Share of both Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global slid Thursday as the markets weighed the idea of the two entertainment giants combining.

Warner Bros. Discovery dropped 69 cents or 6%, to $10.97 in morning trading, after closing Wednesday’s session down 5.6%. Paramount Global shares fell 43 cents, or 3%, to $15.07, adding to a 1.5% decline the day before.

The declines come as speculation about a deal continues after Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav met with Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish on Tuesday in New York to discuss the possibilities of bringing the two Hollywood conglomerates together. TheWrap reported that Zaslave also spoke with Shari Redstone, the controlling shareholder of Paramount Global.
