Last week, Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer reportedly said that DC Entertainment was going to announce its superhero line-up in about a month, but DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson told Comic Book Resources that Meyer was misquoted.
“First, Mr Meyer, by his own admission, was misquoted, so were not going to be making that announcement in the next month, but we will be discussing a lot of our content plans before the end of the year,” she said. “It wont necessarily be exhaustive, and it will not be limited to a theatrical slate, but at the same time that weve been looking carefully at the organization, everyones been working very hard to keep the business moving in the direction we want everyone in particular being Geoff Johns who has a lot of great stuff with our divisions. So, you will hear more about that before the end of the year.”
In a separate interview with IGN, Nelson was asked about the comparisons with Marvel Studios’ strategy.
“People make an assumption that we’re going to mirror Marvel’s strategy, for example with Avengers,” Nelson added. “We do have a very different attitude about how you build a content slate. And it isn’t necessarily about connecting those properties together to build into a single thing. We think we’ve got great stories and characters that will lend themselves to great standalone experiences, and that’s the way we’re focusing on it.”
So while we won’t be getting the company’s entire line-up, well still be receiving announcements about its upcoming plans before the end of the year. Stay tuned!
