Default Re: WB Will Produce More Superhero Films, But When?

I really think they should make a Superman Reboot and make the JLA movie everybody against Batman because of TDK. I mean, in the end, the cops and everyone are against Batman. So that will be great to see in a JLA movie. Something like Dark Knight Returns.

The president hires JLA to take down Batman while enemies ploy to destroy the heroes altogether.

I think Batman would show superman the green rock he keeps in his utility belt at all times. He has plans for everyone and isn't the pushover people think. As funny as the 'prep time' joke is its got its root in truth

Superman Returns Gets TrueHD Treatment
Posted August 21, 2008 08:51 AM by Josh Dreuth

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Home Video has revealed that they will re-release the Bryan Singer film 'Superman Returns' on September 9th with a Dolby TrueHD and PCM soundtracks. To the disappointment of fans, the original Blu-ray release featured only a Dolby Digital soundtrack while the HD DVD got the lossless audio track. Warner is now rectifying the situation with a proper Blu-ray release.

Editions of 'Superman Returns' with the Dolby TrueHD soundtrack were originally made available in a limited quantity with the purchase of certain Pioneer Blu-ray players. Since that time, fans have been eagerly awaiting Warner to re-release the title with the upgraded soundtrack.

No other specs are expected to change for the re-release. The release has been given a new UPC code.

Yeah sure in the comics he keeps a chunk of kryptonite with him but he is talking about TDK Batman who is very limited in terms of prep time abilities.

Given enough prep time, like eternity, Batman could beat God.

Warner Bets on Fewer, Bigger Movies
By LAUREN A.E. SCHUKER
August 22, 2008; Page B1

Emboldened by this summer's success with "The Dark Knight," Warner Bros.' movie studio is setting a new strategy.

The Time Warner Inc. unit, like some other Hollywood studios, is planning to release fewer films into the crowded marketplace. But the studio, known for making more big, expensive movies than most rivals, plans to make even more of those -- some centered on properties from its DC Comics unit, such as Batman.

Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov wants the studio to release as many as eight such movies a year by 2011. "The long-term goal of the studio is to take advantage of what has become a very global market by focusing on bigger films that require a bigger commitment," he says. Warner Bros. films released last year grossed $2 billion internationally, about 42% more than their $1.4 billion domestic take.

Mining the comic-book franchise is central to the success of Warner Bros.' strategy. Its lineup of "tent poles" -- Hollywood-speak for big movies that are the foundation of a studio's slate -- has thinned. Warner Bros. has been slow to capitalize on DC, and it now faces a rival in Marvel Entertainment Inc.'s Marvel Studios, the company behind box-office gusher "Iron Man."

Superhero films based on comic-book legends, like "The Dark Knight," have emerged as some of the strongest players in the global market, in part because they're natural candidates for tie-ups with consumer products and games that can also be marketed globally.

"Superheroes are more global than ever in today's commercial world, existing in 30 languages and in more than 60 countries," says Paul Levitz, president and publisher of DC Comics. The characters are "a world-wide export," he says.

Marvel's 'Iron Man,' was a big success at the box office. Warner has been slower to capitalize on its DC Comics characters.

"Films with our DC properties have the opportunity to support other divisions in the company in a way that our other movies don't," Mr. Robinov says, for example, with products such as a Superman game or toys. By 2011, Mr. Robinov plans for DC Comics to supply the material for up to two of the six to eight tent-pole films he hopes Warner Bros. will have in the pipeline by then.

While big ambitions can result in a huge payoff, they can also end in huge losses. Warner's car adventure "Speed Racer" bombed at the box office in May. The film, said to have cost as much as $150 million, has taken in only $43.9 million in the U.S. Some other big-budget Warner films, such as spy comedy "Get Smart," also have failed to meet expectations.

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. shut its two art-house labels, Picturehouse and Warner Independent Pictures. The studio currently releases 25 to 26 films a year. By 2010, Mr. Robinov plans to pare production to 20 to 22 movies a year.

A movie referred to internally as "Justice League of America," originally said to be for next summer, was planned as one of the studio's major releases. With that film, starring a superhero team, Warner hoped to spark interest in DC characters like Green Lantern who haven't yet attained the level of popularity of Batman. But script problems, among other things, have delayed the movie.

The studio said last week that "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," originally slated for November release, would come out next July -- on the same weekend that "The Dark Knight" opened this year. The Batman sequel made more than $150 million in the U.S. that weekend. "We just needed a July movie," said Alan Horn, president of the studio, at the time.

