Super Hero Movies Are on the Way Out

Now if the title doesn’t upset a few people I don’t know what will but recently Matthew Vaughn, the director behind “Kick-Ass” and the same man who is directing Super Hero movie “X-Men: First Class” has stated that he believes the current swash of Super Hero based movies will be coming to an end soon. He gives his reasons which include the quality of some of these movies and that he believes that audiences will grow tired of one Super Hero movie after another. But it has to be said that there is a sort of an irony here for a man who is directing a Super Hero movie to come out and say that basically the end is nigh.

But whilst it is ironic I have to say I agree with Matthew Vaughn and think the recent popularity for Super Hero movies could come to a crashing end within a year or two. Why, well let’s look at the facts.

Spoilt for choice

Super Hero movies are not something new, they have been around for decades going back to the 1940s with the likes of “Adventures of Captain Marvel”, “The Phantom” and “Superman”. When I was growing up during the late 70s and 80s there was Christopher Reeve in “Superman” and then came the “Batman” movies but that was really it. But never have we had so many Super Hero movies making their way on to the big screen.

Whilst many will probably be salivating at all these Super Hero and comic book adaptations it does mean that where as once you were loyal to just ดูหนังออนไลน์  one Super Hero now your loyalties are being tested, forced to split between several and there is only so far your loyalties can be split. Because quite simply if you are a fan of Spider-Man, Superman, Wolverine and say Iron Man by the time you watch Thor, Captain America or Green Hornet you struggle to embrace them.

Much of a muchness

Now I know that by what I am going to say will enrage comic book fans but so many Super Hero movies are just too similar. Yes each individual character may have some special power, costume or back story but the storylines generally follow a very similar path which sees the creation of said Super Hero followed by a battle with a nemesis or in the case of some – multiple nemeses, all of which is embellished by bit action and CGI.

As such there is going to come a time when audiences grow tired of watching yet another one of these movies only to end up watching the same old story with just a different character and star. And this ties in that a time will come when audiences will grow out of movies which rely on special effects and big star names to entertain and start turning there back on movies which have no originality or fail to deliver a different angle on an old storyline.
