After a week of rumors and apocalyptic speculation on the state of Warner Bros. Discovery, the company finally revealed some of its plans for the future during an investor call on Thursday. While much of what CEO David Zaslav had to say was far from the doom and gloom projected by many, the executive’s comments on this week’s cancellation of the Batgirl movie and what the DC Universe will look like going forward have raised even more questions.

According to Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery is aiming for a quality-over-quantity approach to content, which extends to the DC Universe. In response to a question about Batgirl’s cancellation, Zaslav said, “We’re going to focus very hard on quality. I said we’re not going to launch a movie until it’s ready. We’re not going to go into a movie to make a quarter and we’re not going to release a movie unless we believe in it. And that’s it. I mean, particularly with DC, where we think we want to pivot, we want to elevate, and we want to focus.”
