At an annual meeting on Friday, the heads over at Warner Bros. (most notably Warner Chairman and Chief Executive Jeff Bewkes) were questioned about the future of Warner Bros. The majority of the meeting discussed the succession of Bewkes, although Warner Bros. plans with their DC Comics Properties were brought up. Here's what the LA Times had to say:

Another shareholder questioned Warner Bros.' strategy with DC Comics, which has lagged behind Walt Disney Co.'s Marvel Entertainment, and criticized the studio for not doing enough to develop female characters from its library. Warner Bros.' Tsujihara acknowledged that DC Comics has not done as well as he would like but added that there is wonderful opportunity there and promised that the shareholder will be "happy and proud" down the road. DC Comics President Diane Nelson chimed in that Warner Bros. is trying to differentiate from Marvel, which will become apparent soon. As for exploiting more female characters from the DC Comics properties, Nelson said a priority is creating properties that will appeal to young girls.

Interesting. Lets see what they can do with Wonder Woman first.

themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 3:44 PM

themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 3:47 PM
I wouldn't mind Batgirl though
Brainiac13 - 6/13/2014, 3:48 PM

Any future article you find..........MBJ your man. :)

I'm gonna start writing original articles......when I get the time.
wookiefit76 - 6/13/2014, 3:49 PM
His answer almost reads like a generic "yes, but no" reply. Almost like "I don't have an answer, so I'm gonna agree with you and not really promise or tell you anything."
Brainiac13 - 6/13/2014, 3:50 PM
What Omega Said.....But I want to live forever! ;)
McNyagano - 6/13/2014, 3:52 PM
My body is ready!:D
themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 3:55 PM
Lyndsy Fonseca for Barbara Gordon/Batgirl!

//DC Comics President Diane Nelson chimed in that Warner Bros. is trying to differentiate from Marvel//

You mean like releasing your DC movies in May?
JosephKing - 6/13/2014, 3:56 PM
The most important part:

Seemingly hinting at the rumoured Wonder Woman movie, he [Tsujihara] added: "We have something we're not ready to announce."
DrAtom - 6/13/2014, 3:56 PM
Nice find!
Brainiac13 - 6/13/2014, 3:57 PM

A Teen Titans movie would be epic.....Look what YJ cartoon can still have the senior JL members for small parts just like Fury in McU.

Also I would love to see a Young Avengers movie or Runaways series.......loved reading them stories.
ProfessorRick - 6/13/2014, 3:59 PM
I wouldn't mind a Batgirl movie, or even a Zatanna film.
SunfireUrA55 - 6/13/2014, 4:00 PM
Yeah how about bring back Cassie Cain back as Batgirl and not throw her into the curb because she was overshadowing BAts?

How about MORE ASIAN MALE SUPERHEROES that doesn't know martial arts!!! Just a regular guy who has that very difficult to do?
Sipprelle - 6/13/2014, 4:00 PM
Again, more backing for Nikki's sources to be correct.
CherryBomb - 6/13/2014, 4:01 PM
We certainly do need more female characters in these CBM's. More powerful ones too.
It's why I hope Marvel will finally introduce Carol!
DrunkenNukem - 6/13/2014, 4:03 PM
Lets see how this goes...
themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 4:04 PM
Lyndsy Fonseca for both!
shabat - 6/13/2014, 4:04 PM
@midknightking. I like your style.

I wouldn't mind a Supergirl movie, outside of an obvious Wonder Woman movie.
Enphlieuwince - 6/13/2014, 4:05 PM
Good answer KT.
CommanderShepard - 6/13/2014, 4:05 PM

Lets get this party started. As long as the movie is good, my butt will be in the theater seat!
Klone - 6/13/2014, 4:07 PM
If a certain screenwriter is attached to write WW I will cry :P
Lemons - 6/13/2014, 4:08 PM
Justice League Dark PLEASE!
DrAtom - 6/13/2014, 4:08 PM
WB/DC need to focus more on the JL members than on Vertigo properties. Personally i don't really care about Vertigo what i want the most is a JL movie.
Brainiac13 - 6/13/2014, 4:08 PM
Saw "Captain Marvel" on my schedule. Thought it was Ms. Danvers but a little boy walked in my office and started yelling nonsense words.

Mothchild - 6/13/2014, 4:08 PM
Birds of Prey done properly please.

Also a good reason for Beware the Batman not to get cancelled as the show features Katana and Barbara fairly strongly.

Madame Zanadu, Zatanna, Mera, are all great properties

Also hopefully the Batfleck trilogy (if there is one) will bring Batgirl/Oracle to prominence

Cassie Cain is a GREAT character. I heard she's in Hong Kong in the new 52

@ DR Doom

Nice pics but if they are positioning those characters to little girls you can believe that those stripper outfits are going bye bye.

Marvel needs to Make a Captain marvel movie already. the new comic is excellent. Marvel make it so!

Mike89 - 6/13/2014, 4:09 PM
Lets see how this goes.
MrBlackJack - 6/13/2014, 4:10 PM

I would add that to the article, but I no longer am able to edit the article.
shabat - 6/13/2014, 4:11 PM
I didn't realize that some of the holdings include HBO. Are you [frick]ing kidding me?!?! They need to get show on that business!
