DC Movie Producer Admits No Backup Plan For Bad Projects

It's pretty much full steam ahead over there.

In a long interview with The Hollywood Reporter, historic movie producer Charles Roven remarked about his time producing Warner Bros. DC films. Roven had a successful 2016 producing three pictures that together have earned more than $2 billion at the box office: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warcraft: The Beginning and Suicide Squad. He admitted to a large flaw in Warner Bros' plan for the DC movies.

The studio made me the producer of all the DC movies, and they announced eight. When we finished the [timetable], we looked at each other and said, "This is incredibly ambitious, but we haven't taken into consideration if something goes wrong." We also hadn't decided where we were going to shoot those movies. As difficult as it was for me to commute from Toronto to London to Italy, it became really clear I couldn't do the job that I do as a producer [with Aquaman likely to shoot in Australia]. I'm for sure producing the sequels of the movies that I have made.

There's no contingency plan set in place if any of the movies run into issues. This news comes out as The Flash has had two directors leave in 2016. DC was very ambitious when the announced their future movie plans, 10 movies in 5 years. The list is below.

  • "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
  • "Suicide Squad," directed by David Ayer (2016)
  • "Wonder Woman," starring Gal Gadot (2017)
  • "Justice League Part One," directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
  • "The Flash," starring Ezra Miller (2018)
  • "Aquaman," starring Jason Momoa (2018)
  • "Shazam" (2019)"Justice League Part Two," directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
  • "Cyborg," starring Ray Fisher (2020)
  • "Green Lantern" (2020)
