While Man of Steel is expected to headline Time Warner's (NYSE:TWX.DL) comic book film slate this summer, the company could see huge returns from a new video game that made its debut last week: Injustice: Gods Among Us.
In years past, video-game openings have rivaled film premieres for how much they've brought in. Think of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), whose Halo 4 generated $220 million in first-day sales. Or how about Activision Blizzard's (NASDAQ: ATVI) Black Ops II, which took in $500 million worldwide during its first 24 hours on sale?
For all the potential upside in Iron Man 3, which opens internationally on April 26 for Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), Warner with Man of Steel and Injustice is positioning itself to have as big a summer season as the House of Mouse, or even bigger, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following interview with The Motley Fool's Erin Miller.
