Warner Bros. MCU-style plan Discovery won’t work

During its Q2 2022 earnings report presentation, Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) – the newly merged entertainment corporation – has revealed its plans to build a Marvel Cinematic Universe-style franchise for its own superhero film series. That being the case, the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), which is later expected to undergo a significant reboot.

Wait, Warner Bros. Haven’t you already tried that? Yes, with a lineup of films led by Zack Snyder before the studio shelved those plans in favor of a disconnected project approach and multiverse style. That plan was relatively successful, but now that Warner Bros. and Discovery have joined forces, it’s a model that’s being sidelined for an MCU-like franchise.
