DC POWERHOUSE FILM SLATE
Standing tall for justice, equality and peace, Wonder Woman headlines WBCP’s lineup ahead of the June 2 release of the enduring character’s first-ever solo feature film, directed by Patty Jenkins and released by Warner Bros. Pictures. WBCP brings the global cultural touchstone to fans with its Amazon-sized global licensing and merchandising program, which began to hit retail on April 7.
One of the most highly anticipated Super Hero team-ups of all time, Justice League unleashes its power during Licensing Expo 2017. Director Zack Snyder brings the world’s most iconic Super Heroes together for the first time ever on the big screen in what promises to be an epic theatrical event for movie and comic book fans alike. In support of the upcoming November release from Warner Bros. Pictures, WBCP will roll out a massive merchandise program around the world, featuring the fan-favorite DC Super Heroes in a range of products, programs and activations bringing the film to life for fans of all ages. Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment together are launching the first-ever global consumer online initiative on June 1, allowing fans to stand alongside their favorite DC Super Hero when they officially “Join the League.”
Another member of the legendary league of heroes being featured at Licensing Expo 2017 is the mighty half-human, half-Atlantean DC Super Hero Aquaman. WBCP is excited to give licensees and partners a glimpse of Aquaman to create a worldwide swell around the epic action adventure from director James Wan, who will plunge audiences into Aquaman’s all-new, expansive underwater world. The mighty DC Super Hero’s own first-ever standalone motion picture, Aquaman swims into theaters in 2018 from Warner Bros. Pictures.
