DC in an unstable situation
Released last week the animated film Krypto and the Super-Animals succeeded in conquering its public. black adam and Shazam! 2scheduled for October and December, are highly anticipated by DC fans and the forecasts for the success of these two films are encouraging…But that’s about all that’s going well with DC right now. The panel at San Diego Comic-Con was pretty skinny and left superhero fans hungry, and the expected productions for 2023, Aquaman 2 and The Flash, have suffered from a few scandals in recent months. We wonder how DC will recover.
Today, another bad news is added to this already full list. Batgirl movie cost Warner Bros. and had almost finished its post-production, and yet we learned today that the feature film dedicated to the superheroine is now canceled and would never see the light of day. According to the studios spokesperson, this decision is the result of a strategic change of direction regarding the DC Universe. Amid fans outraged by the cancellation of a movie they’ve been waiting for, some still see it as proof that it’s time to put Zack Snyder’s universe back in place…
The return of the Snyderverse?
Of course, during Comic-Con, DC Studios seemed to have buried the Synderverse for good. They may have to backtrack on that statement eventually. In recent weeks, Zack Snyder agitates the community of his fans with his publications on the social network Vero. In June, he let it be known that a possible next film by Superman with Henry Cavill was possible, and now he’s freaking fans out by possibly teasing the return of Batman. Where we could see simple jokes, we must not forget that the director cleverly uses social networks to send messages to his fans. And it works, even today, the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse continues to be all the rage on Twitter.
The clues don’t just come from the Justice League director. It is now official that Michael Keaton’s Batman cameo in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom has been replaced by Ben Affleck’s. Then again, fans want to believe in the return of Zack Snyder’s superheroes. If we go back to Comic-Con, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has teased a possible feature film opposing Black Adam and Superman. Add to this that he has repeatedly indicated his opinion on the direction that DC studios and Warner Bros. should take. : it’s necessary listen to the fans and give them what they want. It’s probably one of the biggest hopes of the community of Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s Superman, whose return is eagerly awaited, although DC seems not to want to take this path for the moment.
The next DC Extended Universe movie, Black Adam, out October 19 at the cinema.
