The unparalleled success of this summer’s Marvel movie The Avengers, coupled with the interest in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, has shined a bright spotlight on DC Entertainment, a division of Warner Bros. If Marvel can make billions with second tier superheros like Iron Man and Thor, why hasn’t DC done the same thing?
They’re trying. The Internet rejoiced when Warner Bros. announced they were finally pushing ahead with their big superhero team up film, Justice League. At the same time writers were revealed to be working on a Wonder Woman movie and we’ve all heard about long rumored films featuring The Flash, Shazam and others.
Still, though things are in motion, the only DC character with a movie in production – or scheduled at all – is Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, a film which will have its coming out party at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
