Warner Bros. has won a lawsuit filed by the heirs of Superman co-creator Jerome Seigel over license fees.  However, the court also ruled that if Warner Bros. doesn't start production on the next Superman [SUPR2] movie by 2011, then the heirs may sue for damages.   The entire Superman copyright will revert to the heirs of the co-creators in 2013.  Source: Variety