Warner Bros. also put on hold plans for another movie starring multiple superheroes -- known as "Batman vs. Superman" -- after the $215 million "Superman Returns," which had disappointing box-office returns, didn't please executives. "'Superman' didn't quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to," says Mr. Robinov. "It didn't position the character the way he needed to be positioned." "Had 'Superman' worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009," he adds. "But now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman without regard to a Batman and Superman movie at all."

One of the studio's other big releases planned for 2009, "Watchmen," is the subject of a high-profile copyright lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California by News Corp.'s Twentieth Century Fox.

Based on the premise that superheroes are real people grappling with their own problems, "Watchmen" is an apocalyptic vision of their world. Fox says it is seeking an injunction to enforce its copyright interest in the film. Last week, a federal judge ruled that it may have rights to the property. News Corp. is the parent of Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones & Co.

With "Batman vs. Superman" and "Justice League" stalled, Warner Bros. has quietly adopted Marvel's model of releasing a single film for each character, and then using those movies and their sequels to build up to a multicharacter film. "Along those lines, we have been developing every DC character that we own," Mr. Robinov says.

Like the recent Batman sequel -- which has become the highest-grossing film of the year thus far -- Mr. Robinov wants his next pack of superhero movies to be bathed in the same brooding tone as "The Dark Knight." Creatively, he sees exploring the evil side to characters as the key to unlocking some of Warner Bros.' DC properties. "We're going to try to go dark to the extent that the characters allow it," he says. That goes for the company's Superman franchise as well.

The studio is set to announce its plans for future DC movies in the next month. For now, though, it is focused on releasing four comic-book films in the next three years, including a third Batman film, a new film reintroducing Superman, and two movies focusing on other DC Comics characters. Movies featuring Green Lantern, Flash, Green Arrow, and Wonder Woman are all in active development.

Many of the studio's directors credit Mr. Robinov for taking Warner Bros.' films in a darker and deeper direction. Christopher Nolan, who directed "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," says Mr. Robinov "really encouraged the logic of the villain" from "Batman Begins." That led to focusing heavily on the Joker in the sequel. "At the script stage, Jeff really wanted us to be very clear on the Joker's lack of purpose," he says.
------------

1) There will be a Superman movie in few years (2010-2011). IMO best news ever.

2) For the first time they openly say that SR was a wrong movie to relaunch the character.

3) The next movie will be clearly a reboot or an heavy revamp.

Looks like we are getting a re-boot, which is dissapointing to me as it seemingly means no Singer and, most dissapointing of all, no Routh.

But, as a Superman fan, I will see what they do with it before making any sort of judgement. BTW, shouldnt this be on the front page?

^Just to add to that though, why re-release SR on Blu-Ray if they dont plan on doing a follow up?

Default Re: Braking News: At WB they finally speak clearly about Superman

my first choice would be a reboot and go for a modern take of supes . that said it they went for more of a revamp , that would be okay as i loved some of the production design of SR , the kent farm , the daily planet building .Brandon was okay just let him speak more . ( one of things i never got was why he spoke so little , as when i watched the film i thought this guy is a good superman in his own way , why not let him say a bit more .)

As for the release of SR on blue ray , warners love doing that sort of thing , i think the burton bat movies are coming out on blue ray soon too . I'll get the fan . i guess too , i hope that the '' look'' of the film might be a touch 'brighter' on blue ray and not the dark filter look , which left parts looking kinda flat for me .

To me this sounds more along the lines of what Jett was saying over in the BOF where the next Superman movie will be a heavy revamp of the hero that by the end of the movie it will look like a reboot..

It could even be a revamp a la Batman Forever.

Yes, this is a good news. In the article the name Superman appears a lot of times, far more than the other WB's proterties. It's a sign that for them Superman is a priority and that they want to release a new movie within three years. I say that 2010 can be considered the right year.

Well, Robinov told it like it is, no reason now for some to keep denying the reality of SR's failure. Lets hope WB gets it right next time, bring Brainiac, Darkseid... go for darkness, break hell loose!

If SR were successful at the BO we'd have had Superman vs Batman???

Everything happens for a reason.

Ah, now I get it. Singer's Superman wasn't dark enough.

Good news for the ones of us that like Superman's other side.

I guess the complaints of things being too dark should've been not dark enough. Hopefully though, we won't go back to Peter's idea of a dark Superman with a "caged animal quality" and the fericious "eyes of a killer" in our quest for Superman's darkness.

Still, it seems that's that then.

What happens now?
