Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is currently promoting his latest movie, Ant-Man and The Wasp. Screen Rant caught up with him and asked for advice on how he would get the DC Extended Universe “back on track”. Feige was hesitant to give a reply, but did offer an example that he thinks everyone should follow.
“They’re great characters, they’re good comics, they’ve got great history,” Feige said about DC. “I’m not shy about saying, Richard Donner’s Superman I still think is the paradigm by which we all still should follow. It’s all there.”
Richard Donner is the director of the first Christopher Reeve Superman movie. It’s a classic that according to Feige, everyone making superhero movies should be taking inspiration from. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has said in multiple interviews that she was influenced by Donner’s Superman as well.
Earlier this month the Avengers: Infinity War writers offered their own advice how on they’d “fix” the DCEU. They said that Warner Bros. should focus on the less popular characters and used a Justice League quote to say they should “save one” hero at a time.
