With a new film series coming...
In an interview with the New York Times, Warner Bros. Pictures CEO Kevin Tsujihara discussed the studio's plans to further develop DC Comics' characters into live-action properties. The article says a new film series is set to be announced that should include a Justice League entry. Check out the relevant portion of the interview below:
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. (He has not named a chief operating officer and did not replace Mr. Rosenblum and Mr. Robinov, choosing instead to divide up their duties and assume some himself.) 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, Mr. Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a "Justice League" movie.
The common consensus is that the film will be announced at Comic-Con this summer.
