Hmmm. Not sure how reliable Mashable is with these things.
Multiple sources with knowledge of Warner Bros.’ plans say that as the DC Extended Universe moves forward, the Snyders will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point.
Indeed, Zack and Deborah will be getting respective directing and producing credits on Justice League — they oversaw the bulk of production after all — and it’s still possible that they’ll carry executive producer or other types of credits for future DC films. But that involvement will be at a distance, multiple sources say, and for the time being the two are spending time with family while figuring out their next move, which is understood to include Warner Bros. films not within the DCEU.
Another person whose involvement is now in question: David Ayer, the Suicide Squad helmer, who is still listed as the director of the Harley Quinn-led spinoff Gotham City Sirens. That film was not featured in Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con sizzle reel of nine upcoming DC movies last weekend, and sources say Ayer won’t ultimately be part of their plans.
But there are other signs that he’s moving on: Ayer seemed to signal his discontent with his WB/DC experience at >his Comic-Con panel on Thursday for Bright, the fantasy buddy-cop film that Netflix gave him $90 million to make.
“I don’t think people realize the situation filmmakers face,” he said, stressing that Netflix didn’t intervene in his process — they just let him run with it. “[Bright] isn’t like, some bullshit standard issue studio PG-13 movie. I was able to do some real shit here,” said Ayer, who has directed exactly one PG-13 movie in his career: Suicide Squad.
