As one of America’s biggest film studios, Warner Bros. has several divisions under its umbrella- including DC Entertainment (which has comic book publisher DC Comics, comic book publisher Vertigo and satire magazine MAD).

This means that the theme park will have access to DC universe characters like Batman, The Flash and Wonder Woman, among others, as well as historical cartoon characters from Warner Bros. productions like Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, and more.
