Newsbrief: Electronic Arts has opened up its once-exclusive Origin Access program to at least one other major game publisher with the addition of six games published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to the program. Typically, Origin Access only hosts games published by Electronic Arts and, in some cases, independent developers but the inclusion of six Batman games marks the first time games released by another major publisher have been brought into the fold. Origin Access is nested under EA's Origin digital game platform and grants players unlimited access to any title in Access' library for the duration of their subscription. Previously, that library of roughly 75 games was made up almost entirely of EA-published titles. But starting today, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Origins and the Lego Batman games are included in the Access library, marking the first time games from a major publisher (aside from EA) have been … [Read more...] about EA adds 6 Warner Bros. published games to Origin Access
There might be more trouble looming over the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) because Warner Bros. has apparently decided to take a very relaxed position when it comes to spinoff adaptations such as Batgirl and Nightwing. According to a new report from The Wrap earlier today, the studio is more focused on the main members of the Justice League. This includes Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Flash, Wonder Woman, and “possibly” Green Lantern. The prospect of Cyborg is also up in the air, despite being one of the core and original members. When it comes to Nightwing, director Chris McKay has already affirmed that the studio will be taking its sweet time before production is finally given the green light. Warner Bros. is also not in any hurry to find a replacement for Batgirl after director Joss Whedon decided to make an exit last week. In addition, other similar spinoff adaptations such as Lobo and Deathstroke remain in stasis as well. The DCEU has failed to match the success that the … [Read more...] about Warner Bros. Not Really Interested in Batgirl, Nightwing, and Similar Spinoffs
Justice League finally brought together some of the mightiest superheroes in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) but to little applause. The half-baked release left a lot of people disappointed, but not Warner Bros. because it was already expecting to smell failure. According to a new report from Revenge of the Fans earlier today, the upper echelon at Warner Bros. was fully aware that Justice League would receive a lukewarm reception in theaters at best. This notion was apparently set in stone way before the premiere night but the entertainment division wanted to move on to its next projects and hence, basically dumped the movie into the wild. There was the option of delaying the release date but problems for Justice League ran deeper than any possible rectifications. Neither the Zack Snyder nor Joss Whedon cut managed to convince Warner Bros. to chalk out a remedy. The executives simply washed their hands off the project because they realized that no manner of plot-extensions would be … [Read more...] about Warner Bros.
