A couple of days ago, Marvel announced a tedious line-up of its future film releases for the upcoming five years.
Now, as much as I love Iron Man and can’t wait for Age of Ultron, I’m not very happy with that announcement. I feel like superheroes are being cloned, release dates stamped, and films mass-produced. Setting a timeline for the next five years crammed with sequels and sequels makes me feel like filmmaking is no longer a special, cherishable experience but just an assembly line for plot twists and cliffhangers.
I stumbled upon this article on Vox and it seems like I’m not the only one who might not be thrilled by how Marvel is working its way to the audience.
Stop feeding us a dumb industry. Give us art.
