And LOL to "it made 600+ because of nolan" statement! seriously I haven't laughed like this for a long time. I guess if Nolan's name is that popular then batman begins and the prestige would've made 600 million +

Why would you think that? ofcourse MOS had the higher mountain to climb simply due to the fact that the spidey franchise was established int he international market while the superman franchise was stalled internationally (thanks to the craptacular SR), to expect a movie coming off the heels of a stagnant franchise to make "ateast as much as ASM" is totally unrealistic.

Don't agree, the reason batman is in the sequel is because neither superman nor a rebooted batman would stand a chance in hell of going into the ring with heavy weights like avengers 2 or star wars, WB know this all too well and need their 2 biggest characters together if they are to compete in a very congested 2015 summer.
It's a mystery.
