Justice League Film Depends on Man of Steel Box Office

Well, this news really isn't surprising at all. Variety did a very long article on Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov and talked about the franchises they have with Hangover, Hobbit, yada yadada yada, ahh here is the part, they state that the life of Justice League film is depending on how well Man of Steel does with everyone and makes a pretty penny. Variety States

Further out, the studio's planning a "Justice League" tentpole -- encompassing DC Comics mainstays Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and the Green Lantern -- on the order of Marvel's "The Avengers." Will Beall is scripting but no director has been attached yet.

Stakes are high for "Man of Steel." Other than Nolan's Batpics, Warners has not been able to effectively exploit the DC library. Its 2011 "Green Lantern" underperformed, and a "Justice League" film wouldn't likely be in theaters before 2015, as Warner's top brass has indicated that they are awaiting the results of "Man of Steel," which opens June 14, before moving further ahead.
 There you have it. Nothing really different than people talking business. They just really need to have a better approach at casting, picking directors, and getting the films all together in same universe. Green Lantern failed at pretty much all those, but Man of Steel is shaping up to be rather good looking. Just have to wait and see if we get to the team gear up together.
