Now Batman Vs. Superman Compared To Man of Steel: "Suits Nervous"

We've all heard the rumor WB is worried about Batman Vs. Superman; then we all heard about the perceived notion WB is concerned about the popcorn Marvel movie audience, and now Latino Review is adding their two cents.

According to the site, "concerned" is a better word than "worried," which makes sense as Batman Vs. Superman is a new movie with a super high budget.

It's said the budget for Batman Vs. Superman has "ballooned" north of $400 million, and for the movie to be considered a success, it would have to make more than a billion dollars at the box office.

According to an "insider," problems could arise with Batman Vs. Superman as - similar to Man of Steel - it could split the audience. It's said Man of Steel wasn't the "universal crowd pleaser" WB wanted, which is a "trend" that could continue with Batman Vs. Superman.

It's further said Batman Vs. Superman may not be for everyone or as easily accessible, which is making the suits a bit nervous. It's said Zack Snyder may have made "another difficult film," with DC having to keep a close eye on what works and what doesn't.

Regarding the comparison to Man of Steel, as I previously pointed out, Man of Steel started out with a bang but ended with a whimper as it only made $668 million - and not the billion WB hoped for - which is why Batman was added to the sequel.

Latino Review goes on to state Justice League is "absolutely happening" following Batman Vs. Superman, and that the solo Ben Affleck Batman movie is not replacing Justice League's release date (JL is already in production).

Depending on how well Batman Vs. Superman does or does not do, it's said the Justice League movie universe could end up getting retooled.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.


Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
