Despite the fairly decent opening at the box office the opening weekend worldwide however it doesn’t hide the fact the movie was crap. It seems Warner Bros/DC Entertainment have realised the movie was a failure and in reality it was DC’s only blockbuster movie of this summer and with Nolan‘s Dark Knight reign coming to a end in less than 12 months time Warner are desperate to get another superhero franchise up and running as soon as.
Despite the movie raking in worldwide less than what it took to make worldwide the sequel is going to happen and in Los Angeles Times Warner Bros President Jeff Robinov has been chatting about the prospect of movie 2 and what he expects the sequel to be like and he say’s it’s going to be ‘edgier and darker’,plus a new director will be in place too, here’s he what he said:
“We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience. To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.”
Personally I just found the whole movie a disaster, it felt like someone got a hold of the script ripped it all apart and then decided cellotape everything back together but failed as it was like several scripts that where put together but made no sense. It was also a comic I read very little off but speaking to The Peoples Movies Dexter who is a big fan of the comicbook it was nothing like the comic apart from the characters names. Due to what Nolan did to the re create the Batman franchise it seems that any failed superhero movie that studios try to resurrect its the norm to take the Batman route of dark and edgier approach but who said it would work for every comic book film? Captain America has been a success but that movie hasn’t taken that route, but does taking the darker route actually mean the movie will be more successful? One other approach is not having the first movies scribes Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim creating a script for movie 2 which they have apparently done , rip it up start again with new writers and as the saying goes too many cooks spoil the broth, too many movies mimicking The Batman franchise visual style can ruin it for every one!
