The superhero movie trend needs to be put to rest. Then we'd have to campaign against shitty horror films.

I realize it's an unpopular opinion. However, there's just way too many of these half-assed superhero movies. They're popular because of the iconic characters and decent production values, but it must be difficult to take a household name and screw up with the amount of resources these films are allotted. They're entertaining (on some level, I'm sure), but at what cost?

@32 I agree and disagree. Not everything should have to innovate a genre of movie, but the film industry is oversaturated with these garbage template movies. They know they can get away with it, too. Why play risky when you can milk guaranteed cash cows?

I'll agree that there should be fewer shitty movies, but are you trying to say that The Dark Knight Rises wasn't good? Because I don't even like Batman and I thought that movie was fucking awesome.

While not my cup of tea, I'll concede that it was well above the average hero flick. The trend of mass producing superhero movies got worse when Hollywood saw the success of The Dark Knight and Iron Man. I don't personally like either of these movies, but they deserved the money they made. Everything following (excluding The Dark Knight Rises) has been subpar and an obvious attempt to ride the wave of success.

#81: No. The Avengers was a huge precedent for films; it's the first time several franchises have shared a crossover film that didn't blow. This only worked out because the franchises it combined weren't truly separate--they were deliberately set in the same "cinematic universe" in such a way that a successful crossover would be possible (i.e.: they planned to make an Avengers film from the start). I think that instead of blaming superhero movies for being shitty, you should just realize that you don't like superheroes.

It would be more accurate to just say I'm overly critical of movies or dislike trends that create an influx of average films. One of my favorite childhood shows was Justice League and I used to learn about comics through one of my friends who was really into them. But hey, I admit to speaking outside of my realm of knowledge. I'm sticking to my opinion, but on an objective level (reviews, awards, gross income), I was more wrong than right. Cheers!
