Low Risk High Reward; WB/DC Looking To Move On Lower Budget Films
A couple of weeks ago, it was let out that any superhero film that Warner Brothers might want to do with DC was going to go through David Goyer. With that info a couple of film possibilities were mentioned to be in somewhat of development. That list includes Suicide Squad, Booster Gold, Deathstroke, and Team 7 just to name a few.
But just how is WB/DC going to get these films going? Well Bleeding Cool says they have the run down on the plan that they look to use to get these films off and running. Their plan is to go with a low risk high gain making these movies with minimal budgets. The one movie that was specifically mentioned to the site was The Suicide Squad. WB will be looking to get the film off the ground with a per-marketing budget of around 40 million. In comparison, DC’s latest movie, Man Of Steel, had a budget of 225 Million.
These smaller budget movies are also being targeted for Spring and Fall release dates as well. Leaving the heavy hitters like Batman and Superman to duke it out with the rest of the tent-pole movies in the Summer.
Not all of this has been 100% confirmed so take it with a grain of salt. However, Bleeding Cool has been pretty reliable in that past so the likely hood of this being the case is pretty strong. Based on the way it sounds WB/DC could be targeting 3-4 movies in total for years to come. With the big budget Summer blockbusters, and now these smaller Spring/Fall movies, it might look as if they will be gaining some traction on Marvel in the movie department. As always keep it locked here at Comic Book Therapy for the latest.
