Warner Brothers closing down ‘Warner Premiere’, The distributor of those DC Comics direct-to-video movies

Which comes as a shock to many, The Wrap is reporting that Warner Brothers is shutting down its direct-to-video label Warner Premiere later this summer.

“Given the continuing decline in the direct-to-video film market and shifting business models in the production of digital series, the decision was made to close Warner Premiere,”

While it is unsure what DC Comics has planned for future movies in their successful line of DC Comics animated movies, they have indeed seen success with the ones they have already produced through Warner Premiere since 2007, which include the titles: Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, Watchmen: Under the Hood, Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier, Batman: Gotham Knight, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman/Batman:Apocalypse, All-Star Superman, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, Batman: Year One, Justice League: Doom, Superman vs. The Elite, and the upcoming Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – Part 1 & 2.

However, the studio did tell The Wrap that “the division will continue and complete production on its remaining film and digital series products into the fall” so its still possible that the films that had been announced starting production will indeed finish production, such as the rumored Justice League: Flashpoint, which was revealed by members of the alleged voice cast earlier this year.
