Is Warner Bros. Worried About the DCEU?
< >
We're just going to come out and say it: We're worried about the DCEU. Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad were two of the worst-reviewed movies of the year, The Flash is looking for its third director after losing Rick Famuyiwa, and Wonder Woman is heading for reshoots. But one person isn't worried about the state of DC's movie universe: Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsuijhara.

According to a recent interview with the New York Times, the studio head said "he was confident that management changes he has been making (putting a pair of executives, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, in charge of superhero movies, for instance) will make for more satisfied fans. With any luck, even a critic or two could come around."

Tsuijhara also noted that BvS and Suicide Squad made a combined $1.6 billion, so they're not exactly financial failures. That may be true, but if the quality of the films doesn't improve, then fans will eventually stop showing up. Tsuijhara doesn't seem concerned about that though, because he's seen Wonder Woman and claims it's very good.

The thing that really makes me confident is that I've seen Wonder Woman, and it's great.

Obviously, Tsuijhara isn't going to trash his company's biggest brand, but we'll have to wait and see if his optimism turns out to be justified.
