The Warner Bros and Discovery merger has been off to a weird start. The 90-million "Batgirl" movie will no longer be released, while the future of "The Flash" is unknown due to Ezra MIller's controversies. The DC Universe has struggled to create a coherent franchise with audiences and critics. Some of the best films, such as "The Joker" and "The Batman," have come away from the main timeline.
There seem to be changes coming to the DCU. David Zaslav, President and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, said in an earnings call, "There will be a team with a 10-year plan focusing just on DC. It's very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together, very effectively, with Kevin Feige at Disney. We're not going to release a film to make a quarter. We're not going to release a film unless the focus is going to be, 'How do we make each of these films in general as good as possible?'"
