ARE SUPER-HEROS DESTROYING HOLLYWOOD?
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Andy Wachowski (Cloud Atas, Matrix) says "There is a supply and demand thing working there in Hollywood. The studios are making these big spectacles, but the audiences are going to see them."
That is not going to last forever, he says... But how can he be so sure?
Andy bases his prophecy of doom on the former collapse of the comic book industry, when everything became based on sequels.
Eventually, the market place will become over-saturated, and audience tastes will change, and as Andy says, " the whole system will re-invent itself as something else."
Is the era of the super-hero in decline, or is it just getting started?
