1. The Best Move Is To Take the Time to Get it Right
By the time"Batman Vs Superman" becomes a moviegoing reality, Marvel Studios, Fox and Sony, barring any delays, will have released in nine separate Marvel-centric films with a tenth, "X-Men: Apocalypse," premiering just a few weeks after "Batman Vs Superman" -- and Marvel still has an untitled flick scheduled to debut the same day. If DC Entertainment wants to crack Marvel's Hollywood chokehold, it's imperative that this movie be done right. A film that opens the DC Cinematic Universe to the possibilities of "The Justice League" has to be tonally perfect. It is a complex formula, but not an impossible one. This is, after all, the studio that backed Nolan's vision for Batman, but neither Gotham nor Metropolis were built in a day, and the more time Warner Bros. takes to get the "Batman Vs Superman" script as close to perfect as possible, the better. Beyond reintroducing Batman, the script will has to fit in Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor (presumably), most likely another, more physical villain as well, and who knows how many Justice League member cameos. To make sure this movie and its spin-offs are embraced by a Marvel-crazed public, it's best to move slow and smart.
