CEO Hints At Possible New HBO Max/Discovery+ Combined Streamer In 2022 But Says Rollout Will Be “Thoughtful & Mindful”

One of the biggest stories of 2021 so far, in the entertainment industry, at least, is the news that AT&T was, in essence, selling off WarnerMedia and merging it with Discovery. This came after a rough several-month period for WarnerMedia, as the studio kept getting hammered for its decision to send blockbuster films straight to streaming on the same day as theatrical and just the general feeling that HBO Max has yet to fully become the Netflix competitor it positioned itself to be.

One of the biggest stories of 2021 so far, in the entertainment industry, at least, is the news that AT&T was, in essence, selling off WarnerMedia and merging it with Discovery.

Of all the films that have been or will be simultaneously released on HBO Max and in theaters under WarnerMedia’s 2021 film strategy, the one that might be affected the most is “Dune.” Leading up to the release of “Dune,” there was so much buzz about the film and the possibilities that the Denis Villeneuve-directed feature could lead to a new franchise, with sequels and a spinoff TV series already in development.
