Because it wasn’t enough for Warner Bros. to announce nine new DC superhero movies today, the studio has also announced they have stand-alone Batman and Superman films planned as well. All of these are announcements today are to please investors and let them know that the studio is on firm ground with its biggest franchises. The Batman and Superman films aren’t a total surprise, although it will be interesting to see where Warner Bros. tries to slot them. Keep in mind that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill want to do other things with their time than wear superhero costumes, and so it will probably be a matter of scheduling. Additionally, from 2016 onwards, the studio has at least two superhero movies planned, and if any of these solo films is mammoth hit, it could rearrange things completely. If Wonder Woman kills at the box office, do you think the studio will sit on their hands for at least three years just because they mapped out a schedule in 2014? All of this is fluid, and that includes the “World’s Finest”.
