    I wasn't sure if this should go here or the movies/TV section... but I came across this article on Superherohype.com.

    Warner Bros. Loses Rights to Superman's Origins - Superhero Hype!

    I, not being much of a legal beagle, don't really understand the implications of this. Little help?

    EDIT: Yeah, I guess it should be in the movies section... can someone move the thread please? Thanks.

    Did you know that Time Warner (I'm going to refer to both WB and DC as their parent company) also lost the rights to the name Superboy? I assume you know that the Siegel family has been trying to get back ownership of everything to with Superman for the past 12 years. All it's really going to mean is that Time Warner is going to have to license Superman stuff from the Siegel family. It's what they did with Superboy when the name was decalred reverted to the Siegel family.
