That's a pretty bold claim. They should bring it, not sing it.

Doesn't help we have to wait another 2 years before we can properly discuss what they've brought us.

Not really comparable tbh. MOS saved DC's biggest icon. The Iron Man movies made a B-List character into an Icon.

Plus they've just taken sooo long since MOS to give us the next movie in the DCU. Compared with Marvel who had like 4-5 different big franchises in that time.

It's just a feeling I have. WB is finally taking things seriously. Marvel's first 10 films made mucho dinero. I can see dcs doing the same.

Man of Steel isn't a billion dollar franchise yet. It will be. JL will be. Suicide Squad? Probably not. The name itself doesn't exactly comfort parents to bring their kids. Wait, so far they only have Man of Steel. None of the others have come out yet so there's nothing to track. What if all the first movies will hit Green Lantern or Hulk sales and flop?

Tbh, I don't think superman can reach 1b. Close, but not quite. You don't need to be kid friendly to gross a lot of money. Nolans joker wasn't exactly kid friendly.

the other films can flop, but it looks like WB is getting top talent to direct these films, so that helps.

WB are going all out, I'll give them that.

But saying they're on track to beat Marvel's record is seriously jumping the gun at this point. BvS sure has the potential to do IM3 or Avengers type numbers though. But potential is one thing and the end result is what matters.

As for the rest, remember with huge stars comes an even huger budget. And with unknown properties and no Brand name(as of yet) comes a hell of a lot of marketing. SS will probably have to make like $500Mill WW just to break even.

I'm not comparing these 2 studios or anything. Just their first 10 movies. Marvel released the numbers for their first 10 films. I think DC can beat that number. Like I said earlier, MOS made more money than most of those 10 films. Batman V Superman will make even more.

Suicide Squad will do good numbers, WW has the potential to do Thor numbers or even better, and JLA could do Avengers numbers or close. When it's all said and done, WBs first 10 COULD surpass marvels. I'm not saying that's a guarantee, just that it has the potential and with the way things are turning out, pretty likely.

Remember, you don't always need to do a billion to beat that number. Hulk, Thor, Cap, Guardians, and the first 2 Iron Man movies didn't do a billion.

There's absolutely no doubt BvS will make crap loads of money. To keep that momentum going, the movie has to be good quality.

Yeah exactly. And if WB is serious about a Marvel level brand name for it's DC Products then BvS needs to be more than just "good." It needs to be "f***ing Awesome!"

That's all subjective, though. The majority of the people probably liked MOS. You get a lot of love on the internet and you get a lot of hate, but the general audience probably loved it. Seeing as it scored pretty high in the DVD/Blue Ray sales.

I think it's the same with the Transformers movies. A lot of critics and internet hated it, but the general audience likes those movies pretty well. So far, it's the only movie this year that did a billion dollars.

Hey I liked MOS. But that's not really got much to do with how big the DCU brand name will be.

Thing with Transformers is the first one was so good, every time there's a new one people want to watch it in hopes that the new one will catch the magic of the first one again. But the sequels keep disappointing. Either that or people just can't get enough of giant robots bashing each other Lol.

It's the same with the Iron Man movies IMO.

lol. They want Karl Urban as a supporting actor to Momoa? Karl Urban as Aquaman would be far and above better for fans and the movie.
