Somebody send up the Bat Signal! Warner Bros. recently announced, in partnership with Abu Dhabi development firm Miral Asset Management, that it will be opening a one-billion dollar theme park at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Yas Island is already home to such attractions as the sports-car themed park Ferrari World, the water park Yas Waterworld, the water sport event venue Yas Marina Circuit, the award-winning golf course Yas Links, and the tropical club Yas Beach.

Many licensed Warner Bros. properties are already found in Six Flags parks across the United States, and Warner has existing parks in Australia and Spain. Warner Bros. World in Abu Dhabi is expected to open in 2018.

    Why would DC Comics and Warner Bros be interested in opening a business in a country that sees women as second class citizens and outlaws homosexuality? Double standards anyone?

    1. A1anne

      Probably in order to change that. I mean if an american big shot came to place something that will completly upgrade their tourism situation, they won’t have any choices but to please them and change their society.

      1. Greg

        I highly doubt that. There have been big American Companies in places like Abu Dhabi and China for years with no change.
