And spoiler alert... it has a LOT to do with the success of the Avengers. Now, WB has had spotty luck with their DC comics based movies. Chris Nolan's Batman films (so far) have been their only solid hit, where as Superman Returns failed to grab an audience (their fault for not making Darkseid or Braniac a villain... clearly they were going to save that for a sequel that never materialized), and Green Lantern's bloated budget prevented it from even becoming a mild victory. And They were fooling themselves with Jonah Hex. Only die hard comic geeks that refuse to see those movies know who Jonah Hex is. Marvel's had a solid series of hits. While the quality has varied wildly, they seem to all have done pretty well, some did outstanding at the Box office. Hey. Maybe this is why they're actually trying to get that Wonder Woman movie off the ground.
