What’s Next for Superhero Movies?

The Dark Knight Rises was fantastic – a must see.

But.

Enough already. There have been many, many bad superhero movies. I thought the idea was to keep rebooting until you got it right. (Right: Toby McGuire, Sam Raimi in Spiderman; Chris Nolan, Christian Bale in Batman; Norton in The Hulk; ┬ásee also Peter Jackson, Lord of the Rings). When you get it right: STOP! That’s it. The special effects technology is good enough now to find a good director/writer/actor combo and get it done properly. When you’ve done this, come up with new ideas.
