X-POSITION: Nicieza Body-Slides From "Age of Apocalypse" to "Deadpool & Cable"
Creators | Masashi Kishimoto says he’s done with Naruto and his friends, now that the manga has ended its 15-year run, and he’s also not eager to return to the grind of a weekly series. However, that doesn’t mean he’s putting away his pen and ink. On the contrary, he has already created character designs for a new sci-fi series, and he’s interested in working with the digital magazine Shonen Jump Plus, which would be more flexible with regard to the story’s length and schedule. “Since Naruto was a bigger hit than I could ever imagine,” he said, “I’d like to aim for the next hit. I don’t know when I can announce the next manga, but because I plan on challenging myself to surpass Naruto, please wait for it.” [Kotaku]
Business | Following weeks (if not months) of rumblings, Warner Bros. has made it official: Jeff Robinov, the Warner Bros. Pictures Group president who oversaw the 2009 restructuring of DC Comics into DC Entertainment, will leave the studio following a reorganization that establishes a new leadership team: Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution, Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production, and Toby Emmerich, president and chief operating officer of New Line Cinema. It doesn’t appear as if Robinov will be replaced. DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson, who initially reported Robinov, presumably will answer directly to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara; following a shakeup last month in the television and home entertainment division, Nelson reported to both Robinov and Tsujihara. [The Hollywood Reporter]
