The Fate Of The DC Cinematic Universe Hinges On The Success Of MAN OF STEEL

You guys still want that Justice League movie, right? Well, in a piece about Jeff Robinov staying on as president of the Warner Bros. motion picture group, it's pointed out that the studio won't move ahead with Justice League until they see how Man of Steel performs. Read on for details!

Green Lantern was a flop. With a budget of over $200 million, the fact that it grossed less than $220 million worldwide was not a good result for Warner Bros. While success was pretty much guaranteed for them with Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, Green Lantern was the first real risk that the studio took when it comes to their superhero properties. For that reason, it should perhaps comes as no surprise that they are now extremely wary moving forward. While Marvel's The Avengers may have been a $1.5 billion success, they still aren't sure about whether or not they should move ahead with Justice League. Instead, it will be down to how well Man of Steel performs before they make a final decision on the fate of the superhero ensemble.


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.


Thanks to Variety for the information above. This is of course common sense to a certain extent, but the fact that a trade as reliable as this mention it means that we had best see Man of Steel as many times as possible if we want Justice League to finally become a reality!
