Legendary Entertainment, the company that co-financed “Man of Steel” and the “Dark Knight” movies, is talking to “everybody” in Hollywood about a new production alliance, including incumbent Warner Bros.
In Warner Bros.’ “Man of Steel,” Superman tries to save the world from powerful villains. His real-life task is no cakewalk either: Turn the studio’s DC Comics into a hit factory like Walt Disney Co.’s Marvel.
Legendary Pictures Inc., co-producer of Warner Bros. releases including “The Dark Knight,” agreed to make movies with China Film Co., gaining a foothold in the No. 2 film market while weighing its options in Hollywood.
