Rumors That Disney Could Buy DC Comics After Publisher Left The Company

For you comic book fans out there, you may already know that publisher for DC Comics, Dan Didio, has departed from the company. This now leaves Jim Lee (the man behind some of DC Comics most recent and critical failings) as the sole publisher of the company and some things may not look as good as people think, this is because Disney may become the most powerful comic book publisher of all time by purchasing their opposition.

Rumor has it that AT&T, the parent company of WarnerMedia, which essentially owns DC Comics, was not happy with the last reboot of the DC Universe and Dan Didio as the publisher.

Although, luckily, this may not be the case as Didio has recently released a video of him giving a speech at the old DC Comics offices in the year of 2015.

Overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support and it leaves me at a loss for words (first time for everything). So, instead, I’ll turn to what was said nearly five years ago on April 10, 2015 to best sum up how I feel. Love to you all

Didio is a bit emotional at the moment about his departure from the company, and hasn’t said much else than releasing this video. At the end, Didio exclaims that he believes DC Comics will live on and will keep the title as one of the big two for years to come.

Before Didio left, he came up with a new reboot for the DC Universe called: The 5G Timeline (G standing for Generations). Yet, due to his departure from the company, it is thought that this will be scrapped and that AT&T and WarnerMedia will be going in a brand new direction, if they choose not to sell the comic book publication.

Although DC Comics hasn’t been fairing quite well in the movie department, it is still considered one of the big two (the other being Marvel Comics) of comic book publications, and holds some of the most iconic characters of all time. But it seems everyday, the publication and the people over at Warner Bros. are losing faith in their characters (an example being how they think Superman is irrelevant in the world today) and their capabilities.

I guess we will have to wait and see what DC Comics and AT&T will do in the future, although it is unlikely that they will sell the comic book publication, there is a potential chance.
