Warner Bros. (TWX) wins a legal victory over the film and TV rights to the Superman franchise after a three-judge appeals court panel rules a 2001 compromise between the company and the family of the Superman heirs will stick. It's a key victory for the studio with plans in place to recharge the Superman franchise similar to how Batman was re-energized with a fresh series of movies.
