I don't know. How many times can they do a Batman cartoon?

I never even got a chance to see Green Lantern, but I know it was being done by the same guys that did the 90's Batman Animated Series. Wonder why it got cancelled.

@Darth Bob - MOS hasn't finished it's run yet. So let's wait to add up the numbers.

Also financial numbers alone do not make a film good. If we are going by numbers alone that must mean that the Star Wars Prequels and Matrix sequels must be considered great films because they made a lot of money too right?

Iron Man II came off way too comedic, the plot made very little sense. Also the best parts were the last 20 minutes and the tag at the end.

@Rizing - I agree with you I don't know why GL was cancelled as well as Young Justice.

@DarthBob - Also I'm a fan of all comic books Marvel and DC included. Also no need to act like a child with name calling here. We are all fans.

 Darth bob , fuck rotten tomatoes, and the retards that listen to that crap. Ironman 2 was o.k not the best ironman 3 a f.ucking joke, hulk was a mess and incredible hulk so, so. Thor could have been better, and cap. Was o.k. . Please stop with that rotten tomatoes said this and gave it that?? It's a fact that just because rotten tomatoes say one thing still most people don't see eye to eye with that s.hit.. and i get it it's your opinion and i think it's a  stupid one... not trying to start a fight it's just my opinion also and it may suck as well as your opinion.. MOS was f.ucking great, !!!!

Darthbob likes to come on the boards and start shit. Especially about anything DC. You guys are being baited. 

Also everytime DC announces a new animated series its mostly unanimously panned on the boards. Go back and look at the boards for Young Justice and Green Lantern. Before they hit everybody was crying bloody murder. Why are they doing young justice instead of more justice league? I don't like the animation. Etc, etc. Now it's why did DC cancel YJ and GL. I think this show looks interesting and I'm going to give it a chance.

 Someone else wrote this post, and I have to agree that Marvel is the "Top Dog" now, i have checked the details and they SEEM to be correct.....

"In ’07, ‘Superman: Doomsday’ grossed $9.4 million. It was followed by ‘Batman: Gotham Knights’ hitting $8 million the next year. In ’09 when ‘Wonder Woman’ grossed $7 million, it was considered a failure and they scrapped a proposed sequel. Their last three titles grossed the following: ’12′s ‘The Dark Knight Returns: Part 1′ – $2.6 million; ’13′s ‘The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2′ – $1.4 million; ’13′s ‘Superman Unbound’ – $1 million. ‘Superman Unbound’ was released in the midst of the advertising saturation for MAN OF STEEL, and it was their biggest failure to date. ‘BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS: PARTS 1 & 2′ received phenomenal reviews, many from major news outlets and publications – a first for DCUOM productions. Many praised it as superior to last year’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ It had no impact on sales. Warner-Bros. shut down their entire ‘Direct-To-Video Original Production Division’ over a year ago, and scaled back their direct-to-video animated titles to just DC and a few other Hannah-Barbarah characters. If the newly installed heads of the division can’t turn sales around in the next year, odds are high the DC Universe Original Movie division may end up being shut down."

 
"Perhaps DC needs to look at how Marvel Animation has turned itself around. Licensing their characters to Japanese anime company Mad House for series and original films has proved a success. Marvel’s line of amped-up motion comics are also a huge hit online and home video. Their new Spider-Man series is traditional animation, and a hit. And, their new traditional animation Avengers series has kids and fans pumped. DC used to outclass Marvel’s animation efforts."
 
"Looks like Marvel now rules both live action films and traditional animation."

 I'd like to join the raging debate on who's better Marvel or DC but unfortunately I don't have the time as I am all ready involved in an equally serious discussion about who's better Chef Boyardee or Franco American.

 @DarthoftheDead, the person who posted that gave the financial numbers for DC's animated films, but where are the financial profit numbers for Marvel's animated films that they've licensed out to Japanese anime companies? For comparison.

I'll give Beware the Batman a chance. I find myself going back and renting the old JLA cartoon episodes, so I'm up for something new. And BTW the GL and Young Justice cartoons were cancelled because not enough toys were sold. The production cost of those shows rely on kids buying the toys, and not enough kids were buying.
