Yes vitieddie, he was running down the Avengers pretty hard leading up to the US release.  He's been pretty scarce since it opened though.  lol

Hanso, I definitely agree that WB should focus some serious time and energy into developing their DC Universe properties now that Harry Potter is gone.  I merely question their ability to do so in a competent manner.  WB is an odd bunch.  They've shown that they are capable of creating successful movie franchises.  On the whole, WB has more successful movies than failures.  Sadly, most of their DC Comics movies fall into the failures category. 

I certainly hope that the Avengers Aftermath will include a major restructuring of how WB handles the DCU.  I want to see a string of amazing movies based on the characters from their archive.  I grew up with their characters far more than I did with Marvel.  Business as usual is not going to cut it.  I want my Justice League movie, and I want it done right.  These iconic characters deserve the success which has eluded them for so long.

Like I said, WB and DC are just starting to synergize. Green Lantern was the first film after the company decided to dedicate resources specifically for DC properties, meaning that now like Marvel they can share creative talent. I think that's one of the positives about Marvel is that they'll have Quesada and Bendis along with others as consultants. Who knows how much input they have but at the very least I'd think they help the films stay as loyal as possible and pay nrespects to the comics
 
Wyldstaar, WB already restructured how they do business with DC, that's where DCE was borne from

So yeah GL, the only film to come out so far from the new WB/DC, wasn't a hit but it's still early on. The past is the past and most of those films weren't part of this new co-op that officially started in 2009.
  

hanso you're being too generous my man. Marvel's films have been out doing DC, TDK being the exception, on a regular. Capt.America and Begins have practically identical numbers,  Hulk trumped GL by 40mil on a 50mil smaller budget, Thor trumped SR by almost 60mil on a budget 120mil smaller. I just think you're way  way off in the "similar numbers" part especially when you take budgets into account

 Well I am a generous bastard.

I think the biggest problem that has hampered these films to date is the mandate for "realism" in the films produced.  Singer's X-Men films was more concerned with pathos and "identifiable" characters whose powers were grounded in some kind of scientific reality.  Hence, he was not making "fun" films but serious ones.  While I can see the merits I think it is a mistake to to ground comic book heroes in any kind of reality.    Of course, I have never made a movie so I can't claim to be right but I think the numbers generally bear me out.

I think I'm going to hate the Avengers movie before it is all said an done with.  Why?  Because it will be the spotlight on the wounds of why we don't have other similar type movies from WB, Sony & Fox with their respective properties.  Think of it as suffering from withdrawal after my Avengers hit.  :)

But seriously, Avengers was quite a feat, and I will be curious to see what effect that movie has 10 years from now on other films throughout the industry.  I hope it is a far reaching as it should be.

On another note, TDK is still my favorite comic book movie, and I am still anticipating TDKR much more than I was Avengers.  Lots of you will not agree with me, and that is perfectly fine.  I think of Avengers as eating my desert first, where as TDKR will be the main course that will really satisfy me come July.  Guess that makes Amazing Spider-Man the appetizer.  ;)
