    I sorta think they have the ability to do it the opposite way and make a bunch of money.

    Superman and Batman have never appeared together in live-action -- I think just those two heroes teaming...

    It didn't -- I think they wanted at least $500 million to consider it a success. However, a sequel was planned at some point, but numerous delays ended up causing that to fizzle out. I bet it was the...

    I can't speak to marketing dollars (and MOS definitely has spent a lot of money there), but Amazing Spider-Man had a budget of $230 million and Batman Begins had $150 million.

    I don't know, I'm...

    Actually, Superman Returns was pretty well received -- a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes means that 3 out of every 4 critics who watch it, liked it. It's not an amazing reception like Iron Man or The Dark...

    I hate to argue with a fellow Thor fan, but no way is $100 million opening "pathetic". Only 24 films have done it (domestically).

    And there are other instances of top superhero properties taking a...

    $400 million worldwide is a flop? It grossed more than Batman Begins and Captain America: The First Avenger, which are considered hits.

    It didn't make Spider-Man money like the studio wanted, but...

    What an odd comment. His movies have generated billions of dollars globally -- that's a lot of people who never get laid. If true, we should be worried that the global population will take a sudden...

    Honestly, it's a fun movie that will knock your socks off.

    Just don't worry about source fidelity and have some fun -- it gets the general beats of the Superman mythos right, if not the specifics....

    Reviews generally don't matter too much -- the insane success of the Transformers franchise is proof of that.

    The audience I saw this with was buzzing after the movie. With the reports of insane...

    Having seen the movie, I can tell you it matches the tone of the Nolan Batman movies. Until the heavy action scenes, it even looks more like a Nolan movie than a Snyder movie -- right down to the...

    Yet they often do. When the movie is genuinely good -- The Dark Knight(90%), Iron Man (89%), The Avengers (85%) -- the consensus among top reviewers is very positive. And that's what makes the...

    And for Top Reviewers, it's an even split -- only 50% positive ( Fresh: 4 | Rotten: 4 ).

    Granted, this number could change dramatically -- we're still in the early goings.

    Just because it's not unqualified praise doesn't mean it's "negative" -- the CBR review was positive, but it made a few criticisms along the way....

    Just my opinion, but it completely blows Avengers and every other superhero movie before it's action away. I really feel this is a high new standard for superhero movie action scenes.
