The current superhero cycle of cinema started with 2000’s X-Men, and it really kicked into high gear with 2008’s Iron Man. So we’ve had somewhere between 14 and 22 years of men (and a few women but not enough) in capes and/or spandex. Where does it end?
How much longer can the superhero paradigm dominate movies… and what’s next?
