The $270 Million Budget definitely sounds like Horse Hockey. At this point, Green Lantern is the only Box Office, and with it's performance, there's no way they would approve a $270 Million budget. Maybe after Man of Steel opens (if it does well) and a Batman Reboot looks promising, they might risk $200 Million, but, no way, IMHO, with only Green Lantern's performance being known.
