Producer Dan Lin, who is being eyed as the new head of DC's television and film divisions and would helm the DC Extended Universe, recently revealed he views the franchise as "the one that got away."
In an appearance on The Ankler Hot Seat podcast, Lin discussed his relationship with DC. "When I first started my producing career," he recalled.

Discovery CEO David Zaslav.
