Why Batman and Superman Mashup is a Bad Idea--And Reveals Warner Bros. Weakness

You know Malcolm Gladwell's "Blink"? That moment when you look at something and you know it's wrong? That happens to me when studios announce a new project that is a really bad idea. Some movies based on good ideas just turn out badly, and plenty of great movies turn out to to be less than commercial, or cost too much to turn a profit. The Superman and Batman movie is a bad idea.
