Warner Bros. Will Announce New DC Comics Movie Soon; Could It Be JUSTICE LEAGUE?
The NY Times has published a new article in which they interviewed Kevin Tsujihara. He's the current CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment. Late last year, Tsujihara was named the successor to Barry Meyer as CEO and officially took the reins at the beginning of March. In the Times article, Tsujihara reveals that Warner Bros. will soon be announcing a new film series based on a DC Comics property. Brooks Barnes, the author of the piece, follows with an interesting statement regarding Justice League, which you can read in the quote below. I would caution that Barnes' Justice League comment might just be speculation. Though, he could have been privy to that information while interviewing Tsujihara.
Kevin Tsujihara is the current CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment and in a recent New York Times article he said a a film series based on DC Comics will be announced in the near future.
As for DC Entertainment, cross-studio collaboration to make better use of its comic book characters appears to have accelerated considerably since Mr. Tsujihara took over, in part because he eliminated some management layers. (He has not named a chief operating officer and did not replace Mr. Rosenblum and Mr. Robinov, choosing instead to divide up their duties and assume some himself.) Two new television shows are coming to the CW and Fox, including one based on the Flash and another on a young Batman, and a film series will be announced in the near future, Mr. Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a “Justice League” movie.
Underscoring his aggressive approach to the DC Comics universe, Mr. Tsujihara and Dan Fellman, Warner’s domestic film distribution chief, recently moved the studio’s untitled Batman-Superman movie — a hotly anticipated follow-up to last year’s “Man of Steel” — to a release date in May 2016 previously claimed by Marvel for one of its own films. It created an industry dust-up, and Marvel retaliated with a date change of its own. But the move sent a blunt message: Warner takes a back seat to no one. - nytimes.com
