Over the past few days, it’s been suggested that the animation arm of DC Studios and Warner Bros. Television are getting ever closer to a deal with Amazon Prime Video, meaning that DC animated content (movies and TV shows) might be available to stream on their platform.
The streaming platform, which Amazon runs, looks set to take over a major animation deal with the DC Animation arc of Warner Bros. Pictures. The deal has yet to be signed, and the details haven’t been confirmed. However, we’re expecting to see DC’s animation offerings appear exclusively on Prime Video in the not-so-distant future.

This would be a huge coup for Amazon, and many people might wonder why Warner Bros Discovery and DC Studios might not be looking to put this content on HBO Max as they have in the past. Well, it seems as though HBO Max has been put on the back burner by the company as they can make more money by licensing out their shows and movies to other streaming services. Sony Pictures has made money over the years doing that.
All of this means that we should see the likes of the Harley Quinn, Batman, Superman and the Justice League animated shows and movies all turn up on Prime Video. As a Prime Video subscriber myself, this news gets me very excited.

The deal could also include shows from Warner Bros Television’s back-catalogue of classic titles such as the renowned Batman: The Animated Series Kevin Conroy’s. I’m sure many people are interested in re-watching that series after passing.
Moreover, it’s also been suggested that this deal could include the development of new animated shows being bankrolled by Amazon themselves, which is another reason why DC Studios and Warner Bros Discovery might be looking to make this sort of deal with a company the size of Amazon.
