We here at Gabbing Geek LOVE box office reports. Ok….JUST me and Ryan. Everyone else seems to hate them. We’ve talked a lot about it the last few weeks, so let’s look at the winners and losers of this year’s box office as we wait for the Martian to officially kick off the Fall movie season.
Unlike my fellow Gabbing Geeks Jenny and Watson, I never got to see the new documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? complete with a director Q&A. Mainly because I was about 3500 miles away from the theatre the night they went. Anyway, I’ll catch the movie soon when it hits the Blu-Rays and other consumable outlets.
But that potential Nic Cage/Tim Burton collaboration wasn’t the only Superman related movie to come oh so close and fall apart. Way back in 2009, Warner Bros and DC were on the verge of making a Justice League film starring Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as the Flash and Common as Green Lantern. Obviously this film never happened. But why?
