'Batman V. Superman' Is Perhaps The Most Expensive Film Ever Made!?!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Just when we thought everything was on the up and up over at Warner Bros. in terms of their upcoming adventure into the "Comic Book Cinematic" universe we get a huge not so good piece of news dropped in front of us that could turn out to spell bad news.  

According to a report by Latino-Review Batman V. Superman's budgets now apparently crossed the $400 million mark, making it the most expensive film of all time by far.  Which means only one thing, this film has to be freakin amazing!  I mean balls to the wall amazing, for it to have any hope of making a big enough profit margin to justify this ridiculous budget.  Get the details below.

According to Latino-Review:

Right now, “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice”s budget has ballooned to $410 million dollars. That means it is in the running for being the most expensive movie ever shot. The current record holder is “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” according to financial statements obtained by Forbes.

How costs got so high for what was once “Man of Steel 2” is something we probably won’t know until well after the movie opens, but the addition of big name cast members, practical sets, and an extended production schedule could have all contributed.

But just because WB was willing to pump money into kickstarting a bunch of superhero movies doesn’t mean that Zack Snyder now has free budgetary reign over the next installments he’s directing. My sources are now telling me that the two-part “Justice League” movie—which is set to be released in 2017 and 2019, respectively—is going to be relatively reasonably budgeted at $500 million for the production of both films.

Now don't get me wrong, this film is going to be a huge hit no matter what, but it really needs to be amazing for Warner Bros. to make a substantial profit.  Right now the film has to make at least a billion dollars to be called a success, which is not a an easy task; no matter what superheroes are headlining your movie.
