David Zaslav Talks Up DC Studios' Leadership In James Gunn And Peter Safran
It's only been a few days since James Gunn and Peter Safran officially took over the creative direction of the newly-formed DC Studios, but there's at least one big supporter in their corner that is giving them high praise already, and it's the one that matters the most: David Zaslav, head of Warner Bros. Discovery.
Over the summer Zaslav said he would find leaders for DC who could create at least a 10-year plan for the comic book brand as he looked to rival the colossal success of Disney's Marvel Studios. It seemed like a daunting task at the time to assign such roles, but with Gunn and Safran in place, Zaslav says he's hopeful for the future.
"I've spent a lot of time over the past few months with James and Peter," Zaslav said this week during an investor's call (via The Hollywood Reporter). "They have a powerful vision and blueprint that will drive a more unified creative approach that will enable us to realize the full value of one of the world's most iconic franchises."
