Who will lead the DCEU now?

Warner Bros. Discovery is reportedly looking for its very own Kevin Feige. According to Variety, studio head David Zaslav is determined to find his very own version of the Marvel maestro to lead the DCEU’s upcoming ten-year plan.

“We have done a reset,” he said during a recent earnings call. “We’ve restructured the business where we’re going to focus, where there will be a team with a ten-year plan focusing just on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together very effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney.”

But who will take the top job?

There seem to be two frontrunners currently – whether they know it or not. Greg Berlanti, who already oversees many of DC’s TV projects such as The Flash and Superman & Lois, is said to be a name that’s high on the list.

However, according to Variety, nobody has actually approached the producer, and it’s thought that he would be unlikely to sign onto the top job. He hasn’t pursued the position himself and is thought to not be interested in chasing an internal position.

Elsewhere, Dan Lin, who produced The LEGO Movie and Sherlock Holmes, recently lamented his lack of involvement in the DCEU after the ill-fated 2008 George Miller Justice League fell through. During an episode of The Ankler podcast, he said that, at the time, he was pursued to “oversee the entire DC franchise”.

But as Warner Bros. Discovery has since changed the DCEU landscape, it’s unknown whether he would even be interested at this stage. Additionally, he’s already committed to his own production company Rideback, which has an ongoing deal with Universal.

At this point, the list of potential candidates is running a little low. Even the names mentioned seem unlikely to take the plunge.

So, who will take the reins of the DCEU going forward? Walter Hamada, who had been overseeing the DCEU before the Warner Bros. Discovery merger, was recently said to be so incensed by Batgirl’s cancelation that he almost quit his job.
