"You Don't Have To Explain To The Consumer What A Batman v Superman Is"


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..

  1. This is good news. There were concerns that the movie industry is dying, that they are more and more remakes and studios are only willing to bank on known money makers, like for example "hunger games and fifty shades and so on. That they are less and less original story lines, which is true but the super hero universe is endless, vast and have been around for more than 75 years! So DC and Marvel will go on forever, the fans are countless. Henry will continue in that beautiful red cape for a while....wink
    Thanks so much for the update Hcn.

  4. DC will go on, Awesome. I'm such a fan of the comics and it's amazing when they put these comics on screen and we get to see our favorite superheroes in motion. I'm glad the industry is doing well and I get to enjoy these awesome heroes on the big screen.
    Thanks Hcn as well as Henry for the updates.
