    Not DC but the director of the new "Evil Dead" movie made for HBO Max has been hinting that it's going to be shelved.

    Safe to assume that all Max specific movies are goners regardless of how close to completion they are. Even the ones already on the service are in trouble.

    I'm pretty sure we can toss the current release dates for Shazam, Aquaman and Flash in the bin.

    Movies with male leads: "We think we can make them even better."
    Movie with female lead: "We're not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it."

    Mixed messsages much?

    Massive reshoots totally worked out for justice league theatrical! Obviously they decided to try it again.

    So, as part of Zaslav's "strategic priorities" for the company, he says...

    "“We intend to maximize the value of that content through a broad distribution model that includes theatrical, streaming, linear cable, free-to-air, gaming, consumer products and experiences, and more, everywhere in the world,” he said."

    So certain platforms are not going up in a puff of smoke as some argued, but the elimination of certain productions is clearly the way to streamline WB's content to something one will assume is more palatable to a larger audience. Sound if that is the plan. Certain viewers may not like it, but their interest is not keeping a company alive.

    Zaslav believes women are only interested in reality shows.

    I agree it is sound but won't be good enough.
    Heh...any one else want popcorn? This is hilarious.

    For the good of the entertainment industry, we really really need Zaslav to fail miserably here. Success would mean nothing less than the death of streaming as we know it.

    Found someone live tweeting the whole call with photos

    https://twitter.com/azalben/status/1555286365297938433?t=cE8R7PQ9hPvq25ikDNlEEw&s=19

    Uh huh

    That's no surprise considering the last few days

    Q&A's
    Applauding an exec for being willing to fight with talent?

    Bunch of comments like this, stressing the importance of HBO content, which sounds like they won't be killing HBO scripted material which is good. It was a crazy idea but after all the Max kills anything was possible.

    And that's the call. Click the twitter feed for more I just pulled out interesting stuff to me from the live tweets.

    Still not a lot of info about what existing projects are moving forward (other than Game of Thrones) and which are dead.

    He did basically say that there will be reshoots. Maybe miller is done and will be edited out...

    Unless I've missed something, it looks like my fears about Grace Randolph's doomsaying being accurate were thankfully unfounded, at least for the foreseeable future.

    He's going to edit out the star who's in practically every scene but won't even dump Batgirl on streaming to make what money it can? This guy...

    What is this, the 1960s? Fandoms don't skew female? Does he know anything about the history of women and fandoms?

    How about the fact that HBO is the home of Sex And The City, the ultimate female skewing show...
