Shares

Jeff Bewkes who’s the CEO and Chairman of Warner Bros., spoke recently at Tuesday’s UBS Global Media and Communications Conference about the recent disappointment in 2015’s year of box office receipts, he also talked about the upcoming 2016 slate, which includes Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and his hopes that this will be the start of a turn around.

“Next year we’re going to be shifting more to the very numerous number of big franchise film releases.”

He did mention also how Wonder Woman and her solo film will give the Female Audience someone to look up too:

“We think this could bring an under-represented female audience to this genre that frankly has not been served well in the past and that could be exciting,”

Wonder Woman is currently shooting in London, for a 2017 release.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
