Joker director Todd Phillips will become DC Comics’ Kevin Feige following Warner Bros. Discovery’s entry into the DCEU.
As revealed The Hollywood Reporter exclusively, the new CEO of Warner Bros Discovery, David Zaslavis already preparing changes for the DC Extended Universe. Apparently, the executive has asked the director of joker, Todd Phillipswho is in charge of the films of DC Comics more regularly. David Zaslav wants the filmmaker primarily as an adviser, a kind of Kevin Feig in Marvel Studios.
Both David Zaslav and Todd Phillips have reportedly become close friends and already have a good working relationship. However, although the backdrop of DC Comics is suggestive, the filmmaker is currently focusing on the franchise of joker. The sequel is ahead of the DC Comics universe. Currently, Warner Bros. Pictures He doesn’t have a single voice overseeing everything the DC Extended Universe does. He doesn’t have a figure like President Kevin Feige in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s also not clear that Todd Phillips could play a similar role.
His movie is the biggest hit in the studio’s history.
If we look at it from the economic perspective and media acceptance, joker is the biggest success for DC Comics in the entire history of Warner Bros. Pictures. It doesn’t matter if you like it or find it wonderful. His success is an objective reality, it is beyond opinion. For Todd Phillips it was also his greatest success, and that is behind the saga of Hangover in Las Vegas Y A star has been born. However, we insist, we do not know if he has the ability to manage the entire DCEU in true Kevin Feige style.
For now, Joker 2 is in development. We will see if Todd Phillips finally takes the chair of chief consultant, creative leader or Kevin Feige of DC Comics. Honestly, there are better options, much better. Especially, options that know the world of comics extensively and have not despised it on other occasions. There is time, so let’s hope he doesn’t end up accepting the proposal.
