WB Wants More Batman, Less Superman


Rumor has come down today that WB has mandated DC Films to focus more on Batman and less on Superman in their cinematic universe.

This comes as the latest rumor from Heroic Hollywood.

"The latest hot rumor I am hearing is that Warners is requesting more Batman be put into the movie and less Superman.  Supposedly, Ben Affleck’s Batman is so good that he is blowing Henry Cavill’s Superman right off the screen.Like it or not, Batman has become the crown jewel of the DC Universe. Look at what is going in the video-game space with the Arkham series, or the fast-tracked Batman Lego movie spin off.  Let alone the upcoming Suicide Squad is all Batman villains/characters. It is apparent how much more valuable the Dark Knight currently is than Superman.With Ben Affleck riding high off of Argo and Gone Girl, he is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. So it only makes sense Warners would want more of the potent combination of him and the Batman. The studio has already ordered a standalone Batman film that Affleck will direct."

Even as a Batman fan, this makes me a little sad. Superman is the consummate, archetypal superhero and the progenitor of the DC universe. He’s more than just important, he’s vital to framing what they need to do onscreen. Imagine the Avengers coming out as a film without Captain America.

It’s worse than that. I sincerely hope WB continues to emphasize The Trinity because juxtaposing Batman with Superman and Wonder Woman being the middle ground of both is the heart and soul of DC Comics.
