Hey, why doesn't DC just make a whole DCU over on HBO Max? – Forbes
Chief Executive Officer and president of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) David Zaslav reportedly wants major changes to the studio’s handling of DC Comics properties, including putting a lot of projects on the chopping block and insisting all DC films be theatrical releases. However, I think there’s a better long-term approach for DC brands. I believe WBD should create a shared DCEU exclusively for HBO Max, and reserve theatrical for team-up “event” films and the biggest character IP, in a way that will catch up to Marvel and generate more revenue in the long run.
