How many times could they they go back to the well? Iron man director Jon Favreau has recently stated that stories about superheroes is hard to tell after 3 movies. He points out that generally after the 2nd movie the story starts to peter out and I attend to agree to a certain degree. Examples of Spider-man 2 and X-2 being the high points of the each franchises (so far at least) Favreau also uses these same examples as a reason to only make 3 movies featuring Iron man, weather for another solo movie and an Avengers spin off or a solo trilogy. When I think about the past Superman and Batman movies and how they ended up fallin' flat on their face it makes me wonder. Although their failures could be contributed to the later directors or cast that replaced the originals example: Joel Schumacher and Val Kilmer from Tim Burton and Michael Keaton or Dick Lester from Richard Donner. I realize how hard it must be to the same cast and crew the entire run but it makes me worry that if the planed Spider-man and X-Men sequels continue in the same vain there gonna shot themselves in the foot.
I wanna hear what everybody else thinks, so please post away.
