Speaking at the the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference (via ComicBook.com), Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed that the studio plans to shore up its slate of 12 or 13 yearly releases by utilising its ownership of DC Comics in the same way that Disney uses Marvel, which in Disney’s case means releasing 2 films a year.
“I think the basis, foundation of those 12 to 14 pictures are going to be coming from DC Entertainment,” confirmed Tsujihara.
“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.”
