They actually have flooded the Market, so if you come up with a new Cop drama it has to have some spectacular 'hook.'

Immediately after way.
Carrie didn't. The Purge didn't. Saw Didn't. Aliens didn't. There's films so much different than the typical "horror" movie that are horror. Superhero films don't have that.

The superhero genre does not *require* a $150 million budget. The upcoming Netflix shows showcasing Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones will be proof of that. Not all superheroes fly, fling enemies through skyscrapers, or shoot lightning bolts out of their ass. Some are just pretty ordinary dudes in some extraordinary circumstances.
I mean, you could use Superman '79 as an example at that rate. Yes, low budget superhero films don't need to make $300M, but we don't have many of those anymore, and we don't really have any coming up. WB isn't planning any low budget superhero films, neither is Sony, neither is Marvel Studios, as evidenced by them taking their lower budget superheroes and putting them on Netflix. But you're right, as I said earlier, they can do another low budget superhero film off season.

But the fact that the vast majority of the industry and all the much sought after characters require $300M, shows why there can be too many, even if there's room for a few more low budget franchises.
