Things We Saw Today: DC Wants Dan Lin to Be Their Kevin Feige

Producer Dan Lin attends the world premiere of "Easter Sunday" on August 2, 2022 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

DC Entertainment may be getting their own Kevin Feige in producer Dan Lin (Aladdin, The Lego Movie, It), who is in talks to take over as DC chief at Warner Bros. Discovery. As WBD restructures its various properties, CEO David Zaslav is seeking to consolidate DC’s offerings under a unified 10 year plan similar to what Kevin Feige has done for Marvel and Disney.

While Feige has created the most successful film franchise of all time with the Marvel cinematic universe, DC has been without a similar guiding force. Zack Snyder originally took control of DC’s offerings, starting with 2013’s Man of Steel, but his Sad God saga quickly fell apart after creative differences, poor reviews, and Joss Whedon’s disastrous handling of 2017’s Justice League. Since then, DC has had its successes and its failures, but there hasn’t been a coherent unifying strategy like there has been with the MCU.
