As some of you may know, Stallone made a comment last year when promoting the "Expendables" where he claims that the reason why you don't see too many over the top action films of the same ilk of "Die Hard", "Rambo" and whatnot is because superhero movies have ruined them. Why does he say this you ask? Well, he claims it's because superhero films showed that you don't need to be super buff to be a hero on screen, so it started to limit the amount of acting job offers for old school action heroes like himself. Although, I doubt seriously this is the case, but I'll let you all be the judge of this, as I always seem to get in way too much trouble in forums whenever i dare to have an opinion on anything. Anyways, what are your thoughts? Did superhero films kill the action movie hero genre? If so, then why? Or do you think Stallone is full of it, and you think the genre would've ended up to where it is without superhero films becoming popular?
I don't think it killed the action genre. I do however think that so many movies have been made and there's only so many plots to stories that can be used. It does get boring after a while, watching the same old, same old.
I think it's a little saturated right now. Everyone seems to be tired of it. Originality would be something fun and new to try.
Hmmm one of the biggest films of this year was Fast Five starring action heroes Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. The film grossed over $600m worldwide, a bigger hit than Thor, X-Men First Class, Green Lantern and Captain America.
I don't think action movie fans have anything to worry about.
no offense steven lensman, the fact that Fast Five was one of the biggest films of the year really bothers me. I can't stress how much i hate any of the Fast & Furious films.

I was just reading Peter Travers latest review on the "Green Lantern" film. Although I do disagree with quite a lot about what he said of the movie, and he definitely gets a few points wrong when talking about the comparisons of the comic book to the actual film itself. ...

Are there too many superhero movies?I've heard this a few times; that Hollywood is churning out only superhero movies and that it is hindering newer, original films. However, with Marvel only halfway through it's infinity wars story arc, and the Justice League a glimmer in Superman's eye, some...

Well it's official....Hollywood has lost it's damn mind with all these superhero movies. Don't get me wrong, I love the genre, but enough is enough. Seriously, do we need to see every damn superhero get a live action movie? Sure, I can understand giving Superman, Batman,...

Why has Hollywood failed to turn classic Anime series into successful movies?From Dragon Ball to The Last Airbender, the normally reliable folks in Hollywood have consistently failed to properly adapt classic Anime series from Japan into viable movies. Why is that?
