With the new strategies being promoted by David Zaslav for Warner, DC is planning a reboot or a change of the helm and this comic book company will reach a new level. This reset led to the cancellation of many productions. was one of the most talked about Bat girlwhich was canceled shortly before its completion.

This has caused many problems in achieving his goals. Some of them are connected to the decisions of the CEO of Warner, causing great discomfort to the members of this company. On the other hand, difficulties such as the controversy behind Ezra Miller and The lightning have become apparent.
All the challenges after the DC Films reboot
David Zaslav announced the reboot of DC Films after confirming the cancellation of Batgirl to reduce the company’s taxes. However, this seems somewhat difficult due to the internal and external challenges he will have to face now. He will first have to regain the trust of the staff and managers of these companies.
The abrupt cancellation of Batgirl caused resentment and distrust among Warner employees and actors. This cancellation caused many actors, directors and writers to question whether the products they worked on would be released or shelved. It’s not just the employees and producers of the various Warner and DC films and series who are upset and showing disbelief. Executives are doing it too, as is the case with DC Films president Walter Hamada, who nearly resigned from his position after learning of the film’s cancellation.

Another factor that adds difficulty to this reboot is the legal issues with the main actors from their films. First, we have Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, dealing with marketing issues following the legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. Fans demanded that DC remove the actress. However, Warner said it would continue regardless. This decision could cause low box office for this film.
The Flash is also in trouble due to the legal problems surrounding its protagonist, Ezra Miller. Miller has been arrested several times in Hawaii and Vermont for disorderly and illegal behavior, causing audiences to lose their bearings. Warner has not commented on the matter, even though the public wants the actor removed.
Superman: Reboot or Continuation with Henry Cavill?
Many rumors are talking about Superman and who would play this role. if it was henry cavill or any other actor he would reboot this character. During San Diego Comic-Con, a rumor claimed that Cavill would appear at the DC panel to announce his return. However, this never happened and Warner never mentioned anything about it.
This could mean that Cavill no longer has a place at DC Films or as Superman. This actor’s relations with the company are not so good due to creative and financial differences. Hopefully Zaslav’s reboot will listen to the public’s requests and change this fact. Fans want to create the same effect as Justice League: Snyder Cut on social media. They’re asking for a Superman reboot with Cavill as a rep. We’ll have to wait for Zaslav’s decision, though the latest developments seem to confirm the end of the Snyder Verse at Warner.

On the other side of the coin, Warner may still go ahead with JJ Abrams’ version of Superman, which would feature Michael B. Jordan as the first Superman in color. However, there are no official statements from Warner or DC regarding this. Finally, insiders claim that the Snyder Cut should never have happened. According to Varietysources close to Warner and DC said that hearing the #ReleaseTheSynerCut movement was detrimental to them and created a rift between fans and the studio.
All these issues are causing fans and audience to feel confused. Some claim that Zaslav is doing a complete purge to help restore the DCEU, while others claim that he has no idea how to run this company. Only time will tell; let’s just hope the changes aren’t too little too late.
