Administrators Herbert Playz Posted November 11, 2022 Administrators Share Posted November 11, 2022 I think this is fantastic news for Warner brothers. Firstly its going to be great for future content. Having one cohesive vision that encompasses film, animation and gaming is going to be great for fans. Secondly, many people watching the warner brothers/discovery merger closely, expect David Zaslav to eventually sell Warner Brothers in two years. By focusing on developing content that is set in huge connected universes(Game of thrones universe, DC universe) they can probably attract some premium pricing from companies that are looking to get their hands on these well known IP with huge fanbases. Amazon and Disney are the first companies that come to mind because they would have huge strategic advantages in owning the exclusive rights to host this IP. They could make their platforms must have for fans that want to access this premium content in the future. Think how popular Netflix became when they had the exclusive rights to stream Friends. They were paying huge sums of money a year for those rights. Source Herbert Playz 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
