Former Disney Chairman Alan Horn has revealed that he expects to be involved in DC Film projects at Warner Bros going forward.

The 2000s and early 2010s saw Warner Bros go through a period that some might argue was the studio’s modern peak. This period oversaw the development and release of the Harry Potter films, The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the start of the development of The Hobbit Trilogy. This was also when Alan Horn was the COO of Warner Bros. Sadly this was not destined to last.

Eventually, a new CEO at Warner Bros forced Alan Horn to retire from Warner Bros. Following his departure the quality of the studio’s output, including DC films, fell dramatically. Horn would end up going over to Disney where he helped oversee the Marvel Cinematic Universe and stayed with the company from 2012-2021. He retired from Disney at the end of that year but is apparently not done with the film industry.

The Disney Executive Moves Back To Warner Bros

Earlier today it was officially revealed that Alan Horn would be brought on to Warner Bros as a consultant to the studio. While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter the former Disney chairman revealed that he was expecting to be involved with DC film projects going forward:

“I think we would all agree that DC constitutes a canon of intellectual property that is extremely important. I would expect to be involved in DC.”

Here’s the synopsis for DC’s next major live-action film, Black Adam:

Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, the DCEU film stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.

Black Adam opens in theaters on October 21, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of Warner Bros’ DC film projects and Alan Horn’s involvement with them and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
