It's evident that the DC Extended Universe is about to embrace a new era after Warner Bros. Discovery boss David Zaslav made it clear that the franchise will be undergoing major creative changes in an effort to appease its fanbase. As it stands, there's still a lot of mystery surrounding Zaslav's reported "10-year plan" for the DCEU but it looks like it will no longer involve the key people who were in charge before the WB Discovery merger took place.

According to a report from ComicBook, DC Films President Walter Hamada could be on his way out of the franchise after Black Adam. Details regarding his plans weren't disclosed but it is believed that Batgirl's cancelation might have planted the seeds for his decision to leave the DCEU.

We all know for a fact that Hamada hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with fans of the DCEU and many believe he's one of the people to be blamed for the franchise not being able to reach its full potential. However, WB Discovery has yet to confirm Hamada's rumored departure.

It's still a little too early to tell if Zaslav will actually be able to make good on his promises for the franchise but one can hope that Warner Bros. Discovery is truly committed to redeeming the DCEU and making it the powerhouse it was always meant to be. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how everything plays out.

Meanwhile, DC's next film Black Adam is slated for release on October 21, 2022.
