If you watch any of my periscopes (I have a daily live video streams on the Periscope app) then you know I wasn’t thrilled about the direction that Fantastic Four was going. On more than one occasion I bemoaned the fact that the director was too green, the decision to go with the Ultimate version of F4, and a myriad of other issues I had leading up to the film.
Regardless, I am always excited to watch a superhero film. Try as hard as I do, I can’t keep myself from the childlike excitement that takes over when I see that Marvel production graphic in the opening credits. I’m a relatively positive person as well. I want to like movies. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. That being said, Fantastic Four isn’t as terrible as everyone is saying, but it’s definitely not a good movie.
There’s been a lot of grumbling about comic book movies and television as of late. I’ve heard so many people say, “When will this fad be over?” “When
will super hero movies and television shows slow down?” “When will you stop wearing super hero belt buckles?” The answer to all of these questions is
I’ve been told that the love for comic book media will inevitably end. That the market is oversaturated and people will get burnt out. There are so
many different super hero shows, movies, podcasts, and books now available. Whether it’s Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine or a new show like Supergirl, Daredevil, or Teen Titans, we have a new comic book show to talk about every season. It doesn’t seem to be ending and I think I know why.
I think because there’s room.
Room for all sorts of different niches. There are enough comic book lovers, that these types of shows will continue to come out because we’ll
continue to watch them.
That’s why I think you should watch Arrow and The Flash. For the direction those two shows lead us.
