So, Warner Bros announced that their "sequel" to "Man of Steel" is going to be a Batman/Superman movie. Okay. I have not seen a more blatant move that reeks of desperation in a long time. I'm not going to say that "Man of Steel" underperformed since it made Warner Bros a modest profit. But it wasn't the smash hit that WB was hoping for. The second and third weeks, it took a huge box office drop. So, WB went back to the well they know they can count on, the Bat.
Am I opposed to a Batman/Superman movie? No. But if "Man of Steel" had made a billion dollars, I guarantee you that we would have seen a solo Superman sequel that would set things up like Clark Kent's role in Metropolis, Lex Luthor, etc. While we might still see those things, that focus is going to be diverted to reintroducing Batman into this universe. Do the team-up later.
Basically, Warner Bros doesn't believe they can do well with superhero movies that don't have Batman in them. "How do we sell Wonder Woman? Toss in Batman!" "We need to get the public to like Green Lantern, hey, let's throw in Batman!" "How do we adapt Sandman to the big screen? I know, Batman!" This is sad. Not to mention the fact that I think they're going to be over-saturating the Batman brand in the process.
I have no hopes for this thing, sorry.
"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" sounds cool, though.
