Want more content from the world of DC Comics? Ask and you shall receive as Kevin Tsujihara, the CEO of Warner Bros., revealed during the Credit Suisse Technology, Media & Telecom Conference today that the studio is investing more in several of their mega-franchises, including the world of DC.
“What is becoming more and more important is really these big franchises. If you look at what’s happening with the quality of the television product, the movies that are breaking through are the big franchises”
In The Wrap’s report, they reveal that the CEO hinted that there might be a specific DC Comics product, as he was discussing the acquisition of Machinima that we recently heard about.
“He said the studio’s been working on that line of business, hinting at a potential dedicated DC Comics product to capitalize on its “rabid” fan base.”
Is there a possibility for a specific streaming service for consumers? During the Q&A, the CEO hinted that they are working on getting content to their consumers, but earlier.
“We’re working with them to create a new window. We have to offer consumers more choices earlier.”
Tsujihara also spoke about investing more in television and brought up HBO and Turner, while mentioning the success of Westworld which has been renewed for a second season.
“The biggest way for Warner Bros. to move the needle was if we created a hit show for Turner or HBO. I’m really excited about the opportunity we potentially have with [HBO series] ‘Westworld.’”
