    The inner child in me likes a good explosion, a 'hero' with super powers and some of that science/fantasy goodness that goes along with it. But there is a weighted scale involved. Art vs Money.

    Christopher Nolan transformed batman into something much more. I can't say the same for any other comic film. They found a format. They like it. They are reproducing it. And we're paying for it. Once you've had enough repetition what you want most is variety. Marvel announcing a lengthy line up to me says they are worried about maintaining what they have. I would worry too because comic films have outstayed their welcome a bit. Innovation doesn't mean Spider man 1-2-3 then rebooting and doing a whole new 1-2-3. Innovation would mean they had a new idea for a change. This is why any sense of maturity in the format is gone. Ironically, I've started thinking that maturity in the genre is in question also.

    My inner child lives. But Michael Bay is killing that child. It's time for something better. Something more.
