As John and Jon noted on yesterday’s mailbag that conglomeration of studios and diversification of characters is the new trend for comic book movies, do you think Warner Bros. would be willing to share their roster of DC comics characters with Universal or Paramount the same way Disney and Sony are doing it with Spider-Man?

Love all you do ever yday. Thank you for helping my love for Pop Culture grow every day! My friend and I have a bet based on box office results, and I would love to know who you think is going to win. He has Rogue One only, and I have Moana plus Fantastic Beasts. We are only counting money grossed for the film in their first four weeks of release. Who is going to win the bet?
