Sorry, I just can't get over how terrible the new costume is. Hit the jump for a rant.
|Huh, I didn't realize "Super-Bulge" was one of his powers.|
What I mean is that both companies are only doing movies that they know will be successful. Batman is a safe bet, as is Spider-Man. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Watchmen, Avengers, etc. Sure, they've done movies about Jonah Hex and Ghost Rider, but those are exceptions that prove the rule. Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy are moves in the right direction for Marvel, but how about Black Panther and Luke Cage movies? After all, it was an African-American superhero that revived the comic book movie genre. On the DC side, how about a Static Shock movie? Some movies featuring female superheroes would be nice too, Catwoman and Elektra be damned.
Basically, as long as Marvel and DC keep focusing on their A-list, I'm not terribly interested in watching them when they hit theaters. I'm not boycotting them, but my interest will have to be really, really piqued to want to see their movies. At the same time, where's Dark Horse, Image, Oni and all of these other labels? Hellboy and Scott Pilgrim all you guys have to offer? If so, then wow, that is sad as fuck.
