Justice League Producer Jon Berg Wants Warner Bros To Release Ten Batman Movies In 2019
Last week, rumors hit the web claiming that Warner Bros was prepping a four-picture Bat-slate for 2019, planning to release Gotham City Sirens, Nightwing, Batgirl, and The Batman that year both in celebration of Batman's debut in Detective Comics 80 years prior and because, let's face it, everything sells better with Batman. Warner Bros hasn't commented officially on the rumors, but Justice League producer Jon Berg has upped the ante, taking to Twitter to realistically suggest that the studio release not four but ten Batman films that year.
It's tempting to take Berg's comments as sarcasm, but as the Entertainment Media has taught us, anything a Hollywood professional says on Twitter should be taken literally and be immediately turned into the subject of a click bait article. Making matters worse, DC Entertainment exec Geoff "Jeff" Johns responded to Berg's tweet, calling the ten film proposal too low, and suggesting the studio make twenty-seven Batman films that year instead.
According to math industry insiders, that would average out to more than two Batman films per month. It's unclear whether the market would be able to sustain that many Batman films, but there's only one way to find out, and that's by trying it. We're rooting for you, guys.
