Warner Bros. Discovery announces new strategy for DC Films after Batgirl cancellation

August 4, 2022 Warner Bros. Discovery held an investor meeting where various individuals within the company shed light on what lies ahead. Speaking about DC movies of the future, CEO David Zaslav revealed that the plan is to take a completely new approach to such projects. “We think we can build a long-term, much stronger and more sustainable growth business from DC. And within that, we will focus on quality. We’re not going to release any movie until it’s ready,” he said, making it perfectly clear that Warner Bros. Discovery will take quality over quantity as part of its new 10-year plan (via Hollywood Reporter).

Based on this, Zaslav noted that the focus is indeed on theatrical projects rather than streaming, which confirms the claims that Batgirl was on the chopping block due to the alleged release of HBO Max. “We’re not going to release a movie if we don’t believe in it,” he explained, adding, “The goal is to grow the DC brand. Develop DC characters, but it’s also our job to protect the DC brand. And that’s what we’re going to do.” That being said, you can expect to see fewer DC titles every year, though hopefully when they do, they’ll be worth the wait.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens to DC under Warner Bros. mode. discovery. One can only hope that with this new, revised plan, only good things await us.
