Planet Ivy: With cinemas littered with adaptations, sequels and re-boots, you might be tempted to think that film makers are running out of ideas.

For me, these films seem very repetitive- Dark Knight was an exception

The last dark knight film was overly-wrong and just far too bleak..

moviewatcher1293d ago

Dark Knight was kinda more arthouse then superhero movie, fantastic though

Dark knight isnt marvel. its DC comics.

moviewatcher1293d ago

I know! So excited; looks amazing

I'm still a little 'ehhh' about the Wolverine film. Not satisfied yet.

To be fair, it was always going to be Marvel..

KingPin1293d ago

compared to other action movies, all marvel movies seem too tame and lame.
the special effects are good but the stories are bleak.

i know they have to cater for a younger audience but there is an older generation that i think they need to cater for. make the movies gritty.

Marvel films are decent, very few are actually phenomenal

yes marvel makes numerous movies only some are phenomenal but there success is how persistently they believe on their brand and they keep selling it to the audience until they get it right.

Hergula1286d ago

You are right about that, and I agree.

It's easy to see how Marvel Studios is the dominant comic book film maker. Their films are excellently made, based on some of the best comic book characters ever and made by Marvel themselves who actually know about the characters and their stories.
