It's ridiculous. The problem is movie studios are pumping huge budgets into the movie when it needs a huge return just to break even.
Did Lone Ranger need a 200m budget? Seriously?
Exactly, problem is WBs have wanted a taste of Avengers type BO cause they think throwing the heroes into one film was the sole reason it made a billion. It didn't had they done their homework or started a DC Universe years ago they'd have had that billion dollar plus movie. This is what scares me about Superman vs Batman, I'm psyched but what if they think the solution is just those two on screen and we don't get a great product or they disgregard the start MOS had made for them and sacrifice Clarks journey for a Superman Batman spectacle. I'm scared and excited all at the same time cause if SVB doesn't work a potential DC universe on film might be ****ed all because they were greedy ****ers.
