DC Wins Big Against Estate Of Jerry Siegel Over Ownership Of Superman

“I can’t stand to look at a Superman comic book. It makes me physically ill. I love Superman, and yet, in my mind, he’s been twisted around into some kind of alien thing.” – Jerry Siegel

The US Appeal courts have ruled in favour of Warner Bros and DC Entertainment in the dispute with the heirs of Jerry Siegel over the rights and ownership to Superman and enforces the 2001 contract between Sigel’s estate and DC Comics.

Deadline interprets this as a “green light for Warner Bros. to now move forward with its Superman big screen reboot Man of Steel and other related properties” and reports that the ruling criticised an earlier ruling that allowes Siegel’s heirs to challenge the contract, and that a letter from their lawyers to DC was to to be considered an acceptance of that contract.

There are more decisions to come, but this was pretty central.
