You know, it’s far easier to forgive a bad film than a boring one. Take a creative risk, fail spectacularly, but never settle for the mundane – especially when it comes to superhero films. With such a collection of colorful, bold characters and unique settings, it’s almost a crime to produce a bland superpower-inspired affair.
Sadly, we’ve experienced more than our fair share of zero-energy efforts and we’re likely to encounter a few more in the years ahead. We’re not saying that every film needs to be Citizen Kane, but at least inject some enthusiasm and fun into the damn thing. After all, do you really want to watch a superhero movie that puts you to sleep faster than a Tobey Maguire monologue?
