This week, huge fuss broke out as Warner Bros announced major restructuring of DC Comics. It has essentially folded up DC Comics and created DC Entertainment (really original guys). What this really means is that the new DC Entertainment will be integrating the DC Comics brand more tightly with the studio.
What is alarming to fans is that Paul Levitz, president of DC Comics since 2002 will no longer be the president. He is staying on as a writer and consultant. How committed and how much influence he would still have worries alot of people. Paul had been the driving force for DC in the past and had made sure of the success it enjoyed. This seems to be in sharp contrast to last week’s news on the Disney-Marvel buyout in which Marvel’s president was kept and promised autonomy.
The new president for DC Entertainment would be Diane Nelson, former president of Warner Premier. Dianne reports to Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Picture Group.
