5 Comic Book Movie Reboots That Really Worked


As the old saying goes: If you don’t succeed at first, then try, try again. This is a life lesson that Hollywood has taken aboard through years of film history – unfortunately to the public’s detriment on more than one occasion. Reboots, sequels and remakes have become a recognizable stamp of American cinema, with Hollywood having been consistently preoccupied with rehashing dependable and bankable old ideas to keep the money rolling in – even if the subsequent critical reception has been lukewarm to say the least. Indeed, if you’re a Hollywood producer, the old saying is probably something more like: If you do succeed at first, then try, try again anyway…

Fortunately though, when it comes to the movie reboot, there have been some merciful crumbs of comfort – especially in the comic book world. No doubt there have been a fair few duds, but thankfully, success has been found on more than one occasion.

Listed here are 5 comic book reboots that actually worked and worked rather well. Check them out and be sure to sound off in the comments section letting us know whether or not you were a fan of any of these films.
