Thor made $440,000,000 and Green Lantern made $240,000,000. seems like a lot of people are going to these films. sure GL may not have done the numbers they wanted, but that has more to do with the crappy looking early trailers and mediocre reviews it received. Thor did seem to get a lot more positive buzz. actually planning to go see Cap, so i hope it ends up being good.
Actually, GL is still in debt. @welshguy said:
With the third Nolan Batman, the zach snyder superman and spider-man's "extreme" highschool adventures (sorry for being flippant but i don't like the sound of that reboot) I don't see comic movies falling out of favour just yet. Thor was a success (though not in Iron man levels I believe) and a bloody good film; First Class didn't interest me on teeny bit and Green Lantern... maybe it just looked too wierd for the masses to engage with.So long as the third Batman does well I do not foresee the demise of comic movies just yet. If it makes the same amount of cash that (in my opinion) the overlong, dull and rather overrated Dark Knight did, the studios will remain in love with comic movies.
People disliked GL because it was a bad movie, although X-Men: First Class was x-cellent and highly acclaimed.
Basically, whether or not people will grow tired of superhero movies can be boiled down to one point. And this point is the story. The better a story you're telling, the less people will tire of it. Don't hide behind the effects and abandon this constant one-upping the previous movie, like Spidey II had to have two villains
It only had one, Doc Ock. @moncole said:
I want them to be for fans and not family movies
Unfortunately, they just wouldn't turn a big enough profit.
am i the only one who liked the last hulk movie? i come to this site and everyone seems to hate it...
They were probably talking about Aang Lee's hulk, not the latest The Incredible Hulk with Ed Norton.
