The movie "Spider-Man: homecoming" is being released next year. Is the Spider-Man franchise really that popular, or is Hollywood running out of original ideas? I personally don't care for Spider-Man, but maybe others do?
Yeah, I know. Marvel is going overboard with the webbed wonder though. To answer your question TS, yes, Hollywood is running out of original ideas. Or, to be blunt, all they care about as an industry is profit & the easiest way to make a killing at the box office is re-treads & remakes, which are crap & devoid of plot, but young people & comic geeks by tickets in droves.
I just saw 'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice' recently distributed by DC Comics/DC Pictures. Man, is this picture pathetic. Wow. Good actors in it too [Jeremy Irons, Lawrence Fishbourne, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Holly Hunter & Amy Adams] & still a dismal picture with over 2 hours of my life that I'll never get back.
It's so bad. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Chief nemesis is just atrocious. How can you assemble high quality actors & give them such an amateur script? Sigh...Nothing is smart, sexy, or funny at all.
Okay, to be completely candid here. I do have a thing for actress Amy Adams. It's not on the same level as say Zoe Saldana, but it's high or right up there.
I just get bummed when Jeremy Irons & Lawrence Fishbourne 2 guys with iconic voices are given lame, filler roles.
I do like breaking down train wreck movies, but I'm not sure the new Bateman movie deserves the roast job SW1 would give it. I'm mulling it over.
