March 5, 2015: Warner Bros. CEO Talks About Superhero MoviesPrint

Warner Bros. Variety has published comments by Warner Bros. chairman-CEO Kevin Tsujihara from Wednesday's Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, in which he spoke about the WB's slate of upcoming Superhero films, and whether Hollywood is oversaturated with the genre.

    He dismissed any assertions that the business is suffering from superhero fatigue at Wednesday's Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference.

    "The key thing is that the movies and the television shows and the games, everything looks very different ...you have to be able to take advantage of the diversity of these characters," said Tsujihara.

Interestingly, Tsujihara also comments on the difference between the Superhero movies of DC/WB compared to that of Marvel...

    "The worlds of DC are very different," he said. "They're steeped in realism, and they're a little bit edgier than Marvel's movies."

    Part of the appeal of comic book movies is that the film business has become increasingly global in nature, with roughly 70% of box office coming from abroad on many major films. Characters like Superman arrive in China, Russia and other far-flung locales with built-in awareness, making the marketing campaigns easier.

    "The big franchises are becoming more and more valuable," said Tsujihara. "You don't have to explain to the consumer what a 'Batman v Superman' is."

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #22Print

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #22

Released Digitally: February 23, 2015

"Hellfire and Damnation"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Mike S. Miller
Inker: Mike S. Miller
Cover: Mike S. Miller with J. Nanjan

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    A ton of the same with this installment, but story was better on the whole. There is actual movement from the rote stance that the book has been locked into for the last few weeks. It would have been curious to see what Swamp Thing and Poison Ivy may have effected with more time, and the thought of Ivy as another exponent, perhaps even an avatar, of the Green is an interesting one. Still, barring that curiosity, she has served no purpose from introduction to being removed in this issue. It seems that the story has just gotten away from Buccellato. Injustice not only lacks a proper sequence to interest readers, it also lacks even the slightest of ideas. Poison Ivy and Swamp Thing working together is the first bit of stimulation in that direction Injustice has had in some time, and it's been extirpated much too quickly... unless continued somehow in the remaining installments. The rest of the story continues the prosaic plodding that the book has become, as it drags on to a single, slow beat that grows fainter and fainter. The 24 issue format isn't helping Buccellato, who will probably become stronger with more time, but today, in this moment, it appears more than he can handle, this weekly schedule of a popular series.
