DC Launches A Female-Centric Universe

dc girlsDC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel are teaming up to create a superhero storytelling universe that is geared entirely towards young girls.

DC Super Hero Girls will feature DC Comics’ female characters but this time as relatable teens and will hit multiple platforms and product lines starting fall 2015.

There is a growing rise and acknowledged power of female fandom.

Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more will be debuting in this series. The characters will be in their formative years and not quite at the top of their super hero (or villain) game.

“DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl,” said DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters. I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls.”
