I've ranted about this before but it just really get's to me... Directors like Zack Snyder, even the guys doing Star Wars and the most annoying, Bryan Singer always talk about how they want to "expand" their universe like Marvel. Singer's bs about how he wants to expand his universe bugs me in 3 different ways,
- His universe is F'd up as it is
- I'm not sure if anyone else agrees but it just seems that everybody at FOX are doing this for the money
- Singer just strolls back into the franchise full-time AFTER the success over at Marvel
These are just my opinions so take it as you wish. When directors say they want to have a large movie-universe it just get's old. As I stated in one of my posts earlier, it's hard to fully enjoy a superhero movie these days because it seems as if they stem from the success of Avengers - this includes Iron Man 3. Personally, I enjoyed the film but after the numbers came in for the Box Office it was clear the movie's success was connected to Avengers (which was expected I guess). The Wolverine was made just to kill time until X-Men DOFP (kinda like IM2) and it seemed as if the movie just tortured us for 2 hours until we could get a glimpse of the next "Shared Universe" film. Man of Steel was great as well but after I left the theatre I felt as if it was another unnecessary reboot like Spider-Man except MOS was made to create... A Shared Universe, *sigh*... This sort of applies to Michael Bay too, he literally said he was DONE with the Transformers Franchise after Dark of the Moon but after Avengers, Transformers 4 is announced.
Anyway I dunno, it just seems as if whenever someone mentions those 2/3 words it pisses me off :P Even "spin-offs" is annoying. Thoughts?
