Make Mine Marvel... or not.

To piggyback on Jon's site (which I'd link to, but is currently down), he brings up the Marvel movies, and the fact that there's about to be, I think by current listings, another 19,000 of them coming out in the next few years.

I agree, it's getting excessive. Nic Cage is staring in the soon to come out Ghost Rider movie. According to a site probably as reputable as "Ain't it Cool News" (around 35% Accurate) coming soon we'll see Ant-Man, Black Panther, Black Widow, Blade 4, Captain America, Daredevil 2, Deadpool, Deathlok, Dr. Strange, Hulk 2, Iron Fist, Iron Man, Longshot, Luke Cage, Man-Thing, Morbius, Namor: The Submariner, Power Pack, Prime, The Punisher 2, She-Hulk, Spiderman 3, Venom, and X-Men 3.

Now this whole craze began anew with the X-Men movie, which did significantly well. The reason of course is that people have heard of X-Men. Then Spiderman did well for the same reason. On the DC end, Batman had consistantly done well (undeservingly so under Schumacher, however Nolan's interpretation was actually really good), and I'm willing to bet that when Superman comes out, it'll do well.

Who the hell has ever heard of Ant-Man? Who is Ant-Man's adversary? (I gotta think it would be Spiderman.) The Incredible Hulk is well known, and that movie blew. The Fantastic Four people have probably heard of, and that movie blew. Spiderman 1 and 2 were good, X-Men 1 and 2 were good. Batman Begins was good. (On another note Sin City was awesome, but that is neither here nor there.) So there you have it. Five decent movies. Daredevil, the Hulk, The Punisher, Blade 1-3, Elektra, Catwoman... suck suck suck suck suck.

I'm willing to bet Ghost Rider sucks too.

'Nuff Said.
