I never once said that DC/WB should stop making super hero films at all.
And I never one said that you did. In your original post you said:
I was thinking that if DC and WB didn't primarily rely on the Batman or Superman franchises or any other super heroes that they could do easily do other genres than Marvel could.
So I was simply arguing that point. If Warner Bros. didn't "primarily rely" on Batman, Superman, or any other superheroes, then it stands to reason that they would have to shift the focus of their DC film properties to other genres, which is part of your original argument as well. If you were to go back and reread my replies, I think that you will find that I never once actually implied what you think that I implied. Just that in order to do what your are implying, they would have to dramatically shift the way that they adapt DC properties to film. You posed a question and I answered that question with facts. If that isn't what you wanted, then I'm sorry I brought them into this discussion.
I specifically said that if they were to try it and do it right, they could give Marvel a run for their money in the long term-and I corrected myself by stating that. You're making it sound like this was meant to be an overnight success scheme.
Ok, well in your hypothetical situation Warner Bros. would have to begin adapting a bunch of non-superhero DC properties that are primarily known exclusively to comics fans and are independent of each other over the course of an undetermined amount of time. Meanwhile, Marvel Studios will continue producing movies based on characters that the general public either know about or are associated with characters that they know and are interconnected with the larger, shared Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'm sorry Draco, unless Warner Bros. were to somehow get James Cameron to invent some type of new technology for making a film and then use that to direct one of these hypothetical non-superhero movies, I just don't think that this is the type of scenario that Marvel will ever really have to worry about. And I am saying this knowing that DC has some fantastic non-superhero properties out there that would be amazing on the big screen in one form or the other.
I never said that, buddy.
Don't call me buddy, guy!
