"It's DC's greed man. WB is a partner/owner of DC and they can cut them a licensing deal (how about some revenue sharing instead to get this done)? DC is horrible at cross promotion. Look at how much sales of Walking Dead, Scott Pilgrim and such do when there are multiple media platforms for a character/property. DC wants all their money up front and doesn't look at the big picture, i.e. popularity of the property increases due to reaching a wider audience, etc. .. and they can't for the life of them wonder why they are always second best in popularity... they aren't going to gain a younger following for their characters in just comic books! That's why DC comic fans are mainly all old men... other than the bat stuff because the movies helped introduce a whole new fan base! "
that sounds like what happened.
i do hope ww tv show happens and its nothing like smallvile.
I don't thinksuperman himself is the problem but rather the writers are the problem they use the he's too powerfull as an excuse to hide the fact that they can't think of good stories. joe kelly,greg rucka, grant morrison and surprisingly garth mr. superheros suck ennis have told good superman stories thus proving they can be told.
