WB's DC Entertainment

09.09.2009

Disney/Marvel looks like Warner Brothers just upped their game by creating DC Entertainment.

Here are some of the highlights from the press release, it is rather lengthy:

DC Entertainment, a separate division of WBEI, will be charged with strategically integrating the DC Comics business, brand and characters deeply into Warner Bros. Entertainment and all its content and distribution businesses. DC Entertainment, which will work with each of the Warner Bros. divisions, will also tap into the tremendous expertise the Studio has in building and sustaining franchises and prioritize DC properties as key titles and growth drivers across all of the Studio, including feature films, television, interactive entertainment, direct-to-consumer platforms and consumer products. The DC Comics publishing business will remain the cornerstone of DC Entertainment, releasing approximately 90 comic books through its various imprints and 30 graphic novels a month and continuing to build on its creative leadership in the comic book industry.

Diane Nelson is taking the place of Paul Levitz who was President and Publisher of DC Comics, as Levitz is going back to writing and contributing for DC Entertainment:

Paul Levitz, who has served as President & Publisher of DC Comics since 2002, will segue from that role to return to his roots as a writer for DC and become a contributing editor and overall consultant to DCE. This transition will take place as expeditiously as possible without disrupting DC's business operations.

In his new role, Levitz will be called upon for his deep knowledge and more than three-decade history with DC Comics, both as a comic creator and an executive. Besides serving as a writer on a number of DC Comics titles, he will be a contributing editor and consultant to DC Entertainment on projects in various media. Additionally, he will consult as needed on the transition and integration of the DC Comics organization into DC Entertainment and will utilize his unique experience, knowledge and relationships with the comics industry's creative community to help achieve DC Entertainment's goal of maximizing the value of DC properties. Further, Levitz will advise DC Entertainment on creative and rights-holder relationships, in particular regarding the legacy relationships that have been a part of DC Comics for decades.

"The founding of DC Entertainment fully recognizes our desire to provide both the DC properties and fans the type of content that is only possible through a concerted cross-company, multi-platform effort," said Nelson. "DC Entertainment will help us to formally take the great working relationships between DC Comics and various Warner Bros. businesses to the next level in order to maximize every opportunity to bring DC's unrivalled collection of titles and characters to life."

It was known that Warner Brothers was looking to restructure but it couldn't have come at a more convenient time. Looks like we will be up to our necks in comic material for a long time to come. Go here to read the entire press release, as well as the upcoming projects (All of which you guys already know about).

Extra Tidbit: Let the games begin. So who's going to come out with more solid material over time?

HA!

WB has owned DC since 1969, and NOW they might get serious about it? Frankly, if they couldn't do it in the last 40 years, they sure as shit aren't going to do it now.

Paul Levitz was a terrible president. Diane Nelson has been running Warner Premiere DVD since 2006 and they've put out some awesome original DC movies, so let's hope she brings that same excellence to her new role as president!

Hopefully this means we will be seeing more DC characters besides Batman and Superman hitting the big screen.
