Jim Lee speaks about Didio’s Departure, other DC-Related News

Three Days ago, Jim Lee spoke at his own Personal Spotlight Panel to address the situation involving the recent departure of Former Co-Publisher Dan Didio.

“There’s continually new things going on, and I look at being sole publisher now and the team I’m working with. Much more in trenches now than ever before.”

Jim Lee also went onto discussing DC’s current status of the Publishing Company, it’s status with Warner Bros:

“We’ve been with Warner Bros. for decades, The actual strategy for DC is to put publishing at center of what we do. It’s the engine of all the movies, TV, cartoons, we do. And so its my intent going forward as¬†the¬†Publisher, to lean into the collective years of my team.”

As for the rumors about Marvel acquiring DC, these rumors have plagued the internet as of late, but Mr. Lee shot the rumors down while offering a vague explanation to it as well:

“To address some of the stuff that is out there, there are rumors… speculation, I wouldn’t put any credence into it. DC has been around for 85 years, and we’ll be around for another 85 years. I hope to be doing this panel in 85 years.”

Then came the notion of 5G initiative, DC’s Impending reboot, shooting those rumors down too while clarifying:

“It’s hard to talk about things we haven’t announced. The intention not to do a line-wide reboot, our focus in talking to the editorial team is to continue what we’ve done best: Character-driven stories, pairing right creators on right characters, and developing characters that are inclusive and diverse.”
