September 2, 2014: Total Film Magazine on the Dawn of DC MoviesPrint

Total Film #224 Issue #224 of Total Film magazine features "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" photos of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the cover, with an interior article titled "The Dawn of DC".

The six page article discusses all three characters, while examining the possible characters who will make up the Justice League in a film about DC's greatest superheroes.

In regards to Henry Cavill as Superman the article says, "The Man of Steel has been a member of the Justice League of America ever since they first teamed up in 1960 to defeat alien starfish Starro the Conqueror (The Brave And The Bold #28), even if he was too busy in outer spase to assist on that occasion. But will he be its leader in Zack Snyder's film?" Total Film asks. "Not if Batman has anything to do with it..."

You'll find the article in the October issue of Total Film magazine.

I love DC Comics and their characters. I really do. Ever since I was a kid. But let's face it, right now Warner Bros. is just playing catch-up to Disney/Marvel.

When you look at it Warners has owned DC for about 40 years now and they've had all this time to explore and exploit these characters, but all we've gotten are some goofy live action TV shows and movies (as well as some great animated ones).
The only reason they're kicking things into high gear is because of all the success Kevin Feige and Marvel Productions are currently having. Most of their movies for other studios have been financially profitable (Spider-Man, X-Men, etc) and they kept the best for themselves (Capt. America, Thor, Iron Man). Those were such big hits that the greedy rats at Disney bought the entire company and got the rights to the most prized possesion: The Avengers.

WB on the other hand never needed to go into business with other studios since they owned DC outright since the 70's but they squandered their opportunities (Swamp Thing? Steel?? Jonah Hex anyone???). Unless it's Batman related, it seems like they weren't interested.

I hope they're successful with their future movies, but it seems like a case of "Too little too late".

For the record, Marvel's most prized possessions are Spider-Man and the X-Men, but I see what you're saying.

On the other hand, does it really matter if they're playing catch-up or not? DC has been killing it with animation for the past 20 years, they've been killing it with their television for 10 (Smallville, Arrow, even Human Target, and now The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine, possibly Supergirl), their comics are still doing well, and in terms of film they just released not only a new Superman film that performed well (not amazing, but certainly not terrible) but also a trilogy of Batman films that have yet to be surpassed in terms of comic book film quality (there's also Watchmen that I would add to that). With DC coming out with more live action television and starting up their film universe at their own pace (which is smart so that it's not rushed), I don't think it really matters about who started first, I think all that matters is who has the better product and that's all in the eyes of the viewer anyway.

I think we can all agree that no matter if the Avengers are super-popular right now, that eventually that'll fade. Superman, Batman, and even Spider-Man have always been popular, and will always continue to be.
