The Department of Justice will be issuing a lawsuit challenging the merger of AT&T and Time Warner, which will have the unintended side effect of dropping the stock of Time Warner and Warner Bros. This lawsuit, drop in stocks, and poor box office return on Justice League will force the Warner Bros. board of directors to take a long hard look at their financial future, including the future of the DC Cinematic Universe.

This will likely cause Warners to take a good look at the future of its movies, leaning on surefire hit properties including Batman and Wonder WomanAquaman is already done filming and Shazam! seems to be a sure thing with The Rock on board, but the rest of its slate including Cyborg and Green Lantern could be shelved. 

Especially with Justice League's poor performance, the weakest debut of all the DCEU movies, Warners will have to rethink its entire movie plan.
