Re: Man of Steel Box Office Prediction Thread - - - - - - Part 15
When you are willing to create whole other cuts of your film to cater to a foreign audience *cough CHINA cough* then it's of little surprise that you do better outside of the US. But how does that effect the approach to the actual film on the creative side? So far it seems that WB gives a lot of creative control to the film makers. Not total control of course, these are still franchise characters after all. But compared to what MARVEL does it would seem that WB expects a director to do his/her best work if they give them more freedom. Thus Nolan being allowed to do what he did in TDKT and Snyder allowed to make the story choices he did in MOS. That backing of a director's vision is undermined when you tell them you have to make multiple cuts for multiple countries. It's great business, but bad for having well realized films.
