WarnerMedia Announces Warner Max, a New Film Production Arm Specifically For HBO Max Movies

When studios offload movies to streaming services, the effect can be the same as if the films were sprayed by a skunk: they carry with them a bit of a funk that can be difficult to fully shake off.

The success of Joker will only bolster that initiative, and it appears the future of DC Comics on screen will include the return of The Flash, a new movie for Green Lantern...
