With Disney and Warner Bros making more and more super hero shows and movies, do you thinks its too much or are you excited to see them?

I have zero use for superhero movies. I think they're boring.

That said ... what do I care if they crank them out?

Am I obligated to see all movies? [No.]

Would I want to see all movies? [No.]

Even if I wanted to see all movies, Hollywood alone spits out 500+ films per year. Who has time for ~1.5 new movies every year? [Not me.]

If anyone is watching even half that number of movies every year, that's a person that really needs to get a life. But they still could easily avoid superhero movies, which are a small fraction of all movies. It baffles me why people get bent out of shape over product they don't like. Don't consume that product - problem solved.

Agree with 2x.

I don't like them, rarely if ever watch them, but people do and they keep people employed so good for them. Plenty of other entertainment for me to enjoy.

They will wear out their welcome eventually like many other genre films.

Superhero movies make such huge money, but they require less acting skill, and less writing skill, than any genre.
A lot of those actors could have spent their time doing real films, but chose big money instead.

What 2x said. (Except I think s/he meant "Who has time for ~1.5 new movies every day?")

I don't care much for them, but plenty of people do want them. The movie industry would stop making them if they weren't making a lot of money doing it.


My experience is that an original film might be worth watching but the sequels rarely are worth the time and effort. I loved the first Jurassic Park and the original Star Wars, but the sequels just keep getting dumber and dumber. Too bad they don't take some of that special effects money and spend it on better writers.

Cartoons get the biggest box office, and superhero films too.
They both appeal to children (and their parents) and teens.
Adults watch them too, but the deciding factor (for big box office dollars) is children and teens.

The problem is not the quantity. The problem is the quality.

But that is true of any TV genre. I mean really. How many more shows do we need about cops, lawyers, and doctors? Are we really only one season away from CSI: Mayberry RFD?

The only superhero movie I watched and liked was the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve. I think these days people are looking for a hero and we're not finding any in real life so these movies may be filling a void for some people.

*Shrug* Superhero moves are the "thing" right now. There are always waves of popularity... we're not even yet over the "let's remake/reboot/make a sequel to old stuff" trend (that one has lasted quite a while), there was the "apocalypse movie" trend and the "vampire/werewolf movie" trend, yada yada yada. Eventually this, too shall pass and we'll get something else that's trendy for a while.
