Omni-present media goliath, Warner Bros, has announced the imminent arrival of its NFT-powered Movieverse. As a result, bringing cinematic masterpiece, ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ to the cutting-edge realm of Web3.
Back in the olden days, when DVDs were still a thing, home movies would contain a wealth of glorious bonus content, sharing with fans a wide array of exclusive images, out-takes, deleted content and more. All this ended however, when streaming services moved in to steal their thunder and rendered bonus material unwieldy and difficult to manage. Following which, this extra material fell by the wayside, much to the detriment of humankind, until now.
Warner Bros. is launching the WB Movieverse platform, a new marketplace where fans will be able to buy, sell and trade movie NFTs.
