Warner Bros. had it's share of big screen flops in 2015, but parent company Time Warner thinks the near future will be bright -- with some big help from Wonder Woman. In a speech at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference (via Variety), Time Warner CEO and Chairman Jeff Bewkes said 2016 will see the movie studio switching to a plan of "very numerous number of big franchise film releases."

Bewkes names next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them as guaranteed successes to contrast recent duds like Jupiter Ascending and Pan. The Time Warner head also made it a point to name-check Wonder Woman as a game-changer for 2017.

“We think [Wonder Woman] could bring an under-represented female audience to this genre that frankly has not been served well in the past and that could be exciting,” said Bewkes.

Talk also hit upon the changing landscape of television and Time Warner's role in it, given they own HBO and own a stake in Hulu.
