What you said is true but big actors is not a good guaranty that the movie will sell. Again better spend your money on publicity, good directors & producers than actors.
And I am a bit worried about the future of the comics book movie industry. Now it s cool to play in a super hero movie but very soon this trend will stop. I see that in JLA Bale wont be part of it. Is it really because he s too expensive or that Bale him self don't wont to be recognize as Batman? Big actors are also a big risk to consider.
Maybe Luke cage wont be big but if it s good movie that s what matter.
