Warner Bros. is planning to make big changes to their DC Comics movies. After the negative critical reception to both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad the studio has been adapting to make more universally loved films.
Today Warner Bros. CEO Jeff Bewkes confirmed that the studio is working to change the DC Extended Universe, and is making future movies lighter, to match the tone of the comics.
“The strategy worked, the execution did deliver what we wanted to do. We can do a little better on the creative. … We’re right on course or better. The DC Comics characters … have a little more lightness in them than maybe what you saw in those movies, so we’re thinking about that.”
Bewkes went on to discuss the success Warner Bros. found with Ben Affleck as Batman.
“The main thing was to launch DC and reinvigorate it with the fan base, the reboot of Batman with Ben Affleck was a big success.”
According to Variety Bewkes also spoke positively about Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman.
