That really depends on the franchise in question. There are franchises that do count their side products (comics, tv/games (depending on which is the main product), etc.). Perhaps Smallville would be one, especially considering where the story stems from.
More importantly, since there's zero likelihood of any further filmed Smallville
, there's no chance that the comics continuation would ever been overridden.
