Spring And Fall – The New Slots For DC Entertainment Low Budget Superhero Films

Suicide_Squad_cvr_24Bleeding Cool already mentioned how, with David Goyer attached, Warners were looking at movie treatments for the likes of Suicide Squad, Booster Gold, Deathstroke, Team 7 and more.

Well, it looks like this will be DC Entertainment's big news for 2014.

A series of lower-prominence comic books being turned into relatively lower budget movies.

Suicide Squad is one specifically mentioned as only needing a $40 million budget, pre-marketing. Some could be made for as little as $20 million.

And with two-a-year scheduled for Spring and Fall/Autumn, Warners can expand the Man Of Steel/Batman universe significantly, and make a decent profit in the process.

So… what comics do you want to get made at that level?
