Justice League depending on Man of Steel's success?

Apparently so.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov basically said the greenlight on the 2015 Justice League release depends on the success Zack Snyder's new Superman film, Man of Steel. If the movie does well they will move forward. If not then I guess they will scrap Justice League until they can do a better lead into it and plan a little more. I personally think they should do the latter regardless, but you can't tell Hollywood anything. They just want money. It isn't about releasing quality films anymore.

This statement most likely happened mainly due to how lackluster WB's DC adaptations have been apart from the Batman trilogy Christopher Nolan gave us. Green Lantern was a huge disappointment in 2011, Superman Returns basically bombed in 2006, they haven't been able to get anything off the ground regarding Wonder Woman, we can't possibly forget how awful Catwoman was in 2004, etc.. Even Snyder's other DC film Watchmen got some pretty harsh criticism in 2009. I'm not surprised they are putting the fate of Justice League on Man of Steel, but I feel like they might be deceived. People are going to see Man of Steel regardless just because it's Superman. There are a lot of people excited for it. Even if the movie sucks it will still rake in a decent amount at the box office. That is my prediction.

Man of Steel opens in theaters on June 14, 2013.
