Default Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?

IMO execs will realize reboots are terrible ideas. Even though the new Spiderman will probably gross a lot of money, I won't be surprised if it doesn't gross as much as Spiderman 3 or barely grosses more than Spiderman 3.

Both Batman begins and The Incredible Hulk, despite being better films than their predecessors (arguably for TIH), barely did better in the box office than their predecessors because let's be honest, as much as bad films hurt the confidence of filmgoers, reboots can too.

Execs will eventually realize that continuity > reboot any day, everyday of the week.
