Movie and comic book fans alike may be devastated to hear that the DC Extend Universe is ending.

According to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, DC will continue to create standalone films, however, the DC Extended Universe as a whole will soon no longer exist. Tsujihara told the Los Angeles Times, “The upcoming slate, with Shazam, Joker, Wonder Woman 1984, and Birds of Prey, feels like we’re on the right track. We have the right people in the right jobs working on it. The universe isn’t as connected as we thought it was going to be five years ago.”

Putting an end to the Extended Universe may come as no surprise to some, considering DC is in direct competition with Marvel Studios, who has seen a very successful 10 years with its Marvel Cinematic Universe.

DC’s attempt failed with Justice League and Batman V. Superman, however found great success with Wonder Woman and the recent Aquaman standalone films. “You’re seeing much more focus on individual experiences around individual characters,” said Tsujihara. “That’s not to say we won’t at some point come back to that notion of a more connected universe. But it feels like that’s the right strategy for us right now.”
