This is the very first WB shield logo, nicknamed the "Brain Shield". The top half of the shield included a photo of the exterior of the their original studio building, with the "WB" initials occupying the bottom half, separated by a small dash. The title card with this version of the logo originally included the text "A Warner Brothers Classic of the Screen," which was later replaced with "A Warner Brothers Production" in 1926.

This was the first logo design in which the "WB" letters filled the whole shield. It is inferred that this version of the shield emphasized how WB ignored Jack L. Warner's dislike of sound films. There are two different types of the lettering "WARNER BROS. PICTURES, Inc.". This logo was also used for the presentations of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons.

1935–1937

In 1935, this variant was used as the "Zooming W-B Shield". This logo was used in Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons until 1937.

In 1937, a ring was added onto the shield reading the company's full name ("WARNER BROS. PICTURES INC.") for the first time, a design that would resonate within many of its subsequent logo designs.

In 1948, the WB shield was introduced to resemble a shield without the banner.

1953–1967, 1970-1972, 1985–2019

After its introduction at the end of the 1953 film Hondo, this logo was slightly modified to be used as a print logo for film trailers and other stationary media. After it was discontinued in 1972, it was later reintroduced on the poster for the 1985 film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome until it was discontinued again in 2019.

Warner Bros.-Seven Arts

1967–1970

In 1967, for the first time in WB history, the text "WB" was nowhere to be found on the logo; instead, the symbol "W7", symbolizing its merger with Seven Arts, appeared.

Warner Bros., Inc.

1970–1972

Warner Bros. 1970.jpg

This logo was once superimposed over one of the backgrounds used for the 1948 logo that would later be used for the 1984 logo. This was used during the period when Warner was owned by Kinney National Company; that firm's name would sometimes appear inside the rectangular block in place of "Warner Bros." in this logo.

1972–1990

Famed logo designer Saul Bass, also responsible for the Geffen "G" and the United Airlines logos of the 1970s, created this logo, which was very unpopular in its time. However, this is still used as a logo today for other Warner properties (mainly by the now-unrelated Warner Music Group), and the stylized typeface was used for WB's home video division from 1978 to 1996.

Warner Bros. Pictures (second era)

1993–2019

In 1993, the banner "Warner Bros. Pictures" was re-added to the shield, resembling the logo used for the 1937 and 1984 logos. It was used as the corporate logo of the company for 26 years until the 2019 branding.

2019-present

Warner Bros. Pictures 2019.svg

After Warner Bros. Entertainment revealed a new logo on November 13, 2019, Warner Bros. Pictures also refreshed its image to match with the modern look of the new shield and dropped the banner and "Warner Bros. Pictures" is below the shield. Used in tandem with the previous logo. It debuted on final trailer of Tenet (2020).

Note

Despite the name change of its logo to Warner Bros. Pictures in 1984, the company was still referred to as Warner Bros. until 2000, when its legal name in advertising materials was changed back to Warner Bros. Pictures; it is still officially referred to as Warner Bros. outside of this.
