One where if he/she loses at the end the audience wouldn't say "wow, what was the point of that" or "some hero they were" but instead say I can't wait for the next movie and this hero gave their all. Now, I'm not saying they have to die at the end but look close to certain death or just simply lose the battle, be at the mercy of the villain. Have people wonder how will the hero come back to win and leave the movie like that. Not every movie has to be tied with a bow at the end and the hero smiling. I think it would be a great idea and the audience would appreciate something different. Now tell me, who's with me?
I'm not so sure the audience wouldn't be saying that. Very likely they would be.
