Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and a whole host of iconic heroes are packing up their capes and tights and making the move to La, la land. After 70 + years, DC Comics has decided to close up their offices here in New York City and move to Hollywood.
It appears that Time Warner, the parent company to DC Comics, wants to keep their comic division close to their entertainment division, folding them all under one cape, so to speak. The move to set up DC on the Warner Bros lot is expected to bring a more cohesive partnership that will "better leverage" the comic book characters with their entertainment and gaming divisions.
Rumor has it that Time Warner is not pleased to be performing behind Disney/Marvel, with movie properties like The Man of Steel taking in $291 million, while Iron Man 3 took in $409 million and The Dark Knight Rises taking in $448 million compared to Marvel's The Avengers taking in $623 million domestically, and believe that the merger will help WB/DC stay on the same page and work more seamlessly.
DC Comics is expected to be fully vacated from it's NYC digs by 2015, and it's not clear how many of the 100 staffers will be making the move as well.
