Hollywood has never witnessed so many successful superhero movies as it has in the past few years. In fact with the number of such movies being made every year it is hard to imagine what it was like a few decades ago. There were hits even then but their success rate at the box office was not so frequent and making a movie of this genre was even frowned upon by the rest of the industry. However, there was a change in the wave in 2002 with the release of Spider-man as it broke all the records that were set up till then. Today a big part of the industry is involved in producing such movies, and that too with magnanimous budgets and they are reaping pretty good returns too. But we know that too much of everything is bad. With so many releases every year there is a rising fear that soon this bubble of superhero movies is about to burst. It has been seen happening many times before that too many movies of the same genre after a certain period stops catching the attention of the viewers. Following are the five signs that show that such a time is soon approaching.
5. One success leads to a million new entrants:
the coming of Spider mam, X-Men, and Lord of the Rings in the 2000’s paved way for some superhero and science fiction movies. With the success of the three mentioned above, the makers jumped to produce movies of this genre and today there is a storm of big budgeted superhero movie projects expecting to create the same effect, but when there is too much in quantity the quality is bound to suffer.
4. The Geeks do rule for a while:
The directors are seen sticking to the original story with staying absolutely true to the core of the tale be it comic books or sci-fi novel. They pay special attention to the minutest details, and this keeps all the geeks around the world really happy.
