Major media and entertainment companies across the world have been willing to enter this world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This is also not the first time that Warner Bros has been releasing its NFTs.
Last October 2021, the company issued what DC comics calls “the largest NFT drop” ever. Also, DC Comics has worked with Veve collectibles and released some of the NFT collectibles featuring the company’s most well-known comic book characters.
Besides, Warner Bros has also dropped NFT collectibles for different movies such as Matrix NFTs for its recent film “The Matrix Resurrections”.
Just like Warner Bros, the DC Comics competitor Marvel has also been dropping its NFTs. Over the last 12 months, the company has also dropped Marvel-themed superhero and supervillain NFTs.
