After “Batgirl” was surprisingly canceled, Warner Bros. Discovery revised its DC plan.
The surprising news has just circulated that the already finished “Batgirl” film with Leslie Grace (“In the Heights”) and Batman actor Michael Keaton has been completely canceled and will not be released. As part of the Warner Bros. merger with Discovery, DC Universe one new direction inspired by the structure of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and aiming to leave the films of Zack Snyder behind.
During the quarterly investor call (via colliders) has the new Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav explains how the DC Universe will continue:
“It will be a team with one Giving a ten-year plan that focuses only on DC. A very similar structure to the one that Alan Horne and Bob Iger developed very effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney. We believe we can make DC a long term, much more sustainable growth business and as part of that we will focus on quality. We won’t release a film until it’s finished.”
With this, Zaslav reacts directly to the “Batgirl” message. Accordingly, the film was so bad that those responsible would rather make losses than damage their image. At the same time, DC fans can look forward to a similar number of related films as in the MCU. Our video explains how the multiverse works:
Great hope for “Black Adam” and Co.
The CEO goes on to explain that the upcoming DC films such as “Black Adam” and “The Flash” are very good, but that there is still room for improvement here:
“The focus will be: How do we make each and every one of these films as good as possible overall? DC is something we can do even better and that’s what we’re focusing on now. We have some great DC movies ahead of us. ‘Black Adam’, ‘Shazam!’ and ‘Flash’. We work on all these films. We’ve seen them and we think they’re great and that we can make them even better.”
The restructuring of Warner Bros. Discovery also affects the US streaming services HBO Max and Discovery+, which will be merged into one brand. At the same time, the studio wants to focus more on theatrical releases and scale back production of streaming content (via slash movie). For fans, this means that other films and series could be canceled.
