The CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery has a 10-year plan and wants to emulate the MCU

The DC Universe movie franchise is being overhauled, according to David Zazslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery. However, when asked specifically about the cancellation of Batgirl and the future of DC movies, Zazslav said, “We’re not going to release a movie unless we believe it.”

During the Q2 investor call, Zazslav never mentioned Batgirl by name, but had a say on the future of DC movies: “We’re not going to release a movie until it’s ‘t ready… We’re not going to release a movie, and we’re not going to release a movie, unless we believe in it.”

After mentioning the list of superheroes that Warner Bros. Discovery has in its stable, Zazslav went on to say that there has been a restructuring for DC films as a whole. “We’ve done a reset, we’ve restructured the business that we’re going to focus on, where they’ll form a team with a 10-year plan just focusing on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob “Iger partnered very effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney. We believe we could build a much stronger, long-term sustainable growth business out of DC and within that, we’re going to focus on quality.”

Zazslav then mentioned other upcoming movies the studio is releasing, including Black Adam, the sequel to Shazam, and The Flash, whose star has recently been in trouble. There’s been no mention, as of this writing, of how this new plan will affect the future of HBO Max TV shows like Peacemaker and Harley Quinn.

The call for investors focused on the upcoming HBO Max/Discovery+ merged streaming site, which will launch next year. Currently, the content exchange between Discovery+ and HBO Max has already begun with CNN original content heading to Discovery+. Warner Bros. Discovery reported 92.1 million subscribers across all of its streaming services in the second quarter of 2022.
