    Bye, Felicia. Was never really a fan of where Didio led DC.

    It'll be interesting to see how specifically this affects 5G short term. I imagine it affects it greatly long term, but it'll be on Jurgens, Bendis, or whoever else to still make it a worthwhile story even if it doesn't have as much import to the line overall.

    At a guess, I'd imagine whoever Warner brings in will be given a mandate to simplify the Justice League (more Morrison/Waid than Johns/Snyder one event to another), expand the Bat-universe of titles while also going back to basics (Robin in a Batman title, Nightwing as Nightwing, less antagonism in the group, etc.), get top creative teams on Wonder Woman (movie), Batwoman (tv) and Supergirl (tv) to have some corporate synergy, and try to hire away someone from Marvel's Collected line to help strategize a compelling version of the Epic Collections line (these are all sales-forward ideas - Batman is the biggest seller and the three female media properties are the best thing they have going other than Harley).

    I didn't always agree with Dan Didio's decisions, but I will always support someone who is willing to take risks. And some of my favorite DC stories were released under his leadership. Thanks for everything, Dan, and good luck!

    P.S.: Whatever you do, Warner Bros, please keep Geoff Johns away from the publisher seat!

    I think its a little too late to a change of direction, but not too late for a change of implementation.

    What I mean by this is that 5g most likely will happen but definitely will not be the same 5g that Didio had in mind.

    Now I might be wrong and DC's new leadership could pivot to a completely different direction but this course of action makes sense to me.



    I was thinking this as well
    Bendis might rise even higher in the vacuum of power
    That would be horrifying. He already has too much influence as it is.

    Yeah, but they could just change it so that instead of us getting new legacy heroes as DiDio was planning, the pre-Flashpoint and current continuities just get merged. So Bruce Wayne stays as Batman, Clark Kent is still Superman, etc.

    I am sorry to see Dan go...While I certainly disagreed with many of his decisions he was someone who knew and loved DC and he really seemed to strive to expand readership for comics in different venues.

    Hopefully, DC will start looking for new writing talent if the rumors are true.

    Im thinking this aswell
    when I heard that DC was planning on replacing BW as Batman practically on the same year that a new Batman movie is in production I though "that doest makes sense"

    now Wonder Woman being retconned as starting her career on WWI
    now that makes sense

    stuff like that could be the disagreements that WB had with Didio.

    oh, its definitely his direction.
    I cannot imagine anyone strongarming him that much.

    Well whoever it is, it's fair to say they would still be "nostalgia fanatics" no matter the era. After all if they grew up with 90s DC, that would be nostalgia too wouldn't it. I often see people use the phrase "pet favorite" in reference to which characters are being pushed, when any creator, whether they have editorial control or not, has "pet favorites" from the particular era they grew up in. "Nostalgia" is always going to be a driving factor in executive decision making, whether the person in charge grew up in the 60s or the 90s.

    Anyway, they must like Lee since he's still around.

    Doubt it. WW and Aquaman have been the only really big successes. They sure as hell arenít going to copy DCEU Superman or Batman lol.

    Also I kind of doubt Bendis will be taking over. Didio is the one who brought him over in the first place, and Bendis has not at all been a star sales wise. If anything I think his influence might be reduced.

    Seriously. Lee and Didio have been absolutely awful at recruiting new talent. Itís time for new blood with new ideas.

    That's be horrible. What's the point of a 60+ years timeline if you don't age your heroes to replace them ?

    How will it help anyone but the bigger names, and the others will be returned to either limbo, obscurity or irrelevance because their mentors are still there, overshadowing them ?
