It was recently revealed that Warner Bros. Television Studios is actively in the process of closing a deal with Amazon to bring DC-related animated content to the platform. The news was teased by Channing Dungey, the Chairman of Warner Bros. Television Group, at Content London 2022, the world’s leading development marketplace and conference.
Dungey stating that the studio is “exploring animated IP on different platforms,” including HBO Max, where much of their content currently resides, including shows like Young Justice and Harley Quinn, as well as their large slate of DC Universe Animated Originals.
“With animation we used to be about staying in-house but now we are doing it on different platforms,” she added. “HBO Max is the first stop but we are in the process of closing a big deal with Amazon featuring DC branded content in animation.”
This comes just a few weeks after the announcement that James Gunn and Peter Safran will be taking over the newly-formed DC Studios as co-Chairs and co-CEOs, and are already making plans for the future.

What will this mean for the current run of DC animated shows and movies? Will they remain on HBO Max, while a new crop will be developed for Amazon? Will some of them be shifted over if a deal is struck? Only time will tell.
