Warner-Bros.1Early yesterday morning Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. made an announcement on their website that they have formed a new company involving DC Comics. This company will be known as DC Entertainment. Warner Bros. has hired Diane Nelson to serve as President. Paul Levitz, whom many of you know as President and Publisher of DC Comics, will shift over from DC Comics to Writer, Editor, and Consultant for DC Entertainment. Here’s the gist of what this new company is about according to the press release:

“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.”

This seems like a solid move to me. Warner Bros. has always been behind any movies and television shows that deal with anything DC Comics so the quality of what is produced shouldn’t wane, but increase with the formation of DC Entertainment. This is, afterall, a company devoted to incorporating more of the DCU into Warner Bros. with Paul Levitz as a consultant. I expect we can look forward to seeing more of our favorite comic characters and stories come to the the big screen along with other forms of entertainment, such as television and video games.
