Re: Are Some Comic Book Fans Responsible for Simplifying the Medium to theGeneral Pub
I really can't say I mean comic book nerds complain and piss over the tiniest of details which is why they get picked on and make us normal comic fans look the same.
Captain America and Thor are two good examples of the studio playing it safe with them, since both characters are not dark and moody, they went with the basic by the book good vs. evil concept which is fine I suppose but then the movie starts feeling too lighthearted for my tastes.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
