snyder’s cinematic universe.
While Warner Bros. Discovery is looking for a potential showrunner for the DCEU, we still have plenty of movies to look forward to, including black adam, Shazam! Fury of the gods, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdomand The flash. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. ventured into streaming series with Peacemaker on HBO Max.
