Re: The box office "bar of success" for Batman/ Superman.
Apparently Michigan's shooting budget is $131 M. Given this will be only Gotham's scenes, I imagine a budget of $250 -300 M is now guaranteed. Add in a P&R Budget that will approach $200 M (Avengers had a marketing budget of $175 M) and we're looking at a film that needs to make $800-900 M to see a penny of profit.
Avengers allegedly needed to clear $1.1 Billion to see profit after legit production costs ($300 M) P&A ($175 M) and Downey's % cut off the back end ($75 M). If the costs are indeed comparable, slight growth for Batman/ Superman is not on the table.
MCU Rest of Decade prediction:
2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man
2016: Captain America 3, Doctor Strange
2017: Thor 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Inhumans
2018: Avengers 3, Black Panther, Incredible Hulk 2
2019: Iron Man 4, Doctor Strange 2, Ms. Marvel
