Is true. The power spectrum in the DC universe is about to change. But it he will not be Black Adam to make a change – it’s Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav. At a recent event, he explained the future of DC Films as the focus is even more singular than in the past. “There won’t be four Batmans,” he said.

Speaking at the Technology, Internet, Media and Telecommunications Conference (via IndieWire), the head of the company discussed what he feels that DC should do to be more successful, and, in fact, look at Marvel. “The trick is [former Disney CEO Bob] “Iger combined all the Marvels in one place,” said Zaslav. “You don’t wake up and find out there’s a Batman TV show somewhere and a Batman cartoon elsewhere, they all need to communicate with each other. There should be a look and feel to everything. And so, I went on a journey a few months ago, ‘How do I put all of DC in one place?’ Because I think it’s one of the biggest opportunities for this company. ”

The answer, it turns out, comes with hiring new heads of DC Films James Gunn and Peter Safran, tasked with creating a new future, focused on the brand. “Part of our plan is to drive the hell out of DC, which Jacob and Peter will do,” Zaslav said. “The fans were happy, I think they will keep you excited for a while. But we’re also focused on our creative opportunity, the best content that everyone has in the world, and we’re focused on telling those stories. “

The CEO explained that Superman is, of course, the focus (“We didn’t do a Sperman film in 13 years,” he also noticed), and while Gunn is working on writing a new DC film, Safran is “fixing” Aquaman. Whatever it means. It may have something to do with reality Ben Affleck’s Batman was set to appear in the upcoming sequel? And if he does, does that give DC the four aforementioned Batmans walking around doing live action? It means Robert Pattinson in the BatmanBen Affleck inside Aquaman and the Lost KingdomMichael Keaton in the The lightand a young actor like Bruce Wayne from the Joker series? We don’t know.

It was not mentioned in the event, but one thing that brings Zaslav to mind is the history of different stories. The light. Rumor had it that the film was made with the express purpose of giving DC another starting point for storytelling. Is this the idea of ​​keeping everything focused on changing that movie? Has the CEO already been assigned The light mentally Batgirl and dismissed it as one? There are a lot of questions that need to be answered over the next few months as Gunn prepares to release what we can assume will be his last two Marvel projects (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and to be a special Christmas commercial), and DC returns to theaters with Shazam! The burning of God and The light.
