Warner Bros. and DCThe movie franchise is currently following a different course with more emphasis on solo movies, and it seems that Jim Lee will be the man who will oversee his projects in the future.

To say that the DCEU had a difficult start would be to fall short. While the films performed well in the box office department, most of them were critically divisive. It didn't help that production problems were made public, specifically those that were plagued League of Justice. In the midst of all that, Warner Bros was able to make some necessary adjustments to ensure that they have a sustainable board in the future that implies deviating from interconnectivity. In contrast, solo projects are prioritized with a large number of them in their portfolio. As the study continues to work on its alignment, it seems that Lee would be the man who would lead them to this new era of DC movies.
In light of Ezra Miller's amazing Flash cameo at the crossroads of The CW & # 39; s Crisis on Infinite Earths, where he met his counterpart on the small screen played by Grant Gustin, Arrowverse executive producer Marc was asked Guggenheim, how can you achieve such a feat. In an interview with Variety, the showrunner was asked if the events of the television special mean that the Ezra Flash movie no longer exists considering that going through the multiverse was to ensure that only one version of each hero exists. Guggenheim declined to comment, and instead directed inquiries to the study and, surprisingly, to Lee. "I will leave that question to Warner Bros. and DC. They have a wonderful vision not only for Ezra’s Flash, but also for the entire DC universe. Jim Lee is the man to talk to." he said.
While Guggenheim did not directly say that Lee is creatively in charge of the DC movie franchise, his response implies that he has knowledge of how Warner Bros. plans to address his film universe in the future. As a comic book editor, Lee began as a Marvel comic artist in 1987, but is known primarily for his work in DC. There, along with Geoff Johns, he released "The New 52" which relaunched 52 new stories with no. 1 problems, essentially restarting the printing universe for the brand. Currently, Lee is the creative director of DC Comics, by coincidence, a position that Johns previously held before resigning in 2018. However, it is worth noting that Walter Hamada remains the president of the film production of DC, which It gives authority over what kind of projects have a green light.
That said, Hamada's position does not mean there is no place for Lee, since they can fulfill different roles in the organization. As Hamada oversees the commercial side of things, acting as a traditional producer, Lee can focus on the creative side of operations. While Marvel Studios has Kevin Feige juggling both roles for MCU, Warner Bros. and DC You can structure your executive line in a way that works best for them.
