Superman’s comeback in the cinema New leadership plans changes to DC comic adaptations

Warner Bros.

On April 8th, after long examinations and the approvals of the various authorities in the USA and Europe, there was a sensational deal worth billions. In doing so, Warner Media and Discovery Inc. were merged into a new company called Warner Bros. Discovery. Why should this interest us film fans? The company’s new boss is former Discovery CEO David Zaslav, and he’s said to want to put a big focus on the DC comic book adaptations.

As industry magazine Variety reports, Zaslav believes that realizing the full potential of DC Comics characters is critical to the future of the new company. So far, this should not be the case and, in his opinion, DC still lacks a coherent strategy. Zaslav has probably already used the months and weeks leading up to the deal to set up plans in the background.

«Superman» comeback and more stuff like «Joker»?

According to the industry magazine Variety , the current DC film boss Walter Hamada will probably continue to manage the day-to-day business under Zaslav. Since he took office in 2018, the films have been received much better by the public and critics than before. He can probably also partly take credit for the fact that a film like “ Joker ” was such a success, which should impress the new bosses around Zaslav. «Joker» but also dealing with Harley Quinn are «radiant examples of how you can and should use DC characters from the second row». However, this is still happening too little…

Zaslav is said to be saddened that such a popular character as Superman, a hero from the top shelf, is only «floating around». That has to change, the character urgently needs to be «revived». So we can expect that under the new leadership, a new Superman movie will be given a very high priority. Whether with Henry Cavill in a kind of “ Man Of Steel 2 ” or a completely new approach, that remains the question.

Streaming or cinema, the main thing is more DC

In general, the new management seems to want to go even more consistently along the path they have recently taken. There must be more DC content. Hamada has been driving this forward for the past few years. For example, he demanded that a streaming spin-off should automatically be included in every movie. After » The Suicide Squad » came » Peacemaker «, after » The Batman » there are already several series (about Colin Farrell’s penguin and about the villains in Arkham) in progress. However, the new management believes that DC must do more, i.e. produce and publish even more – above all, it is not just about films and series in the cinema or streaming, but also about video games.

The reports are somewhat contradictory as to whether you want to emulate Marvel more and want to settle everything in a common universe. Actually, Warner and DC said goodbye to it. According to Variety , however, Zaslav has been looking for someone for the past few weeks who would become something like the DC version of Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige — which is really only needed if you want to tie everything together more closely.

The explanation for this inconsistency is possibly the statement of an insider: He reveals that Zaslav is not about finding a «creative guru», but rather someone with a business background who can manage the different areas of DC to work together more harmoniously. The comparison with Feige is therefore not appropriate, despite the superficially similar supervisory role. Here, too, it should be more about providing more output.

In any case, there are many indications that DC fans can expect significantly more films, series etc. with the various characters from the comic forge and that Superman will also play a major role again. The next DC film is Black Adam , starring Dwayne Johnson, which is scheduled to hit theaters on October 20, 2022.
