Today’s news blows my mind and if you are a gamer, comic book fan, or just someone who loves to fangirl, prepare yourself for this one.
AT&T announced today that their parent company WarnerMedia will merge with Discovery to create one large company. Yes, the very same Discovery that brought you over 50 billion episodes of American Chopper. If the merger is approved, Discovery CEO will run the combine business. The idea will be to merge HBO Max and Discovery+ into one large streaming service.
And that is where I thought the deal ends, however, that is not the cast. Other parts of this deal include…
WB Games/Interactive. But not the entire company. The gaming company with WB will have a few titles stay with the old company and some properties switch to the new company.
But the biggest property of all is DC Comics which will be part of this new company.
This will be interesting to see what happens over the next year. The timeframe is stated that streaming service will be launched mid 2022.
We will have more information as it becomes available.
