DC Films President Walter Hamada gave a long interview with The New York Times , in which he spoke about how the DC Cinematic Universe will develop. In particular, he noted that from 2022 the company will release up to four major films a year in theaters.
At the same time, HBO Max will release less expensive films (up to two a year), dedicated to more niche characters, such as Batgirl or Static. DC Films will also be involved in spin-off series that will be tied to the mainstream films in one way or another.
Hamada said that DC Films will now begin to use the concept of multiverse, so viewers should expect a parallel development of the same character. For example, there will be two Batman in the DCU in the future.
Hamada also dashed fans’ hopes about the further development of the DCU after the release of the director’s version of Justice League by Zach Snyder. He stated that this version of the film will lead nowhere. The studio gave Snyder $ 70 million because fans really wanted to see the original idea in a finished format.
