Warner Bros. Creates DC Entertainment
Media powerhouse Warner Brothers has created a new division, called DC Entertainment, Inc., “a new company founded to fully realize the power and value of the DC Comics brand and characters across all media and platforms.” Barry Meyer, Warner Chairman & CEO, states that “DC Comics and its super hero characters are truly touchstones of popular culture, and the formation of DC Entertainment is a major step in our company’s efforts to realize the full potential of this incredible wellspring of creative properties.”
The DC Comics publishing business will remain the primary focus of DC Entertainment, which releases approximately 90 comic books and 30 graphic novels a month. New DC Entertainment director Diane Nelson, previously President of Warner Premiere, will continue to oversee the franchise management of the Harry Potter property, which she has done since 2000, and also continue to represent the Studio’s interests with the author of the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling.
