Re: Is fantasy more popular than science fiction? If so why?

Interestingly, the biggest fantasy film franchises since 2000 - Harry Potter, Twilight, Narnia and Lord of the Rings - have all ended, are going to end this year, or will end soon (3 Hobbit movies? )

Clearly the spaceship/alien subgenres of sci-fi are less prevalent these days, Avatar and Prometheus notwithstanding - although these are still ongoing series. But I would argue that superhero movies are much closer to sci-fi than fantasy, and they've been going strong for a long time now, and appear likely to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

I'm not that familiar with fantasy, so can people make a list of the current fantasy franchises on film and TV that are big now?
