THR:
It's Official: Jeff Robinov Out at Warner Bros.
The executive is not part of a realignment of the studio's film group that elevates Sue Kroll, Greg Silverman and Toby Emmerich.

THR:
Warner Bros., Legendary End Talks to Renew Pact
Eight years after they joined in a co-financing arrangement, negotiations have broken down, with Legendary continuing talks to move to Universal or Sony.

Warner Bros. Closes $450 Million Financing Deal With Dune, Brett Ratner's RatPac (Exclusive)
UPDATED: The deal will cover Warners' entire movie slate up to 75 titles, and would last three or four years.

The new RatPac-Dune deal would be different than Warners' arrangement with Legendary, which could cherry-pick the movies it financed. Multiple sources say the arrangement also will cover a portion of Man of Steel, the pricey Superman reboot that opened in June.

Spring And Fall – The New Slots For DC Entertainment Low Budget Superhero Films



A closer look at Warner's ongoing DC 'problem,' and one possible solution
Of course you want a 'Justice League' movie, but this isn't how you get there

Maybe DC should actually go the route of Crisis. It would be expensive, and would 5 years, but here's what I'm thinking:

* Make the Superman/Batman movie into Superman/Batman: Crisis. The movie would start like Crisis on Infinite Earths. It would establish that there is a big, cosmic problem that needs more than one hero to solve. DC would need Margot Kidder and Adam West to cameo. The enemy would be Brainiac, who would tell Kal-El that the end is coming, and that the destroyed Kryptonian colonies from Man Of Steel were from him: he was trying to "preserve" them as data before the end of the universe. After credit sequence would feature Psycho Pirate and Brandon Routh as Superman-Prime.

* Next, have a Green Lantern movie: Green Lantern: Countdown. It would have to be big budget, with a . Let Ryan Reynolds still be GL, but this time the enemy is the Sinestro Corps. GL gets help from Green Arrow and Flash from the show Arrow. At the end of the movie, The Flash from the old 90s show appears sking for help. They ask what the problem is. Before he can answer, Superman-Prime shows up, kills the 90s Flash, smiles, and disappears. GL says they have to find Superman. After the credits, Superman is asks by someone if "It is done". Superman response "Yes. This universe will be yours."

* The next "tent-pole" movie would be Batman/Superman: Infinite Crisis. This time, I would put in Tom Welling, Michael Keaton, and Green Arrow from Smallville. I would even cameo Huntress from Birds of Prey. The main bad guy would be Forerunner. She would open rifts that would bring alternate version of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman to fight the "new" versions. They would win the fight, of course, but at the end of the movie GL, the new Arrow, Flash, and Linda Carter would show up, stating "we need your help". The after credit scene would finally show the Anti-Monitor.

* The last tent-pole would be Justice League: Final Crisis. Superman-Prime, Sinistro, Forerunner, and Psycho Pirate would fight the combined team of heroes from the earlier movie. Big explosions, worlds, ending, etc. At some point, the Anti-Monitor would come from our universe with those "shadow beings" from Crisis on Infinite Earths. There would be an epic battle. Eventually, Superman-Prime would turn good, and join Tom Welling and the current Superman in fighting the Anti-Monitor. He would sacrifice himself to save the universe, but in doing so ONLY LEAVE the current movie universe as the "real" one.

Its a lot, and it would need serious fleshing out, but it would put all of the movies and shows ever made into one DC movie "multiverse". Meaning all of the versions all exist, and they are all heroes.

By the time Time-Warner finally gets things the way fans AND audiences seem to want them, this whole superhero movie trend will be dead or on its way out...
Meanwhile Disney gets to ride the wave and soak the bubble for all it's worth.
