Writer, director and producer David S. Goyer recently spoke to IESB, regarding the status of his comic book adaptation The Flash. In his interview, he dropped a bomb regarding the future of all DC Comics/Warner Brothers projects for this year and beyond.
“A lot of the DC movies at Warner Brothers are all on hold while the figure out, they’re going to come up with some new plan, methodology, things like that so everything has just been pressed pause on at the moment.
More on Warner Bros. comic future after the jump.
While reevaluating their comic book roster, Warner Bros. is beginning to recognize just how lucrative the superhero genre is.
It was the double header of both Iron Man and The Dark Knight coming out, so more than ever I think they’ve realized, I think DC was responsible for 15% of Warner Brother’s revenue this year, something crazy like that, so they realized that comic books, it’s become a new genre, one of the most successful genres.”
Another reason the studio needs to revamp their future plans, may have something to do with the current drama surrounding the DC adaptation of the Watchmen. Warner Bros, and 20th Century Fox have been enthralled in a battle over the distribution rights of the film since last year.
Perhaps their trying to cover their bases this time around, so history doesn’t repeat itself.
