Can Superman Save The Justice League?

superman-symbol-with-dollar-sign

In My Humble Opinion:  Any attempt by Warner Bros. to make a Justice League movie will end in disaster.  Apparently the powers that be over at Warner Bros. have decided to hang the fate of a Justice League movie on the box office receipt totals of Man of Steel (the new Superman reboot directed by Zach Snyder).  Personally, I think The Avengers was lucky to perform as well as it did.  I liked the movie, hell I pretty much liked all the movies leading up to The Avengers (Captain America was a little lame) but I think the success of  The Avengers was a situation where everything came together just at the right time.  For Warner Bros. to try to use this formula and apply it to The Justice League is going to end badly.  Other than the Batman franchise, Warner Bros. doesn’t have much to lean on in the way of hope with The Justice League being successful.  In fact, while we’re being honest, the latest Batman, The Dark Knight Rises was the weakest of them all which doesn’t bode well for trying to sustain momentum going forward; and let’s not forget Green Lantern, which showed more “green” on-screen than it took in at the box office.  Anyway, I’m excited about Man of Steel.  I hope I’m wrong about Warner Bros. and it is able to move forward with a Justice League movie (I know my son would be excited too)…I just won’t get my hopes up and I’d advise you don’t either.  

Part of the Variety article below:

Stakes are high for “Man of Steel.” Other than Nolan’s Batpics, Warners has not been able to effectively exploit the DC library. Its 2011 “Green Lantern” underperformed, and a “Justice League” film wouldn’t likely be in theaters before 2015, as Warner’s top brass has indicated that they are awaiting the results of “Man of Steel,” which opens June 14, before moving further ahead.
