I don't know why some people want superhero movies to go away. I mean nobody is making anybody else watch them in the first place. Even if they did stop making them, there's no guarantee they'd be replaced by something haters would like better. Heck, most of the people hatin' on superhero movies hate on everything else as well. So there's really just a lot of people who bitch for the sake of bitching.
Superhero movies will never "go away." People love the extraordinary. Superhero film serials started in the 40s, and even the silent era had it's own brand of "super hero."

There have been lulls, and I have no doubt another is due, but it will only be for a few years at most and they'll be "in" again.

Wishful thinking. What would probably happen is more board game adaptations, video game adaptations and 50 different versions of Snow White, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz.


Wait, that's already happening. - I don't even wanna know what they'd come up with if they actually had to replace superhero movies...

I don't think the Studios believe there is any way of making money off of Serious films or "deep" films For Summer. I think the belief is Summer Films have to be "popcorn".

So, yea, if it wasn't for the Summer Superhero movies taking up screens, there would likely be even less depth to the Summer Blockbuster offerings.

Westerns haven't "gone away," but the era in which studios will invest big bucks in the superhero genre in the expectation of reaping big profits, summer after summer, is nearly over. What's next? Who knows?

I live about an hour away from that area. I should take a drive down there for kicks on day soon.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

So after reading that article it would appear that comicbookmovies.com is involved in the original report which means I'm skeptical. Since it's the weekend still though if this is legit and filming has began we won't know about it until the rest of the entertainment blogs pick it up.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I don't know if Westerns are the best comparison. Westerns are of a specific time period that becomes less and less relevant as time goes on. Superhero films can be transplanted to any time. Superman began in the 1930s and he'll continue until well past the 2030s.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I think Dennis was just picking a random genre that has still managed to stick around in modern times. I really don't think we need to worry about comic book movies going away any time soon no matter what kind of hits these adaptions take at the box office or from critics. There are many comic books out there with tons of story potential. All it takes is a producer and director willing to be serious about the film and a good script and cast. We shall wait and see if "Man of Steel" is one of the great ones or is another critical disaster for DC Ent.

If it's another critical disaster, you can look forward to Batman movies and only Batman movies until the end of time.

True. However, the next Batman reboot if it comes real soon after Nolan(like this ASM is post-Raimi) will have to be uniquely different, yet familiar and good for me to get excited about it.

Even the good characters if overly done could produce burnout imo.

Shame really.

Green Lantern was suppose to help push for more DC comic movies. Now Man of Steel has double the weight on it's shoulders.

It was already under pressure to do better than Superman Returns.
