Why it's a terrific idea to can Henry Cavill and that DC movie universe, says NY Post – NY Post
On Wednesday it was revealed that Henry Cavill was fired as Superman, a cape he has donned since 2013. The new heads of DC, James Gunn and Peter Safran, also recently nixed director Patty Jenkins’ plans for “Wonder Woman 3.” Meanwhile, actor Robert Pattinson’s “Batman” films and Todd Phillips’ “Joker” sequel, with Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, will be allowed to move forward but will not be a part of the DCEU.
Good riddance. DC’s movies are mostly terrible and make a pittance at the box office compared to its rival Marvel Studios, which is owned by Disney. Warner Bros., which kicked off the comic book bloodbath this summer with the dramatic shelving of “Batgirl,” has finally figured this out.
It’s a major shakeup that’s been a long time coming.

The artist says his job is to stand between the writer and the reader to make stories come alive.
He drew a parallel with Stan Lee's Spider-Man (Marvel) and its famous adage, "With great power comes great responsibility". "It is the opposite [of DC], where with accepting great responsibility, great powers will come your way."
He said that the readership gets divided between these two themes of Marvel and DC, often touted as 'rivals'.

Marvel's blueprint could keep them busy for another hundred years of movies – Polygon
The next decade of the MCU is somewhat easy to predict; Marvel Studios has already scheduled most of the next four years’ worth of tentpoles, and hinted at what lies beyond. The recently released Wakanda Forever concluded what producer Kevin Feige calls “Phase Four” of the MCU, the introductory act of the “Multiverse Saga” that will run through 2026. Feige has suggested that the mercurial time-traveler Kang (played by Jonathan Majors, and first seen in the Loki TV show) is going to be a major presence in that sequence—the next Avengers movie, planned for May 2025, is subtitled The Kang Dynasty.
