When Warner Bros. Discovery had their earnings call, it came after some troubling news, like the sudden shelving of the Batgirl movie. In an attempt to keep investors happy however, CEO David Zaslav noted that moving forward the DC Films branch would be putting together a long term plan for content and were working toward having their own “Kevin Feige” like at Disney’s Marvel Studios.

Walter Hamada is the head of DC Films, but Warner Bros. Discovery is looking for someone to fill a role that is similar to what Kevin Feige does at Marvel. One name being considered for this position is TV producer Greg Berlanti.

In a new report from Variety, according to the trade, Berlanti “has been loudly whispered as a possibility for the role,” but no official discussions between WBD and Berlanti’s team have occurred. The producer also hasn’t asked for the job, with the trade reporting insiders think he wouldn’t be interested.

Frankly Berlanti has a lot of experience for the part, since he was one of the creators of The CW’s Arrowverse. This included shows like Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Superman & Lois. All these shows crossed-over multiple times.

Berlanti also executive produced other TV shows including Titans, Doom Patrol, Black Lightning, Stargirl, and Batwoman, plus the animated CW Seed shows including Vixen, Freedom Fighters: The Ray, Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons, and Constantine: City of Demons.

“You look at Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman — these are brands that are known everywhere in the world,” Zaslav said on the WBD investor call. “The ability to drive those all over the world with great story is a big opportunity for us. We have done a reset. We’ve restructured the business. We’re going to focus. There will be a team with a 10-year plan focusing just on DC. It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together, very effectively, with Kevin Feige at Disney. We think that we could build a long-term much stronger, sustainable growth business out of DC.”

Variety has mentioned another potential candidate for the role of director for the new Superman movie. This person is a producer named Dan Lin. Lin has produced movies like IT, The LEGO Batman Movie, Godzilla vs. Kong, and the failed Justice League movie that George Miller was preparing in 2009. Unfortunately, Lin is not interested in the role.
