I was just thinking about it this morning. I saw some poster shots of Avengers 2 with Ultron and The Vision and wondered how come they haven't thought of making a movie centered on a villain and having him or her accomplish their goals of world domination or whatever. But overall I can't say I'm sick of superhero movies since I hardly own any kind of superhero movies or watch them at the theaters.


well they are going to make a venom movie and a sinister six one for the spiderman universe


I had to look up Sinister Six. That's interesting though. I wonder how they'll make it work out. Seeing as how they already have shocker, doc oc, and sand man. I wonder if they'll have the same actors play the villains or if they get new faces. I hope Venom ' s own movie will come out good.


It's a risky move on their part I'm curious to see how it'll end up as well. But the hype alone would make for a good first week at the box office regardless of the quality , hmm like I said it is a gamble same as guardians of the galaxy not sure how it'll play out guess we'll just have to wait and see

(Shocker , Sandman , Doc Oc will more then likely be played by new actors since they rebooted to the amazing spiderman , its basically a new universe)

I am soooo NOT sick of super hero movies. In fact I think they are finally heading in the right direction. Don't get me wrong I was really not liking super hero movies before Marvel stepped in and started their own studio and created the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We had two Ghost Rider movies, two Punisher movies, Daredevil, Elektra, Hulk, and so on. None of those I liked, but I did like the Ed Norton's Incredible Hulk that years in advance showed you a glimpse into what Captain America could be in the park scene between the Hulk and the Super Soldiered up British guy.

I like the continuity they've created between the characters, that they work individually and together. But, most importantly to me that the stories continue. I was getting irritated with the whole super hero genre when they go two or three movies and reboot. And each time they reboot they'd have to cover the origin story again and again. I like that they have all origin stories out of the way and now they're going far deeper into stories that they ever could/would if they kept rebooting a character. Look at what we got. We got X-Men Day's of future past, we're going to see Apocalypse in the next x-men movie. Guardian's of the Galaxy is coming out this Friday, and GotG 2 has already been announced for 2017. Doctor Strange is coming with rumors of Black Panther too! None of the risky movies I named would not have been made if the MCU wasn't there.

The only rebooted trilogy I liked so far was the Dark Knight series.


You totally hit the nail on the head for me here.

The Mavel movies are the first superhero movies I've actually cared about in a long time. I was tired of seeing the same plot over and over again with the same actors, and now we're FINALLY getting into some depth! These aren't just "a bunch of sequels with the same characters over and over again"; Marvel is playing the long game here. All of their movies work together to form a larger story, and as far as I know nothing like this has ever been attempted in the history of film and it's amazing.

Sure, the movies can stand alone on their own merit (and they're all good movies in their own way), but put them together and they become something bigger. Something more. And that's what I love. They've created an entire world for us to explore and are showing no signs of slowing down.

No, no. Definitely not. I like what Marvel is doing with their Cinematic Universe and what DC started with Man of Steel for their Cinematic Universe. Fox has redeemed their X-Men movies with their latest outing, X-Men: Days of Future Past, so I'm excited to see where those lead.

The only superhero movie series I am sick to death of is the Spider-man series by Sony. The last three have not been very good and add nothing to what has come before. The Amazing Spider-man 2 felt like such a waste of time that I wish Sony would just sell the rights back to Marvel so Spider-man can take his rightful place by the Avengers' sides.

Very much so sick of them, wouldn't mind a film centered around a Villain for a change of pace.

Yeah. They've become predictable and repetitive. Last I saw was Captain America: The Winter Soldier and it bored the hell out of me.

I am so not sick of superhero movies. Besides animation, they're my favorite kind of movies to see. I wouldn't say I'm an avid movie goer, but I do like to see at least one or two movies a month, more if there are a lot of movies I want to see being released at the same time.

I really like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I love seeing how they are all intertwined and the ways the characters develop. And even though I really liked it, I do have thoughts about what happened in Iron Man 3 (the removal of the arc reactor just seemed really out of character, especially after the way Tony discussed it in the Avengers). I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the future MCU films.

I thought the first X-Men trilogy went really downhill, and I was worried about X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past, but I ended up really enjoying them.

The Deadpool movie that is actually being made also looks like it might be absolutely spectacular.

I liked the recent Batman trilogy, but I thought that Man of Steel left a lot to be desired. The best thing about that movie was the eye candy.

And even though there are a lot of bad superhero movies out there, it's not enough to make me dislike them.

What I would like to see, however, is a good superhero movie featuring a female superhero, like Black Widow, Wonder Woman or She-Hulk.

Yeah I'm completely sick of them. Most of all I'm sick of all the reboots. Spiderman 3 was the best of the series, but they had to reboot it cos everyone was like "Wah! This sux, I hate dancing." Personally I thought it was the best scene in the movie. But a bunch of whiners from their target demographic helped set a precedent that these movies have to be generic crap and dare not include even the slightest hint of artistic nuance.

Depends on the superhero. I'm bored of Spiderman. I'm bored of Superman. Batman I'd rather go watch the DCAU. Unless they decide to make a Batman Beyond movie, which has the potential to be awesome and would be something different to do with Batman than the previous movies. X-men I'm sort of still annoyed by the treatment of Nightcrawler and how they handled the Phoenix. Though Patrick Stewart as Xavier and Mckellan as Magneto were excellent casting choices.

Now, the MCU I'm enjoying very much. All of the movies have something I like about them and I enjoy how they all connect together. I like continuity in things I watch, hence my fondness for the DCAU. I look forward to see what Marvel is going to do because they'll go out of the box some. They've already gone to space, which apparently the X-men group were too scared to do.

And I would very much like for there to be another Hellboy movie. He's sort of a super hero and I liked the first two movies and the animated movies. Wouldn't mind another Spawn or The Shadow movie either. I'd really like another Shadow movie.
So, basically, a well done super hero movie is always welcome, especially if it's one of the lesser used super heroes. Though I'll pretty much always choose a super hero movie over a chick flick.

What I really want more of are giant monster, mech, and scifi/space movies. Godzilla and Pacific Rim were not enough. I hope James Cameron gets on the Battle Angel Alita movie sometime in the next two decades.
Oh, and a non-Bay version of Transformers would be very nice.

For me it comes down to them staying true to the source material. I don't need 100% adhirance to the comic book history but a good understanding of who and where the character comes from is vital. The MCU movies have managed that really well so far (although Iron Man 3 kind of crossed the line with faux Mandarin, and then stepped back over it with hints that there might be a real Mandarin in the shorts they did up. Admittedly Faux-Mandarin was kind of a neat spin on things but I was really hoping to see 10 magic rings vs. high tech armor.)

other companies....have been really hit or miss.

The Fantastic Four movies almost had it. The dynamic between the main characters was pretty close to what it was meant to be. But then they screwed up the villains for both films. Their version of Doom was pathetic and I don't even want to think about the space cloud

Warner Brothers has been pretty bad at dealing with the DC characters, at least as far as movies go. The Nolan Batman flims are good but at the same time they just don't feel right. Green Lantern tried to put too much into one film and focused on Special effects when they should have been building up character development. Man of Steel.....had a lot wrong with it starting with a very poor understanding of Superman himself.

and of course the biggest whopper of them all Catwoman...which had absolutely nothing to do with the comic character and esentially tried to turn herr into the Crow
