A federal judge ruled in favor of the aforementioned companies and denied an attempt by the heirs of Superman co-creator Joseph Shuster to get back a 50 percent interest in blue and red-clothed superhero.
What would have happened if Shuster won the case?
Clark Kent wouldn’t be able to use the token super strength and speed and not to mention the Clark Kent secret identity and his love interest, Lois Lane, until a costly agreement would be met between both sides.
The court victory will also let Warner produce sequels of the June release, “Man of Steel,” without a problem, well that is if the film does well of course. Also, the companies won’t have to worry about losing their lead character in their 2015 Justice League film.
According to the Los Angeles Times report, the Shuster estate plans on appealing the court ruling.
So what will the future of Superman hold? Hopefully it’s a world of good movies and great comics. Time will tell I guess, but it doesn’t have to get that much better if you look at the franchise’s recent history.
Remember Brandon Routh?
