I keep wondering aloud (read: bitching) why they keep remaking superhero movies every few years. I mean, it used to be that you waited the respectable 15 or 20...now not even 10 have to go by.
And today, after watching Man of Steel, and asking Mr. RK, "When does Thor II come out? How about Wolverine?", I answered my own question.
Because idiots like me want to go see them! Show me a movie with a fit man in tights, and I'll drop $10 and go through a bucket of popcorn. Then, chances are, I'll go buy the action figure.*
I'm just a sheep that way, I guess.
I've always liked superhero stuff. As a little kid, I collected action figures instead of dolls. So I played with The Incredible Hulk, Superman, Batman...etc. Stupidly I didn't save the action figures so I bought them again when I grew up.
You're never too old for toys, you know. (And no, that has nothing to do with movies that may have previously been made in my office...)
*Well, let's say a fit man in tights who wants to save the world from
hostile aliens/mutants/etc. Otherwise, we just have Richard Simmons.
