Mashable is reporting that The Snyders (Zack and Deborah) are no longer going to be the architects of the DCEU, moving forward. While they do still have an important role to play in several of the upcoming DCEU films, that role will not be supervisory, as that torch seems to have officially either been passed to taken away and given to a new group, according to the post:
“the Snyders will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point,” with Whedon and Geoff Johns taking over as the “architects.”
Given the success of Wonder Woman and Whedon’s success helping craft Phase One of the MCU, this actually makes a lot of sense. Still, it will be interesting to see how the tone continues to shift moving forward. Don’t be surprised if Aquaman is the last movie that gets filmed before Flash: Flashpoint comes out with a soft reboot on the entire universe.
