    At this point I'm wondering if Warner Bros. will even still exist in five years. Heck, in one year, the way things are going.

    How the fuck can they pass up Batman series? He's literally one of the most popular characters on the planet.

    I hope it gets picked up by someone else and becomes a huge, record-breaking hit.

    I don't care what any defenders say, absolutely nothing good has or will come out of this merge. What a cluster.

    Well Beware the Batman felt more like a contractual obligation(Air it and then sweep it under the rug like it never existed)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beware_the_Batman

    There was hardly any merchandise push or promotion for it.

    OK, that's true, but WB still aired on Cartoon Network, and I think it got a fair amount of attention when it started.

    I expect them to be gone, assests auctioned to make back whatever money they can before cutting losses.
    No leaks.

    HBO MAX needs that server space to hold the Doctor Who reruns.

    WB will be around. Too much IP capital to vanish outright.



    If its the Pertwee, McCoy and Davison runs--yes, save as much server space needed for those seasons! :)

    I've seen stranger things happen in business. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

    That's not what the directors said. WB took it off the servers, which are accessible remotely, so that no one has access to it. Which is to be expected considering the movie can never be released and was still a work in progress, and all work on it is supposed to have stopped. Why leave it on work servers if it's not being worked on? Whether it's completely destroyed/deleted we don't know, and no one has so far claimed that. I wouldn't be surprised if they deleted all existing copies entirely eventually but that's not what is being said now.

    So far WBD has lost $5.5B in valuation trying to save $3B.

    Can you elaborate ? Very curious to see your rationale. I was wondering if the superhero genre was starting to fizzle and I’d be interested in hearing your pov.

    Of course we are to be outraged. WB is mishandling a precious IP so that causes a great deal of emotional reactions, including rage.

    Now, do I agree with it? Nope. My life, strangely, continues on. But, the anger and outrage comes from a deeper place than logic and that is one of personal values. People who value either DC, or the characters, feel they have been wronged and that a boundary has been crossed in WB's treatment of the project. It's not logical and it's not something that I agree with but yes I see the coming outrage.

    Well, that makes a measure of sense.

    And another way to look at it -- stock price for WB-Discovery went from on $24.88 April 14 to currently $12.86 (Tuesday Aug 23 @ 12pm CST). It started on April 8 at $24.47.

    Let's see howthis post ages, next week as well as when/if Flash is released or officially unreleased.

    The new, anti-DCEU narrative is that the cancellation and/or deletion of Batgirl is the ultimate crime and a loss of some potentially masterwork to send the franchise into some golden era, therefore the DCEU is "doomed" and "deserves" such a fate. Nevermind the fact none of the film's social media boosters have seen a single frame of this film....

    Which is why it is the greatest, obviously. We have no evidence to the contrary ;)
