The fall of superhero cinema? The “Batman” star has a theory about this!

Paul Danostar “Batman” from 2022, stated in an interview with “The Independent” newspaper that superhero cinema “is experiencing a serious downturn”. According to the actor, their number has become more important than the quality of comic book productions, and this does not lead to anything good.

“We find ourselves in an interesting moment when everyone asks: OK, what’s next? Currently, comic book cinema is in a real slump,” said the actor, who is promoting his latest film “Astronaut”.

“The problem is much more complex. With the emergence of the word ‘content’ in the film and television business, the focus began to be on quantity, not quality. In my opinion, it was the wrong step forward,” the actor continues.

Just a year after “Batman” premiered, it began the fall of superhero cinema.

Financial flops movies like “Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantomania”, “Flash”, “Shazam! Wrath of the Gods” Whether “Marvels” caused the two largest comic book studios – Marvel and DC – to seriously consider their future. The first one reduced the number of planned premieres (only one Marvel film will be released in cinemas in 2024), the second one hired James Gunn and Peter Safran to create the DC universe from scratch.
