WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara has revealed that a new movie franchise based in the world of DC Comics will be announced very soon. He did not, however, reveal what the title is. Though, it is highly speculated that it will include the new Justice League movie.
This news comes from a New York Times story on the new CEO. Author of the piece, Brooks Barnes, makes an interesting statement after the news of a new DC Comics franchise is revealed to him, with some speculating that he may have been privy to further information during the interview.
This is an excerpt from the article:
"As for DC Entertainment, cross-studio collaboration to make better use of its comic book characters appears to have accelerated considerably since Mr. Tsujihara took over, in part because he eliminated some management layers. Two new television shows are coming to the CW and Fox, including one based on the Flash and another on a young Batman, and a film series will be announced in the near future, Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a Justice League movie.
Underscoring his aggressive approach to the DC Comics universe, Tsujihara and Dan Fellman, Warner's domestic film distribution chief, recently moved the studio's untitled Batman Vs. Superman movie - a hotly anticipated follow-up to last year's Man of Steel - to a release date in May 2016 previously claimed by Marvel for one of its own films. It created an industry dust-up, and Marvel retaliated with a date change of its own. But the move sent a blunt message: Warner takes a back seat to no one."
Its interesting to note that he calls Justice League just one part of a new DC Comics series. This probably means that other DC Comics movie titles will be announced all at once. This may include one starring Dwayne Johnson, which could be the long rumored Lobo or a reboot of Green Lantern featuring John Stewart.
