According to The Hollywood Reporterthe president of DC Films, Walter Hamadais about to exit the division after the Warner Bros. Discovery decided to archive the film from ‘Batgirl’.
apparently, Hamada already consulted a lawyer to mediate his dismissal. However, he intends to remain in the post until the end of October to accompany the film’s reception of the ‘black adam‘.
As the portal makes clear, Hamada is planning to leave the studio, but he’s not yet fully committed to the decision.
A source linked to the backstage of the Warner Bros. Discovery said that the executiveis taking a break and he’s still not sure about a possible dismissal.”
For those who don’t know, Hamada was hired to head the DC Films after the attempt to launch the shared universe that started with ‘Batman v Superman’, ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Justice League‘.
After that, Hamada was tasked with transitioning the franchise beyond the defunct Snyderverse, combining ‘batgirl‘, ‘The Flash’, ‘Aquaman’, ‘The Suicide Squad‘ and future adaptations.
In addition, he was also responsible for overseeing independent DC films such as ‘joker’and TV projects such as ‘Peacemaker’, ‘Young Justice‘ and the animated series from ‘Harley Quinn‘.
However, now that the DC Films and the Warner Bros.. are under the flag of Warner Bros. Discoveryled by David Zaslavthere was a drastic change behind the scenes of the company.
Apparently, Zaslav wants to redefine the entire strategy that the DC Films established for the next 10 years, in an attempt to make the brand a strong rival for Marvel Studios.
in may, Zaslav had already issued a statement, saying that:
“We think we can build a much stronger and more sustainable growth business by redefining DC properties in film and television. As part of that, we’re going to focus on quality. We’re not going to release any movies before they’re done… DC deserves improvement, and that’s something we’re capable of doing.”
Now we just have to wait to find out if the merger of Warner Bros. with the Discovery will benefit adaptations based on the DC Universe.
Until then, it’s worth remembering that the studio’s next film is ‘black adam‘, arrives in national cinemas october 20the day before the US premiere.
