Justice League of 2017 can't stay out of the news

WarnerMedia has launched an investigation into the production of “Justice League,” a source with knowledge at the company confirmed to Variety. The decision comes after repeated public statements by one of the film’s stars, Ray Fisher, alleging misconduct by filmmaker Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg while making the film. There have been no findings yet, and there is no specific timeline for the investigation.

How many titles at DC Comics are losing money?

The worst rumours on the internet is that DC Comics is headed straight for a shut-down, followed by Marvel, because the two big comic book companies just can't make enough money versus their overhead (something sort've addressed by a Bleeding Cool article, scroll down below, mentioning the cost of DC Comics special building in California), and that audience loss has only gotten worse as new initiatives take off and then burn out.

Predictions of the demise of DC/Marvel has been around for a very long time, and I can recall seeing such articles in the late 1970s, so this isn't a new idea, but one that bounces along through generations of comic book fans, with the reasoning changing but always grounded in one vicious reality: sales of single issue comics continue to slide ever downward.

Jim Lee did state, rather surprisingly, that 20-25% of the comic books that DC Comics were publishing were not making money and were to be cut. DC Comics' November solicitations listed a number that were no longer going forward.
