Is Warner Bros. Relying Too Heavily on Batman?

I’ve been meaning to write on this topic for quite a while now, but since recently it came out in the news that next year’s Batman vs. Superman is supposedly even less a sequel to Man of Steel than we initially suspected and is much more a Batman story. But even if you discount the whole Batman vs. Superman issue, there’s still the matter of what they’re doing with their home video releases.

You have to go back four years to 2011 to find a year where Batman made up less than half of that year’s line-up, having only Batman: Year One released alongside the other actually non-Batman titles All Star Superman, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, and the live action Green Lantern.

Not only that, but I did enjoy the movie myself a lot more than many of my fellow reviewers who have seen it. It’s not an amazing movie by any means, but it really is worth a watch. And while you’re at it, click on the pic below to check out the neat little app attached to the movie.
