Is the DC League of Super-Hero Pets a franchise?
Generally speaking, if a superhero movie does well, it’s safe to assume that a sequel is possible, especially when it’s aimed specifically at kids. However, with all the restructuring going on behind the scenes at DC Entertainment following Discovery’s takeover of WarnerMedia, the future looks bleaker.
Variety (opens in a new tab)reports that CEO David Zaslav is exploring ways to strengthen the DC brand so it can compete with Marvel. If nothing else, that potentially means sequels could be delayed until the dust settles at Warner Bros. Discovery.
