Time Warner profits jump in part due to Man of Steel returns:

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505123_162-57597355/time-warner-profits-jump/

Ratings at CNN jumped 70 percent among its target audience, and HBO viewership remained strong, helped by its popular "Game of Thrones" series and the Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra," Bewkes said.

Meanwhile, revenue at the company's Warner Bros. film and TV entertainment division increased 13 percent to $2.94 billion on strong ticket sales for "Man of Steel," ''The Hangover Part III" and "The Great Gatsby."

Those gains more than offset losses more than offset lower profit at the company's publishing division. Time Warner plans to spin off its ailing Time Inc. magazine unit by the end of this year. Revenue at the publishing division fell 3 percent to $833 million on both lower subscription and advertising sales.


So we'll definitely be seeing more MoS movies.

You should probably just go Marvel from now on Spektre.

Absolutely.

There's nothing about The Crow that I haven't seen in The Batman/The Shadow/Punisher stories done before and if Lee hadn't died during filming, I doubt the movie would have been as popular as it was. Same as Christopher Reeve; if he was alive and well today, all he would be remembered for is how sucky his \S/ franchise turned out to be. When these guys die early/tragically, fans put on the rose-colored glasses and set them for "canonize".

Personally, I want balls to the wall action movies, when it comes to Super-heroes. Everything before MoS is watered down with formulaic character development that we've all seen a million times before.

no one can accuse MoS of having any character development at all so no worries about it being watered down there :band

I don't know about Brandon Lee, but I'm a huge fan of Christopher Reeve and I'm sure he'd be admired without the need for tragedy ...

Without Christopher Reeve there would've been no MoS.

And Brandon Lee was badass in Rapid Fire.

Not really. X-Men and Spider-man are more responsible for Man of Steel than Superman was.
