DC To Deliver Low-Budget Superhero Movies Twice a Year

Suicide Squad, Booster Gold, Deathstroke, Team 7 and more could be headed to theaters as low-budget features of around $20-40 million. 

Warner Bros. hopes to churn out these movies twice a year, targeting spring and fall, to fill in time between their blockbuster releases normally set years apart.  Moving quickly, they've already called upon David Goyer to work up script treatments for the properties above.

So, what properties do you think will work for low-budget DC movies?  Or will any?  Can DC make this work, or will they churn out direct to DVD quality movies with sub-par acting and effects?

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
