Warner Bros’ DC Extended Universe took a massive hit when Justice League failed to entice the audience. Following that disaster, the company has adopted a new strategy. Speaking to LA Times, chairman and chief executive officer of Warner Bros Kevin Tsujihara opined that the DCU is going on the ‘right track’ since it is focussing a lot less on creating a shared universe and is looking more at individual characters.
"You’re seeing much more focus on individual experiences around individual characters. That’s not to say we won’t at some point come back to that notion of a more connected universe. But it feels like that’s the right strategy for us right now," Tsujihara was quoted as saying by the publication. He also mentioned that with Shazam!, Joker, Wonder Woman 1984 and Birds of Prey, the DCEU looks like it is on the right track and that the company has got the right people working on them.
What Tsujihara says seems to be working. DC’s recent hit releases – Wonder Woman and Aquaman – were well received. Both these films featured on single heroes, unlike Justice League, which had a collection of heroes in a single film and failed critically. For fans, this would mean that the upcoming DC films will have little connections with each other. For those asking for an Avengers-style DC rendition aka Justice League, you’ll have to wait a while before that becomes a reality.Read More
