Is the well of superhero films running low?
It seems as though every week has a new superhero film debuting, and even though the different universes play host to a litany of different hero and villains, are filmmakers going to have to stretch in order to create new and compelling films? Are these franchise films going to dry the well for future hero/villain films? When are we going to become bored with the genre? The box-office is flooded with with comic adaptations and there are a plethora of new comic-related films in the works. Is there every going to be a lull in these made-for-film adaptations? This goes even further than film and is now plaguing television, with shows like Gotham, Arrow and The Flash.
