I found out in '95. But when did this merger take place?
At least some time in the mid to late 80s, since the Batman moves were always WB productions.
I Thought It Might've Been Longer Than That, But Considering The Allegations I Heard About Superman 3 & 4, That They Had To Make Up Characters B/c They Couldn't Get The Rights To Bizarro & Brainiac, I Guess Not.
DC Comics was acquired by Time Warner in 1976.
Here's a question; what was up w/all the Superman & Batman references I saw in the old Popeye & Bugs Bunny cartoons? How'd they get around the copyright issues?
Same way people make a dozen of those references these days in TV shows and the like.
how much do you think it would cost to own DC?
Your question doesn't really make sense. Are you asking how much it would cost to buy DC Comics?
dunno about DC, but Marvel's net worth is in the hundreds of millions. But that includes merchandising and what not. It gets very complicated, and it's very difficult to sum it all up as a simple coffee table figure
The Same Would Pretty Much Apply To DC, & WB Bought Them Out Before They Hit It Really Big. Before The Movies, The Serious Merchandising, & The Bruce Timm Projects.
Granted, if DC had their own autonomy, fiascos like "Batman & Robin", BOP & CINO might not have happened.
^ In a perfect world....but alas, DC is owned by folks who don't appreciate them or know what do do with them...aside from exploit them for as much money as possible.
Maybe before 1976.
Because the writer of STM mentions it and look at when they started on that film
This is incorrect. WB purchased DC Comics in 1968.
Fair use. Like when DC ran "Indiana Bones" in ONE story pf Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew.
