Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

More bad news for Superman

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/05/...or-six-movies/

But look, they’re obviously beginning something, and there’s a stretch of these flick. And so this is the beginning of the Justice League, as we all suspected as they were announcing that cast. We were like, ‘This is the beginning of a Justice League movie.’ From what I understand now, it’s no longer like, ‘This is Superman 2.’ They’re not doing these things. They’re doing like, ‘Here’s Man of Steel. Here’s Batman/Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The next one is not like a sequel to one of the characters. They’re just going to keep building their universe for about five or six movies.. But all of them… it’s supposed to tell one massive story, which is all Justice League oriented.

So basically Superman will need to be paired with someone in any future movie to expand the Justice League.

I wouldn't be surprised if only Batman get's a movie of his own. The rest have to share.


Green Lantern: the fire of Mars

etc etc

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I'm not really sure how feasible it is for a studio to produce just one huge, mega-budget Justice League movie after another. Or that they'd really want to risk burning people out on the concept so quickly.

They've said before they want to use JL as a way to introduce new characters and jumpstart their own franchises, and I'm inclined to think that's still the plan.

And if it IS a huge hit, then that would surely create interest for a new Superman film as well. All they have to do is come up with a really cool story and/or villain for him to fight, and people will want to see it.

Sounds like how Superman: The Animated Series was used to introduce the DCAU's version of the Flash, Aquaman, Doctor Fate, their first Green Lantern.

This is what happens when there are two Superman films, back to back, that don't do as well as had been hoped.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah there might have been a bit less emphasis placed on Batman in the sequel (and he wouldn't have been in the title), but I think it's likely WB would have still used the sequel as a jumping off point for a JL movie regardless.

Since it's such an obvious place to do it (and they really really want to have a JL movie).

So basically its not so much Superman failing and needing support from other heroes as other heroes riding on Superman's coat tails.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

It's sort of like Hulk's situation with Marvel Studios.

Two underperforming movies makes them hesitant to try giving the character a solo movie.

Even when Hulk stole the show in "The Avengers" Marvel still hasn't green lite a new movie with Ruffalo.


So anticipate movies with titles like this from DC

Green Lantern: The Batman Corps

The Flash: Race to Gotham

Wonder Woman: Bruce's Themysciran Vacation

Green Arrow: Batman v. Deathstroke

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Someone wrote an article late last year predicting that Warners was going to approach their DC superhero films more as DC Universe films all connected to the Justice League, with various combinations of characters featured in each film, than as individual franchises. It looks like that prediction might pan out.

I really want this movie to end with Superman and Batman hanging out in a cafe.

That kind of goes with what Kevin Smith said a few days ago too.

Now I'm not the biggest DC fan, but I welcome more Superhero films, and this approach seems kind of disappointing. Because while I love team up films every once in a while I think every hero deserves at least one or two solo films just so they can shine.

Yeah, I was referencing the article in light of Smith's comments.

I wasn't sure, that's why I brought it up. Still, two different sources talking about similar things. I think we can assume (until we find out otherwise) that this is the route DC/Warners is taking with the properties.

Again, to be clear, the article I read was just a prediction. It wasn't claiming any inside knowledge. It just may happen to turn out that it was correct.

Edit to add: I was having some trouble tracking it down at first, but I found it, so here's the article in question.

It would be the greatest after credits scene ever.

I know the guy who wrote that article.

He was very involved in the franchise during Superman Returns. His website at the time - BlueTights - had exclusive rights to a series of "vlogs" called Bryan's Journals which chronicled the behind-the-scenes process on Superman Returns back in 2004/2005. Those were fun.

I'm not sure how much input he has on this new iteration of the franchise, if any, but his thoughts are very insightful to say the least. I think he might be on the money with his prediction in the article.
