The End of Superhero Movies?

Originally posted on The Sunflower Cafe:
I’ve heard people jokingly (and not so jokingly) ask if the end of superhero movies is near. The thing is, superhero movies have become their own genre so to ask for an end would be like asking for the end of romantic comedies, horror movies, or spy thrillers. Also, superhero movies aren’t anything new. They’ve existed long before the Avengers hit screens, and they’ll be around long after. I have no complaints about a new movie or two being released each year, but I can understand the exhaustion people are having. We don’t need an end though. We need variety. One of the issues is that every recent superhero movie is linked together and all done through the same company. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is impressive, it doesn’t allow much separation because there are movies for each of the main Avengers leading in to the Avenger trilogy. Viewers are stuck in the same universe over and over again even though they’re able to see different stories taking place…

The Most Cringe-Worthy Scenes In Comic Book Movies

This is a video by i09 showing highlights of some of the most cringe-worthy scenes in comic book movie history. Some of these scenes are real gems (and by gems I mean bat-shit crazy). So sit back and remember when these comic book movies were seen as triumphs of film (well not Spider-Man 3, that was known as garbage since day one). Enjoy!
