Killing Wonder Woman
During the podcast TC picks Wonder Woman as his Kill from HBO Max’s launch line-up. It’s a bold pick, but one indicative of TC’s dislike of new superhero movies, with the exception of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
Regardless of the fact Wonder Woman is one of the better DC superhero movies available, and SNIPdaily’s excitement over the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max in 2021, TC has a point.
It’s time to cut-back on superhero movies.
Too Much Of The Same
Regardless of whether someone is a superhero fan or not, everyone can agree that the Marvel movies, starting with Iron Man right to the final Avengers movie, have great production quality. They’re popcorn fodder and that’s perfect for the genre.
Even DC upped the quality with their latest popcorn superhero blockbusters, including Wonder Woman and Aquaman specifically.
The issue is that, too many spoil the broth. They’ve become predictable, and with the exception of Joker, and Tony Stark’s death, there are no surprises, just big explosions.
So, despite being a massive nerd, whose office is full of miniatures from Marvel, DC, and more obscure graphic novels and niches, TC is right. We need a period of no new superhero movies.
However, over-saturation isn’t going to stop the superhero-fest, in 2020 there’s Wonder Woman 1984, The New Mutants, Black Widow, Samaritan, and much more coming.
