Warner Bros. says DC movies will have humor, plus directors will coordinate with each other

justiceleagueMarvel Studios has Kevin Feige as the main man shaping up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but who does Warner Bros. have for its DC Cinematic Universe? One would think it would be WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara, since he was an important factor in pushing WB to create their own DC Cinematic Universe. However, it looks like there’s another important person behind the scenes. Greg Silverman, WB’s President of Creative Development & Worldwide Production, chatted with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about WB’s plan for its future DC movies.Silverman talked about how WB plans on having the different DC movies connect with each other:

“We have a great strategy for the DC films, which is to take these beloved characters and put them in the hands of master filmmakers and make sure they all coordinate with each other. You’ll see the difference when you see Batman v. Superman, Suicide Squad, Justice League and all the things that we are working on.”

He also talked about why the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer was very dark. For some worrying that DC is too focused on making it dark, he added that there will also be humor.

“There is intensity and a seriousness of purpose to some of these characters. The filmmakers who are tackling these properties are making great movies about superheroes; they aren’t making superhero movies. When you’re trying to make a good movie, you tackle interesting philosophies and character development. There’s also humor, which is an important part.”

Silverman then talked about why they hired Patty Jenkins to direct Wonder Woman after Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) left due to creative differences:

“We had a very intensive process looking at everybody. Patty and Michelle were really the ones who came to the forefront the first go-round, so when things didn’t work out with Michelle, we all knew we had someone great who had expressed interest before. She came back and is doing a great job. But it was never about the best female director. She has demonstrated doing amazing work with female characters, such as in Monster.”
