DC Struggles To Compete With Marvel After ‘Black Adam’ Reception

David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, prioritized rebuilding the DC movie franchise after Discovery & WarnerMedia merged this year.

Since Warner Bros Discovery took over, DC’s troubles seem to worsen. With so many parties involved, it may be hard to figure out how to compete with Marvel.

Recently, DC had some success with The Batman, which earned over $700 million worldwide. 

While Warner Bros Discovery wants to “Marvel-ize” DC & create a cohesive universe, there are countless projects in development that have no connection to one another & no clear vision right now.

Here’s what the article states –

“WBD didn’t take long to raise eyebrows, when it scrapped a $90 million “Batgirl” movie that was slated for HBO Max. Zaslav said during that earnings call that it’s the company’s job to “protect the DC brand” and defended theatrical releases, suggesting a streaming-first DC movie didn’t fit into the company’s plans.

At best, the move could be seen as a chance for a clean slate and to focus on the big-screen, bigger-budget movies that are the main priority for WBD. But those are causing their fair share of headaches already.

First up: “Black Adam” hits theaters this weekend, but is already receiving poor reviews with a 54% Rotten Tomatoes critic score.”
