Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara has delivered a rather telling statement about Warner Bros.' plans to capitalize on DC Comics' properties for films. The CEO spoke at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference last week and discussed the future of DC Comics films, as well as possibly confirming the title of Man of Steel 2 as Batman vs. Superman. Check out the highlights:
On the 12 to 14 films WB releases annually: "I think the basis, foundation of those 12 to 14 pictures are going to be coming from DC Entertainment."
On Man of Steel 2 and other plans: "We have Batman vs. Superman coming out in 2015, but there are going to be in the coming months a lot of announcements regarding the future movie, television, games and consumer product pieces that are going to be coming from DC... DC really does touch a lot of parts of our business and is an important part of the strategy in how we are going to grow going forward."
