Leave it to the top boss at Warner Brothers, to say it like it is. Speaking at a conference today (via Variety), Kevin Tsujihara couldn't have been more clear about the studio's plans to build a connected cinematic universe. But he also made sure to mention what makes films like Batman v Superman different from their Marvel counterparts:
“The worlds of DC are very different,” (..) “They’re steeped in realism, and they’re a little bit edgier than Marvel’s movies.”
Tsujihara also dismissed concerns that the film industry is suffering from superhero fatigue, crediting the global recognition of the DC characters:
“The big franchises are becoming more and more valuable,” (..) “You don’t have to explain to the consumer what a ‘Batman v Superman’ is.”
He went on to talk about cyber-security at Warner Brothers in light of the Sony hack attack and much more. Read it all over at Variety. Killing it, Superman!
UPDATE 3/6: Nice one, Larry Fong..
I certainly hope so. RT @TheMarySue: Warner Bros CEO says DC’s upcoming movies will be “edgier” than Marvel’s http://t.co/evjsxJYcWj
