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.
