I love the first two Hellboy movies, but they weren't the most financially successful films ever.

It what happens when you release Hellboy 2 the week before TDK, its legs got kneecapped.

Its definitely still on track, barring any major collapse. It should also be noted it will lose its IMAX screens this week.

Hellboy 2 made me never want to see another Hellboy movie. I think it's mediocre box office had less to do with TDK and more to do with an overabundance of weird characters and a weak story. Hellboy and the villain were pretty cool, but other than that... I thought that movie was a miserable failure in comparison to the first one, which I loved.

WB needs to make a decision on how they're going to carry on the Batman franchise or start new. It's pure gold, even a terrible movie would bring in millions at this point.

To be honest, Batman is the easiest DC character to adapt. The biggest problem the franchise faces is whether it'll be different from Nolan's trilogy and still be innovative (I can forsee directors copying TDKT).

It's going to also suck for whoever is the new Joker.

I have a feeling they'll wait a while to bring him out. But, yes, it will suck for them.

Normally once a movie is out in theaters then the TV ads stop by that point but with MOS already going into a 4th week I still see more TV ads, it's good to see WB actually caring and pushing more people into the theaters despite it's flaws.

OR just do what Heath did and rise to the occasion and come up with your own interpretation and give the audience a new fresh look with a new and improved clown For the right actor, that's what it's all about..

The only villain I'd watch a new interpretation of is Bane.

You can't have a series of Batman movies without the Joker at some point. Just like you can't have a series without Alfred. The mythos loses something powerful.

Yeah, it'll be tough to portray the character post-Heath. But I remember people thinking that Nicholson / Hamill couldn't be topped. I remember all the doubts about Heath that people had. Its an intimidating role, but not an impossible one.

In 10/15 years time... a live action version of, let's say the Arkham-verse Joker, could be very successful.

A good script + innovative director + talented, experimental actor = A great new Joker.

There are lots of ways to take the character. We just need an actor, like Heath, who is completely fearless.

Snyder should do all the WB films, because nobody does action like Snyder. Batman looks too weak without Snyder. Actually, I take that back....just leave Batman to an ordinary director, so Superman can look like he can kill Batman with a flick of his finger. I have no complaints with that.

Out of all possible DC Movies, I want Snyder on Green Lantern the most. Just imagine all the crazy stuff he could pull off with the Power Ring.

Yeah for all intents and purposes he should be able to, no "ifs", "ands", or "buts" about it.
