With all the changes taking place in DC Studios’ division of Warner Bros. Discovery, fans of the comics and their live-action adaptations are desperate for a glimpse of what the future will hold.
New DC Studios CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran, who have both worked on a number of DC films in the past, were introduced to the ranks of Warner Bros. Discovery by company boss David Zaslav via a global Zoom call on Thursday, Deadline reports. A gathering any DC fan would have loved to have attended.
Some believe the meeting demonstrates intent and direction from Warner Bros., qualities that have historically been lacking in the DC film universe.
DC Studios, previously run by Walter Hamada under the guise of DC Films, has undergone a complete reform, and fans are hopeful of what that could mean for their favorite heroes. Ben Affleck’s Batman, and particularly Henry Cavill’s Superman, have had a somewhat rocky road in the DCU in recent years, a reality Gunn seems intent on changing.
However, not everyone is so enthusiastic. A fan pokes fun at Gunn’s love for the DC Comics team Metal Men and Bat-Mite, the biggest Batman fan of them all. “DC is doomed,” they declared in capital letters.
This isn’t the first time James Gunn has made his love for Bat-Mite apparent after sneaking in a reference to the character in his The Suicide Squad HBO Max spin-off show peacemaker.
In addition to that introductory Zoom call, Gunn and Safran also announced earlier this week that they are working on a 10-year plan for DC Studios. Maybe this time the superhero universe will finally take hold and actually stick with it.
