Warner Brothers has said that if the 2006 Superman Returns had made half a billion dollars they would've pushed harder for a sequel to that film.
Pushed harder against who? Themselves?

Sixteen.
WB invested $260 million in Superman Returns and it only made $379 million worldwide. That didn't inspire much confidence in TPTB. To be fair Batman Begins made less with a smaller budget but they "TPTB'' believed it could do more. So Batman got a sequel. While the Superman writing, directing and production team (the same team that worked on X-Men and X2, all quitely abandoned any potential sequel to Superman Returns. Bryan Singer's Superman failed to inspire and didn't "position" the character the way WB had hoped.

Now they've hired Zak Snyder an action film guy who was did great work in 3 of his adaptions 300, Dawn Of the Dead 2004, and Watchmen to reboot Superman. On a $175 million dollar budget.
