Will "Man of Steel" Success Create More Superhero Movies From DC Comics?

"Man of Steel" premiered this weekend and was extremely successful. The Superman movie made an estimated $125 million so far. In the U.S. and Canada it is the second biggest weekend opening of the year behind Marvel's "Iron Man 3".

This means there is a strong possibility that Marvel has a new rival. DC Comics is noticing the immense potential of their superheroes going on screen, but for some reason there has been a lag in the production of superhero films on their end as well as Warner Brothers.

Seeing the huge financial success of this film, DC and Warner Brothers could take over as the "superhero film franchise". However, Marvel (owned by Disney) currently makes many more of these films so DC would definitely need to catch up.

Batman is a DC hero and has already had much film success. Would you watch the movies of other DC heroes like Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Swamp Thing?

    I choose yes because they've been claiming to make a Justice League movie. It would be certainly hard to just make them pop up. Plus doing it like The Avengers it would make Hollywood much more money.

    only because they can milk money from the franchise, not because of any real talent in hollywood.

    I can't beleive superman did decent, as the acting was flat and there was no real depth to the characters.

    Personally, Man of Steel is one of the worst movies I've seen to date. But I'm saying that it'll create more successful comic-based superheroes because I'm desperately hoping they come out with a blockbuster about the Flash. I LOVE that guy.

    But if they do, that’s one movie that you won’t be able to watch on an iOS device.

    I think that The Dark Knight has already opened that door. Man of Steel does have me excited to see what they come out with next, though.
    To answer your question at the end, I'd see a movie of Wonder Woman or Swamp Thing. I'd skip on Aquaman :)

    Really, nobody cares about DC anyways. Well, except for batman ;) . The rest is just pretty dull, not movie worthy.

    Its a good possibility. Hopefully Marvel follows suit as their last several movies were made for children only and I personally like super hero movies to be somewhat dark with violence similar to the recent Batman movies.

    However, seems to me that the Marvel franchises have more depth and will still probably have more films,

    The main thing that bothered me was the flashback to Clark’s childhood at the very end.

    Why was he wearing a towel-cape? The only reason kids wore towels as capes back then was because they were pretending to be Superman or some other caped superhero, but supposedly that concept didn’t even exist in that world when he was a kid!

    I hope so. Why should Marvel have all the fun? I'd like to see; Wonder Woman , The Flash, Hawkman, Shazam/Capt. Marvel and maybe the Legion of Superheroes if they leave out that lame Matter Eater Lad!! Worse than Aquaman!

    Wonder Woman would be the movie to make. Big problem is that who could really play her. Lot of pretty ladies, but none of them have a real Amazon body. I have seen Meagan Fox name often, she is pretty, but her body is too soft looking. Wonder Woman must have hips and shoulders. Build more like a Serena Williams but taller.

    The biggest mistake of this whole DC/Warner franchise has been the absense of Superman cameos in the Batman movies. We don't need to see much of SM. Just a fly by and Batman mention something cranky about him.

    After WW, I think Martian Manhunter would be the coolest movie to make, but Superman should be given a role in it. Flash and the new uptight "Soul Brother" Green Latern should have a buddie movie together.

    Instead of doing a "Super Friends" movie I think the major players (Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Flash & Green Latern) should make a major entry into the next Batman movie. Keep secret, so fans would be totally surprised. Also forget Hawk Girl, she would be too goofy on film.

    DC sucks. They made Green Lantern when obviously a better movie would have been Wonder Woman or the Flash. LONG LIVE MARVEL!!!!!

    Do we really have to do this? This isn't a matter of Publisher loyalty.

    DC: Superman 3 & 4, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, Green Lantern

    Marvel: Fantastic Fours (All 3), Captain America (1990) The Punisher (Travolta? C'mon.), Daredevil, X-3, X-men Origins Wolverine, Hulk, Spider-Man 3 (Arguably the entire triliogy)

    Stop thinking like a fanboy and use your logic. They've both had their share of stinkers. But they've both shined with Batman Begins, Batman '89, Superman 1-2, Ironman series, Avengers, Thor, Captain America. So you can't write one off for a few terrible movies.

    I'm still waiting for my Doctor Strange, proper X-Men, Eternals, Iron Fist, and Nova (It HAS to be Richard Rider though) movies

    The reason why I sound like a fan boy because I am a proud Fan boy! I am Marvel all of the way! But I can be honest as long as Fox is allowed to make Marvel movies DC will always have a dog in the fight. I don't know how any company could mess up an X-men movie but leave it to Fox they did it! The screwed up the X-Men. The Fantastic Four are lame anyway so I'll give them a pass on that one if they hire a GREAT director maybe they could make a good FF movie but NEVER A great one. DAREDEVIL in the right hands would have been epic but oh well..... FOX enough said. A lot of times I make comments as a jab in the side to two of my closest Sodahead
    friends here that are DC and Star Trek fans ( I'm a Star Wars Geek) The last Star Trek movie was awesome and the last Star Wars movie was not so awesome but I'll never admit it to them! And as far as DC is concerned I LOVED Smallville lol
