Those aren't serialized films(and frankly I couldn't care less about either of them, anyway). But serialized film properties(like superheroes) are different. They're meant to be ongoing in perpetuity. And I never said a reboot necessarily. It could just be a new take w/o crapping all over what came before.

I only think rebbots are warranted when they f---- up a property and it needs to be corrected, or the property has gone on so long(James Bond, Star Trek) that all that is left is a reboot.
