Superhero movies might be the most popular movies in the world right now.
They’re the easiest franchises to capitalize on because of recognition.
No one knows this better than the studios that make these films seeing as many are trying to repeat past successes.
The recent box office flop of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” as well as the worldwide success of “Deadpool” has led many people to question how “superhero” movies should be made.
“Batman v Superman” was very long and tried to ponder serious questions of heroism and destruction, but overall bored viewers.
“Deadpool” was average time, only serious at points and is now one of the most popular movies of all time.
“They should just start it off not so boring… at least put some action in it not tell the whole story then get into the action,” said student Leticia Arreaga.
More and more, people are agreeing with the new style “Deadpool” brought to the table.
The upcoming film “Suicide Squad” was originally set to be released as a serious, dark story of bad guys by how the movies first trailer portrayed it.
However, a new trailer was released showing only scenes of jokes and action shots much in the way the recent “Deadpool” movie was shown and filmed.
The reaction to this new trailer has been so positive that the film’s director, David Ayer, sent the movie back into production: Because those were the only jokes and action shots in the whole movie.
Ayer confirmed this in an interview with Fandango.
“I think that [Ayer] reshooting it really shows that they have dedication towards supporting what other fans want and their vision of how the movie should be,” said student Makaila Lagrimas.
We’ll see how this decision turn out on Aug. 5.
The in production film known as “Wolverine 3” has gone unnoticed, although, something to note about Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie is that it is trying to get an R rating.
An R-rated movie starring a beloved Marvel character produced by 20th Century Fox? Sounds like “Deadpool.”
Director James Mangold has stated according to “insiders” that an R-rated Wolverine has been an idea of his ever since “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in 2009 which ended up being PG-13.
The success of Deadpool will probably be the spark Mangold was waiting for to go all in on R-rated. But would fans really enjoy that?
“I definitely think it was specific to [Deadpool] I don’t think they should keep the trend going with R-rated movies… It’ll just get really tiring,” said Lagrimas.
We’ll see how everyone feels in 2017.
What matters most regardless of what kind of movie you like is that studios are now more willing to make all different styles and tones of films so that you can have your choice.
