I do think that DC's whole lineup is one or two bombs away from jeopardy though.
Marvel as a brand is now closely associated with quality. Aside from Batman, DC is very hit-or-miss. I hope they take the same care with their films that Marvel has shown, but their track record does not work in their favor.
I think that Marvel went... IM was a success... Let's build a basic framework to inter-relate these next films we have on the docket culminating in The Avengers (Phase 1). Then for Phase 2, they got a little more ambitious, and said lets plant seeds for phase 2 AND phase 3. The success of GotG is a direct result of the strength that Feige has built up into the Marvel brand name.
I have a sinking feeling (and I hope I'm wrong) that DC will stumble over itself trying for that big paycheck without building up to it.
