Warner Bros. Launches DC Entertainment

The Superheroes of DC Comics

In the wake of Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, Warner Bros. needed to do something and do something they have. Introducing DC Entertainment, a new standalone business that focuses on everything in the DC universe (movies, video games, TV shows, and a little something called comic books). Diane Nelson was named president of DC Entertainment, coming from similar duties at Warner’s direct-to-DVD division. She’s also been the lady running the Harry Potter franchise, so she knows a little something about making blockbuster entertainment.

Expect to see a lot more synergy between the comics, games and movies, as Warner Bros. looks to compete with the new comic-infused Disney. On the slate for Warner’s is movie Green Lantern, the TV show Human Target, the massively multiplayer game DC Universe Online and quite a few other unannounced games, like the rumored Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe 2. Maybe we’re expecting too much from them, but after the awesomeness that is Batman: Arkham Asylum, maybe we’re entitled to!
