Warner CEO confirms DC Cinematic Universe expansion

DC We Can Be Heroes

Back in April, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group Jeff Robinov revealed that Man of Steel was the start of a new DC Cinematic Universe. This was, of course, confirmed by the announcement of the Batman/Superman film announced at SDCC this year. Now Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara (via ComicBook.com) has confirmed that there will be cinematic “growth in DC Comics.”

Speaking of the 12 to 14 pictures that Warner Bros. will release each year, he said “I think the basis, foundation of those 12 to 14 pictures are going to be coming from DC Entertainment.”

“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,” he adds. “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.”

The statement also seems to tentatively confirm the title of the next Superman/Batman film, and begins our speculation on what films might be on the horizon. They literally have the entire DCU to draw from after all.
