Time Warner's (NYSE:TWX) Man of Steel wasn't Kryptonite, and that's good news for investors.

Time Warner stock opened higher on Monday after the Superman reboot broke June's box office receipt records for theatrical opening weekends in this country. The news bodes well as Time Warner's DC Comics prepares to take to Disney's (NYSE:DIS) road map of turning Marvel Comics hits into multiplex magic. 

In this video, Fool contributor Rick Munarriz explains how Time Warner's successes with Batman earlier and Superman now are setting the stage for another Avengers-esque pop. Unlike Disney, which is currently trading near its all-time highs, Time Warner stock has a long way to go to make back its dot-com bubble peak. Hit superhero movies can help it get there faster.
