But what's being pointed out is that Superman Returns didn't fail on it's own merit. Before a dime was actually spent towards the movie, it was already carrying about a $150Million burden from previous false starts. If it wasn't burdened with that previously spent budget, it would have performed a slight bit better than Batman Begins. It was front loaded to fail
That's right...BB wasn't saddled with the budgets for all the previous attempts to get a Batman movie off the ground
A couple of points:
1. Are you sure BB wasn't saddled with the budgets for some of the abortive attempts at doing "Batman V," "Superman vs Batman," the Fincher Batman, etc.?
2. I could be wrong, but I think that SR was a money loser compared to BB even if you factor out the budgets for the abortive attempts.
