DC’s Lesser Heroes Get Two Annual Films?

Marvel Studios are following the obvious plan of putting their top tier heroes in the cinemas, and bringing second tier heroes to television and on-demand streaming services.

From the sounds of it DC may not be following that path. Bleeding Cool reports that a series of lower-prominence DC comic books are looking to be turned into relatively lower budget movies.

“Suicide Squad” is specifically mentioned as requiring a pre-marketing budget of only $40 million, others could be done for as little as $20 million and include such characters as Booster Gold, Deathstroke and Team 7.

The aim would also be to do them not only cheap but fast, churning out two a year in both Spring and Fall – leaving the top tier DC heroes for the Summer season.
