WB Film Chief On DC vs. Marvel: "You'll See The Difference"

Warner Bros. film chief, Greg Silverman, just gave The Hollywood Reporter some insightful news on where the studio is headed when it comes to the DC Universe. It only makes us more excited for Comic-Con (5 weeks away!) and the promo that will follow leading up to Batman v Superman.

How will you differentiate the DC Universe from what Marvel is doing?

We have a great strategy for the DC films, which is to take these beloved characters and put them in the hands of master filmmakers and make sure they all coordinate with each other. You'll see the difference when you see Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Justice League and all the things that we are working on. (Us: squeeeeeee!)

There were some complaints that the Batman v Superman trailer was too dark. Is this a trademark of a DC superhero film in the post-Dark Knight era?

There is intensity and a seriousness of purpose to some of these characters. The filmmakers who are tackling these properties are making great movies about superheroes; they aren't making superhero movies. And when you are trying to make a good movie, you tackle interesting philosophies and character development. There's also humor, which is an important part. (Us: Clark is bringing it!!).

Silverman also talks about Wonder Woman on the big screen and much more. Read the rest at THR. Today Warner Bros. announced James Wan will direct Aquaman. Here's more on that. And USA Today has a nice wrap from Toronto, where Batman has been showing up on the set of Suicide Squad. No Supes in sight, but we're keeping an eye out for him... just in case ;)

Right now Henry is in London looking his happy, sexy-self and enjoying a bit of a break, before he returns to the U.S. next month to promote Batman v Superman at Comic-Con (you know that's happening!). About a month later, we will finally get to see his suave and funny side when The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens in theaters (August 14).

LET'S DO THIS SUMMER.. We're counting down the days, Henry!


    SuperCav-El <3 <3 <3 U :D

  2. Will Henry be doing any more promoting for Man From Uncle before its release?

    1. Of course! - Press junkets, and likely magazine shoots/interviews, TV appearances. A lot of good stuff on the way.

  3. Definitely feeling DC as opposed to Marvel were as the article said DC has a seriousness about it. I feel DC is for the big boys, not for the soft at heart. DC brings it and at the same time makes you fall in love with the superheroes, sweeps you off your feet. This is going to be huge! DC will be the game changer.

    1. Yes! It will...and I'm really excited about the future in DC. There upcoming projects are going to be insane. I can't to see JL come together:D see them come to life.
      Thanks HCN, i love the updates on DC.
      I<3RiverinARedCape;) lol...

    2. You are welcome! - It's a lot to keep track of, but doing my/our best to bring you updates as it relates to Henry and Supes. Yeah!

    3. It's going to be awesome when JL comes together, especially with Henry in the mix. Can't wait to see them interact with each other:D
      And I second that jai - thank you very much HCN ! Love love the DC updates as well;)

    4. "DC will be the game changer" alright! - Just thinking about the action scenes with Supes and the rest of the JL gives me goosebumps. #SupesRulesJL (I can't keep up with your #!!). :P
