Breaking News: DC To Possibly Make More Superhero Films Someday/Man of Steel Logo

From the “news you are probably indifferent to” file comes this nugget:

According to “Wrath of the Titans” screenwriter Dan Mazeau, who also wrote a draft for the planned “Flash” adaptation, Warner Bros is still very interested in giving the various Justice League characters their own movies.
“I think Warner Bros. is finalizing their strategy of how they want to roll out their DC superheroes, and obviously they’ve got Batman in an incredibly great place, and Green Lantern, I think, performed okay,” Mazeau said in an interview with Blastr. “I think they probably would have liked it to have done better, but yeah, there is still a whole lot of excitement for the DC universe, and I know The Flash is very high on the list.”
“It’s like anything, though,” he continued. “It has to come together with the right cast. It has to come together with the right director and sort of the right moment, and so they’re trying to push the rock up the hill … hopefully there will be some news soon, but right now I can’t really say anything else.”

So just to recap, there’s probably almost definitely a chance that we will get to see a film based on The Flash and other DC characters someday. Unless we don’t. Hmm. Snark aside, I want to know what you all think about this. Do you even care about a Flash film at this point? How should it be done? Is there any way to keep the project from avoiding Green Lantern-style cheesiness and becoming respectable like Nolan’s Batman films? Without dwelling too much on the Marvel vs. DC debate, I’m genuinely interested in hearing your thoughts about all of this. Fire away.

Update: DC just released the official logo for Man of Steel:
