Latest Development In WB Legal Battle Means They Can Now Release A SUPERBOY Movie
While there's nothing to say that this will actually happen, a recent ruling by the U.S. District Court in the studio's favour means that Warner Bros. are now fully entitled to make a Superboy movie. Read on for further details!
Warner Bros. has had to be very careful with how they use Superboy on television and in films, which is perhaps why (apart from one offhand reference) we never saw Tom Welling's Clark Kent referred to by that name in Smallville. It's also why we probably shouldn't expect to see that part of the character's past explored in Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel. However, now that the U.S. District Court has sided with the studio in their battle against the Siegel estate, things may be about to change. What this means is that Warner Bros. now have full license to make a Superboy movie or TV show. As Deadline points out, "it’s premature to start talking about a Superboy movie. But not if Man of Steel‘s June 14-16 opening weekend box office is a big as anticipated." Rather than focusing on a young Superman, it's far more interesting to imagine some sort of Man of Steel spin-off which would focus on the version of the character who is a clone of both Clark Kent and Lex Luthor.
