One week after the news that Disney bought Marvel, we find out that Warner Bros. is taking over the reins at DC Comics. The comics publisher will report directly to Warner Pictures. Said former Warner Premiere prez and now president of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson:

“The founding of DC Entertainment fully recognizes our desire to provide both the DC properties and fans the type of content that is only possible through a concerted cross-company, multi-platform effort. DC Entertainment will help us to formally take the great working relationships between DC Comics and various Warner Bros. businesses to the next level in order to maximize every opportunity to bring DC’s unrivalled collection of titles and characters to life."

There you have it. Both major comics publishers purchased by Hollywood conglomerates. Comic lovers pause waiting to see how it all plays out. Comic characters in theme parks? More comic-based movies? What of the monthly magazines and the mythos therein?
