Seems DC Comics and Warner Bros. think Superman is "damaged goods" and "uncool".
They're the exact words used by Mr. Gumpert, the film industry expert witness DC Comics called to the stand during their on-going court case with the Siegel family over the rights to Superman.
Page 10 of the 30-page court document reads:
- Defendants' film industry expert witness, Mr. Gumpert, termed Superman as "damaged goods," a character so "uncool" as to be considered passé, an opinion echoed by Warner Bros. business affairs executive, Steven Spira.
Does this aggrivate anyone else? i know they might just be trying to down play the value of superman but this makes me hope they never get Superman back after 2013. I hope marvel or some other competitor get the license to him
