Warner Bros. is currently prioritizing strategic plans for the upcoming DCEU title Wonder Woman and Justice League. However, fans are still skeptical about the success of Zack Snyder’s film due to the downfall of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Earlier, an open letter claimed to be written by a Warner Bros. employee became a material of negative press for DCEU. While Geoff Johns, Patty Jenkins, and many others supported their cinematic universe, it looks like Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes has decided to share support for the studio’s upcoming comic book movies.
According to Deadline, the CEO recently addressed an investor gathering and spoke about the DC Comic Universe. Bewkes revealed that their upcoming DC films will contain “more lightness in them” compared to Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.
Zack Snyder and David Ayer’s movie was considered a success among CBM fans and was also a financial success for Warner Bros.; however, the movie was bashed by critics and was criticized to be unnecessarily dark for a superhero movie.
Bewkes revealed that “these movies [Previous DCEU titles] were very successful in the strategic aims and financial aims we had for them. So the strategy worked. The execution did deliver what we wanted….What you shouldn’t take away is that you should be worried about this. We’re actually more optimistic about it than we were….We’re right on course, or better.”
The Time Warner CEO also said that their titles have “a little room for improvement” as well. Recently, it was revealed that DC Comics COO and President Geoff Johns made significant rewrites to Zack Snyder’s story in Justice League.
Currently, fans are expecting DCEU’s Wonder Woman on June 2, 2017. The screenplay for the film was also written by Geoff Johns.
