Warner Bros Wants Many More Batman Films
Today, Time Warner announced its Q4 earnings and in the process CEO Jeff Bewkes talked about "The Dark Knight" and the future of the Batman franchise.
"We look at Harry Potter It's fantastic to have franchises that last that long. We want to do that with Batman and Superman and perhaps Sherlock Holmes," said Bewkes.
"The sequels are as good, with new characters added, as were the originals. That wasn't the case in the years ago. Warners has more tentpoles as an on-going strategy that very much lifts its distribution and performance.
We think that's going to hold up our slate in the 2009 - 2010 period. We've got four more big tentpoles coming this year.
