And if memory serves there was a few Superman references in Batman Forever. See how it turned out.
I don't think an easter egg, and especially something like a logo on a satellite that could've been a last minute addition necessarely means "we have a crossover coming your way and we thought about it awhile ago".



Well we will have to agree to disagree on this one. There are plenty examples both in comic books and animated films that shows/proves otherwise.
what are u saying last minute additions
so even before mos had its run waynea logo was in the movie before the announcement of wf/mos2
and what works in the comics and animation dont mean it will work for the big screen
you had to remembers 100's of millions dollars are at steak here and WB will have to find out whats works for them just because 10% of the GA want wonder woman dont mean she will get a solo flim
she mite be better as an addition to another hero story
she will work just fine bouncing form JL to a batman 2 and and then see how she does on her own they have to make smart decisions

Lots of stories about TW profit jump. Stories also talk about WB film and TV division jumping 13% in revenue. Stories also credit MOS as well as other projects with revenue jump.

I don't think a rerelease is going to be in the cards. MoS is hitting a lot of dollar movies this weekend and I don't know if movies get big re-releases once they hit the dollar cinema.

It will be interesting to see how MoS does at the second run cinemas because often movies that, for what ever reason, miss the GA in first run, explode in second run. I think WB may have rushed it to the second run to capitalize on the last couple weeks of summer when the kids can feel matinees etc.

i would expect to see MoS box office actually go up this week compared to last weekend. Heck Star Trek has been beating it this week based on the sheer volume it is pulling it at second run, so I would expect MoS to atleast move ahead of Trek. If not it will be evidence that the GA never really felt drawn to MoS in the first place.

Again, its a reboot. I dnt care if its superman or spider-man, reboots do not make a billion.
mos did just fine. You guys trying to say it failed because it didnt make 800 mill + are in living in la la land. Its made more than 90% of the marvel films released. Bigger budget or no, more people still went to see it than most marvel films.

The Batman reboot on the back of Superman/Batman may make a billion.

IF this movie was a flop, Cavill wouldnt be coming back with most of his supporting cast , as well as the same director.
Did Brandon Routh come back?
How about Singer?

But if they do that, it won't be a reboot, it will be a prequel/sequel to the Batman part of MOS 2.

When the Japan box office news stops then we will be knee deep in home video news and start getting some cliips from the bonus features and maybe even glimpses of the deleted scenes... And about the time we all have the blu ray in our hands (can't wait to see the smack down in Smallville in slow motion!) we will start getting the first real concrete info about the sequel.

So, while the box office news is winding down, there is a lot to look forward to.

The movie is doing fine, blame WB and their moronic release date. If you want to complain about BO gross.

Let's hope they don't give MOS 2 a terrible release date. Even Batman can't cure that.

Regardless of all the debate about competition, etc, it is pretty clear that regardless of how it might have fared once the competition hit that MoS lost bout 30-40 million dollars from having two major competitors open in its second week. Even if it dropped at the same rate once the competition did arrive it would have easily made over 300 million. It would have also given it another week of people seeing it as the "newest" movie out which could have potentially added to wider word of mouth to the GA.

Even with that said, regardless of the reasons, the legs didn't follow normal trends. Then again, this entire summer has been kind of odd with the number of releases with multiple "big marketing" movies coming out each week. Heck this week there is four major releases all of which will take in less than their potential openings because of a glut in the market place.

It just feels like the studios are taking the Walmart approach, "don't worry about big sells, just sell huge volume...." not good movie business thinking.

If those two movies made MOS lose 30-40M, how much do you think TDKR made TASM lose?

Potentially a pretty big chunk and chances are both were hurt significantly by opening on the same day in China.

Well Superman also has had FAR more recognition and overall exposure than 90% of Marvel films as well, you can't forget that. He was already a well known character worlds over before MOS, unlike most Marvel films so that's not really a fair comparison.

Spider-Man is the only Marvel superhero that would be comparable to Supes in the respect.

Activities on the sequel? I hate it. It is suppose to be MOS sequel. But the spotlight is all on batman now. So pissed off.
50M for Bale to return... WTH!!!
Will it still be a superman movie???!!!
Or superman is the supporting role now!!!???
Madness!!!!!!
