Why do movies leave DC universe? Doesn’t DC own the content? Where is it going?

Movies rotate in and out because WB licenses it to other services, presumable to maximize their income.


I suspect, and I’m making this up completely, it also gives us the opportunity to hype stuff coming back. Like I have no interest at all in watching, like, Batman vs Dracula, but if you tell me I can’t, and then in six months say OKAY you can watch it, I’ll be so excited! I possess the psychology of a toddler, is what I’m saying.


Some might say the psychology of a Riddler, @biff_pow. :wink:

@ajm0605.44394, these folks have the right of it. DC Is owned by Warner Bros., which has distribution and exhibition licensing agreements across many outlets. Quite a few of these agreements existed before the launch of DC Universe, which is just another source of exhibition for these properties.

It’s not a very interesting topic if you’re not fascinated by intellectual rights, ownership, etc., but it is the reason we do not have everything DC forever. But we did recently get a big “win” by increasing our comics from a library of 2,500 to 20,000+, so please keep letting us know what you’d like to see!


As long as they never take comics off, I’m good. I spend about 90% of my time with the service with the books.


@lbsaint14 Zuda comics are leaving, but those are only a handful of small series that almost no one cares about
