Some important changes are taking place in the studio as a result of his last disappointment with the superheroes.
It was kind of "we saw the next moment," but Variety has omitted a report that Warner Bros. is moving some key pieces behind the scenes to make sure the DCEU stays afloat. It is said that the abysmal performance of Justice League left the parent company Time Warner with the ruffled feathers, which caused the commotion.
DC Films will be in the process of restructuring in the new year. Jon Berg will leave his post as head of the film production division in DC, and will partner with producer Roy Lee. The search is underway for the replacement of Berg. It is expected that Geoff Johns, creative content consultant from DC, will remain involved with the DCEU in a certain capacity, although word spread that his role could evolve into something more advisory in the future. It also talks about the integration of DC Films with the main production arm of Warner Bros., significantly reducing the autonomy of the first in the making of films.
The position of Zack Snyder in the DC movie franchise is also on turbid ground at this point, with no immediate plans to rehire him to direct more superhero projects. There are also more rumors about Matt Reeves' independent Batman project, fueling the rumor that Ben Affleck will not really play his role there, although Affleck is expected to return as the hooded crusader one last time in the independent Flash movie.  In a way, the report is a surprise, since it could be considering the inability of DC Films to consistently capture the cinematic universe all the time. Batman v Superman almost polarized enough to affect the anticipation of the audience for Justice League and actually showed up in the box office numbers despite comparatively better reviews for the latter. There are a mix of reasons for this, some of which are detailed in the Variety report.
However, this is both the World Bank's own failure to recognize the kind of film it wanted Justice League to be, regardless of Snyder's specific brand of "arty" (or boring, depending on who ask you) the darkness. Hiring a director like Joss Whedon to "fix" some of Snyder's doubts about creating movies would never create a particularly compelling film. Instead, both styles simply canceled each other out and created a very standard movie at a time when the standard superhero rate simply no longer exceeds the cut.
Wonder Woman sailed for being sincere enough to import. But those who remained enthusiastic about the reappearance of Diana Prince had to weigh the costs of everything else compared to the character they liked. The good news was that Justice League successfully introduced new players into the DCEU. The Flash and Aquaman, in particular, managed to marginalize Batman and even Superman and create rumors about their upcoming films. I would say that Cyborg deserves more love too, however, it would be great to see where the DCEU takes it.
It's not that the franchise is completely dead in the water when there is so much to undermine these characters by. WB has also given the green light to a Shazam film that recently added Jack Dylan Grazer – one of the wonderful children of Andy Muschietti's horror, IT – to an already impressive cast of Zachary Levi and Mark Strong.
& # 39; I'm not saying that the restructuring will completely save the DCEU from collapsing on itself, but WB has taken too long to corner a good market, as it tried to catch up with other long-running superhero series. Even less consistent franchises like X-Men have done a lot to resurrect themselves, but DC still lags behind. This seems quite obvious after the success of Wonder Woman but WB should play with the strengths of these iconic characters and focus much more on refining relatable stories. Maybe that's because it leaves behind the influence of Zack Snyder, but also helps to have a more secure view of what the whole universe wants to achieve.
