Warner Brothers Keeps DC; Gives New Line Cinema Vertigo's Properties For The Big Screen


Deadline are reporting that Warner Bros. have decided to give Vertigo Comics' properties to their New Line Cinema subsidiary. Warner Bros has its hands full with Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and all of the other tent-pole pictures they are planning from DC titles, and so it would make sense for the Vertigo titles to be steered under Toby Emmerich and Richard Brener. The Vertigo titles are considered subversive compared to the WB-steered DC Comics titles with those venerable superheroes.

Maybe the appropriate film on which to launch a dedicated Vertigo label would be Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, which Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been wrapped up in as director and star since he made his helming debut with Don Jon. Deadline scooped his involvement in the project two years ago. That project, a revered title by Gaiman which fanboys have waited years to see, has a script by David S. Goyer and Jack Thorne. Other titles in that constellation include Constantine, Dark Universe, Preacher and Lucifer.
