Botox IS insanity, Jon, especially since every single one of us ends up as worm food!
I remember back in the late 80s and early 90s, there were those who extolled the Shane Black wannabes as writers whose only major reference to life was TV. Now perhaps comic books and superhero movies.
At some point, are any of them going to be tethered at all to Real Life?
And what happens when every trope, every Universe In Danger, every Fake Protagonist Death scenario has been played out in Superhero movies? What happens when they start to fail, as they inevitably will, whether it takes 2 years, 5 years, or 10 years?
I have to believe that at some point, the needle will redirect back toward movies of some substance. And that can happen, too, with indie films like Boyhood, Birdman, Whiplash, Nightcrawler, etc.
WE JUST NEED TO SUPPORT THESE MOVIES!
Another interesting thing will be to see what these writers of superhero movies become interested in when they turn 40, 50 and 60.
Hopefully interesting, diverse and quality stories.
