Superhero Movies- Where Next For The Genre-super bass

Arts-and-Entertainment It is a rather strange and exciting time for the .ic book movies genre. With last year’s superhero films The Dark Knight, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, audiences were treated to feature films that took the core elements of the superheroes that have filled .ics for decades and turned them into successful movie properties. The genre as a whole has reached something of an impasse now, mostly down to The Dark Knight, but also down to this year’s WATCHMEN adaptation. Audiences aren’t just there for effects, and the studios have been taking note. The .ic book films we are now seeing released are amongst the most serious, most respectful and most powerful the genre has ever produced. With The Dark Knight, perceptions of the superhero genre have shifted somewhat. Now, movie audiences are starting to see the same grit and level of drama that .ics audiences have known of for years. Iron Man is an ideal example of the genre being captured perfectly on film. Robert Downey Jr’s portrayal of the billionaire Tony Stark was pitch perfect, giving us a hero with much more than just two dimensions. Some may argue that the superhero film came of age back with the first X-men film, and they would be right to a certain extent, but it does seem that the genre is starting to be taken more seriously by critics as a viable source of intelligent entertainment as well as simple blockbuster fodder. What critics need to remember is that these characters have had decades to be.e the fully realized people that appear on screen. These characters .e with a ready-made background and motivations, making it much easier for filmmakers to bring a vibrant portrayal to the screen. WATCHMEN is seen as the Citizen Kane of .ic books, and to many fans of the printed page, it is the Holy Grail. Film versions have been considered for many years now, but it finally fell upon the shoulders of Zack ‘300’ Snyder to bring Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s legendary 12-issue series to a new audience. Fans old and new are curious as to the film will match the depth and scope of the book itself. That’s the thing though- films have been a huge boon to the .ics industry, helping it survive as tastes in entertainment have continued to change. With superheroes, there will always be an audience, but that audience has changed. The .ic book movie is no longer the domain of elitist geeks (not that it ever really was), but now something that everyone can take an interest in. With brand new Spider-man, Batman and X-Men movies on the way in years to .e, as well as many more properties announced and in development, the future of the genre really can’t go anywhere but up, up and away.
