In an interview with DS, the exec explained that any successful comic book projects in other mediums would be a positive for DCUO.
"Any growth in the general popularity of comic book properties as well as other MMO titles is great for DC Universe Online. The success of movies like The Dark Knight have reignited the genre and a whole new demographic is suddenly engaging with these characters," he said.
"There are several new movies in the works as well as other games like the [Marvel MMO] all in production. Any comic book game or movie that comes out and delivers a high quality entertainment experience to the fans is a positive for all of us."
A Marvel MMO was previously in development at Cryptic Studios before its cancellation in 2008. Gazillion Entertainment is currently working on the game, although a potential release window has not been announced.
DC Universe Online goes live later this year.
