Comic books. We all love 'em. But what is it these days with every comic book hero (or villain) being given their own Hollywood treatment? In Coyote's Howling, venerable columnist Coyote entertains the idea that maybe this sort of thing simply must STOP. Check it out and then leave your comments!

As a writer, I absolutely understand the need to appeal to a larger-than-target audience in order to make a buck. But I also understand that you can do so by presenting solid material that doesn't pander to the crowd or dumb down the content. Hollywood on the other hand seems hell bent on using the same tired two tricks in attempts to appeal to that larger audience, only to ultimately appeal to none.

I thought Thor was pretty weak, even though it had a lot of the iconic elements of the movie. I was 'ok' with this until you described Spider Man. I guess I can see it as a Spider Man for the new generation, but it's still lame.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

If any of these comic book movies had any redeeming values they might be half decent.  Even the original Superman movies were miles better than the current crop.  The directors seem to spend all their time on special effects and who cares about plot or storyline.  Unfortunately I have been stuck taking some kids to many of these and I just refused with the latest one.

Sick of comic book movies? Not at all. Sick of the multitudes of poorly done ones? To my back teeth.

I love the genre in movies but there really are very few which are very good. I went through a fad last year where I would google for every single comic book movie made and then proceeded to watch them all and while I loved some, even ones I'd seen before, the majority of them really were quite pathetic.

I had to sit through Thor this summer because my kids insisted, but that pretty much did me in.


I am bored by comic book heroes generally (the new Batman movies being the only exception), and I think the superhero MMOs are pretty lame as well. I just don't get the appeal of wonky costumes and "special powers". After all, when there are 185,000 OTHER superheroes flying around wearing fluorescent spandex, no one is really very "super."

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

All I can say is how I hated some of the movie made into comic books, that total trashed what we knew as canon.  Like fantastic 4,  what they did with Vicrot Doom and so forth.

I would not have an issue if they did not break canon but most of them have.

I bet Ryan Renolds would make a good Spiderman or Batman.

I don't see anything wrong with recent comic book movies.  Some are decent to good (First Class, Captain America, Batman, etc.), a lot are not that great (Thor, Green Lantern, next Spiderman, etc.).  Which is basically how general cinema is - out of a bunch of poor attempts and money-grubbing blockbusters, you get one or two gems per year. 


As long as ever few comic book movies, we get a good comic book movie, there's nothing wrong with the current state of comic book movies.  It's not like the 90s when every single movie was shiet.

You do make a good point apart from the comment about movies in the 90's.. The Shawshank Redemption, Goodlfellas, Schindlers List, Pulp Fiction, Se7en? Come on..  Back to the point, I guess it's like any other genre be it Action, Horror, Drama or any of the other multitudes. There are a flood of movies in the genres but only a few stand out, it just seems there are more bad ones than good in this particular genre.

I'm pretty sure hollywood is totally out of ideas.  As someone who has never cared about comic books or comic book movies I've never understood the fascination people have with them.

Heck, at my age, even the comic books themselves are getting a little out of my zone.

Johnny Storm and now Peter Parker... dead?  Wonder Woman wears pants?  Lois isn't Superman's GF and never was?

Ah well, as long as the kids like it.  :)

Hollywood has always drawn from other sources, including novels and comics. They are not doing anything different now.


On the OP though.... No, not sickof them as a 'thjing' at all. I take each super hero movie as it's own animal and judge it on it's own merits. Some are great, some arnt. Same as with all movies.


I am no more sick of super heroes then I am sick of Sci-Fi, fantasy, or whatever. If a movie is done well then it gets love, no matter what genre it sits in.


I think it's pretty idiotic when some folks say they are sick of or don't like this or that genre... it, honestly, shows a pretty closed mind and willfully ignorant prejudice.  I am a fan of giving everything a chance and judging it on itself, not some vague label like 'super hero movie'.

I won't go see a movie because it's a topic I'm interested in. I will however go see a movie if it looks like something I would enjoy and it seems to be done well. For example, I can miss Cowboys and Aliens, but I went to see the apes movie. Am I a huge fan of science fiction (hello, aliens!)? Yes I am, but I'm not going to see every invasion movie, every movie that has lasers, and anything with an unexplained creature. Am I a fan of gorillas and chimps? No, but the apes movie looked entertaining and I heard several positive things about it before I spent money on it.


I don't feel like lumping in comic book-themed movies as a group and punishing the idea because there have been fail movies. Just like I wouldn't automatically dismiss a Star Trek game coming out just because most of them have been complete failures. I would however exercise extreme caution before purchasing, because of the history.

so...

Honestly its a guilty pleasure of mine.

Superhero movies are the one type of film that i dont overlly criticize. 

Its just mindless fun, watching old heros that i read about like the Hulk or Thor smashing shit on my HD screen.

I enjoy it.

Not tired of them at all.  I really loved Thor and X-Men First class.  I thought that they were both well done.

" But as of late, comic book movies (with a few obvious exceptions) have become watered down, easy to digest versions of themselves designed for the masses instead of the core demographic of fans that made them popular in the first place. "


 


Coyote, have you taken a close look at the genre of gaming for which you write this column? MMORPGs fit your comments to a "T" if one has at least the perspective of being invloved with them since the mid to late 90s.


 


That's the nature of entertainment. A small group of folks find a given "thing" cool or entertaining. One way or another it goes "massively" popular and many of the aspects that made it originally fun to that small group get watered down or taken out because those "details", the things that made the thing "the thing!", are too hard or complicated for the average human.


 


Sick of Comic book movies? Nah. Course, outside of Iron Man and Batman I don't watch comic book movies. Batman has always appealed to me because he isn't a "superhero". Just a normal human with above average martial arts training and a crapload of money. The Iron Man movies appealed to me only because I'm a R. Downey Jr. fan.


 


Oh, and I will see the Avengers movie(s) because I'm a Sam Jackson fan.
