The superhero movie genre is currently all the rage. It seems as though everyone loves them, and unless they are about a group of four individuals who happen to be “Fant4stic,” they generally make lots and lots of money. So what’s the problem? Well, according to Steven Spielberg, at some point in the future they are going to ride off into the sunset and become as rare as the westerns of old. Is he right? For the time being, it’s obvious that the genre isn’t going anywhere, but what does the future hold for these tales of mythical beings? Well, Collin and Zohner discuss just that in this week’s episode of The Generic Geek Podcast.
Oh yeah, we also discuss some news about Star Wars Episode VIII. Spolier warnings are in effect.
- Spielberg predicts the death of superhero movies
- Avengers: Age of Ultron was a failure
- Star Wars coming to Netflix?
- Star Wars casting confirmed
What do you think the future holds for the superhero movie? Is it as dark as a Christopher Nolan Batman film? Are Spielberg, and the Generic Geeks, correct in their assessment? Let us know!
