      This. The IP is too valuable to sell, but licensing it out to companies who wants to make comics, makes perfect sense.

      There's no reason to keep DC Comics, the profit must be miniscule, and as for 'idea factory', not only do they have near infinite amount of 'ideas' already, but they will of course have licensees sign a contract where they can use the ideas they produce for a fee.

      Marvel will do the same.

      Do any of you actually believe this shit? DC is probably WBD's most popular brand.

      The video says the opposite of what OP's saying
      >Explains that there is no way WB/Discovery would give up the DC characters
      >Only way that licensing out to other comic companies to make comics would work, is if the cost was cheap to the other comics company
      >Publishing could be in danger, but unlikely as he gave an example that the Halloween costumes for DC characters made back the money that it costs to run DC for a year

        I more or less concur with Perch, the only issue I question is whether WB Discovery really has such unrealistic expectations when it comes to licensing out DC's publishing operations, and would be unreasonable to negotiating a price that would work for the comic industry. In another video he gave an estimate of 30 million up front for the rights, plus 50% of the profits. I don't see why they would need to insist on a price and fees comparable to what they get from industries with far more money such as toys, video games, t-shirts, etc. You think that in a situation where they no longer wish to deal with the hassle of doing things in house they'd be willing to adjust the price to match the industry they're trying to license it for.

        Superman hasn't consistently had a title in the top 50 for years, and Wonder Woman doesn't even have an on-going comic, and neither does Green Lantern.

          Of those titles, the only consistent top 10 seller is Spider-man, and even then, he was only back in the top 10 because Nick Spencer was teasing ending OMD. Now that Marvel has officially stated that Spidey will be in limbo forever he's going to drop out of the top 10 again.

          X-men are spinning their wheels, and Thor is a yo yo character that's doing great now, but he isn't a consistent top 10 seller year over year. Iron Man has never ever been a big comic seller and he is basically treated as an easy job at Marvel because no one buys his book and no one at editorial gives a fuck about him.

          But really all of this is irrelevant because the comic sides of Marvel and DC both solely exist now as IP farms for the movies. You are downright retarded if you think Disney wouldn't at least have some interest in adding the fucking Justice League to their catalog of rights. I guaranfuckingtee Kevin Feige has a contingency for it and jerks himself raw over the notion of getting to add Batman to the MCU. This is also probably why Discovery Warner wouldn't sell DC, they know how valuable those IPs are.

            They're not worth shit bro. Most of their IP:s are a decade away from entering the public domain to begin with. That's not even enough time to establish these characters.

            And when it comes to the costs of production, marketing, etc. DC has been a financial burden. Why do you think Warner Bros were so deep in debt before being bought out? It's because DC was a money sink and a loss because Warner thought their IP:s could capture the grandeur of the MCU.

            It's time to wake up and smell the sheets. DC is never going to be as recognizable as Marvel.

            And why would Disney want to invest in something inferior when they have an entire Universe of characters more popular than DC?

              Warner was/is a massive company and DC was worth peanuts compared to the rest of the company. You are out of your fucking mind if you seriously think their debt was from DC.

              Disney's already burnt through all the recognizable marvel main stays and has been scraping the barrel for a while. They had Captain fucking Carter as one of their major cameos in Dr Strange 2 for fucks sake.

              But yeah dude, Echo, Ironheart, and Captain Carter are so much more valuable than fucking Superman and BATMAN.

              WB was $53 BILLION in gross debt, which is why they had to crawl do Discovery+ and ask for them to take over the reigns. This debt was mainly accumulated by going all in on streaming, much like Netflix took on $20 billion in loans to make content.

              DC Comics is not even a blip on their debt radar, on the other hand it's also worthless as it doesn't generate any profit.

      The Dark Knight Rises: 516mil
      Harry Potter and the Sorceror's stone: 514mil
      Twister: 501mil
      HP and the deathly hallows 2: 440mil
      Matrix Reloaded: 428mil
      Wonder woman: 421mil
      HP Goblet of fire: 414mil
      HP Chamber of secrets: 412mil
      HP Order of the Phoenix: 389
      Batman Forever: 387mil
      American Sniper: 380mil
      The Batman: 369mil
      HP Half Blood Prince: 369mil
      HP Prisoner of Azkaban: 368mil
      BvS Dawn of justice: 350mil
      The Hobbit unexpected Journey: 348mil
      Suicide Squad: 344mil
      HP and the Deathly Hallows 1: 343mil
      Inception: 340mil

      So 5 Batman movies (1 co-starring Superman), All 8 mainline harry potter movies, 2 non-batman super movies, and then 3 original property movies, 2 other movies from established series
      14/20 of these movies came out over a decade ago.
      Compare them to Disney
      6 MCU movies in the top 20, 4 star wars movies, 2 POTC movies, 4 animated sequels, 1 animated original, 2 live action remakes, 1 live action original (Sixth Sense).
      14/20 are from the last decade (7 in the last 5 years), and the barrier to get in the top 20 is 460mil, 130mil more than WB

      Basically if they don't find something Harry Potter tier they are kinda fucked

    Having actually watched the video, which either you didn't or did but posted this anyway to troll people, Perch says it probably won't happen. They won't sell DC because Batman makes too much money, and they won't shut down the comics division and license it out because no other publisher would be willing to pay the money it would cost because due to how small the comic book industry is now they wouldn't make a profit. Not to mention DC comics doesn't cost much money to keep functioning, so it's not even worth cutting for budget reasons from Discovery's perspective.
