Superhero fatigue is certainly real for many moviegoers. The seemingly non-stop churning out of projects by Marvel and DC has burned out many fans of the superhero genre, especially when many of those projects feel less inspired than lofty. Avengers: Endgame or The Dark Knight. even James Gunn Who is now also in charge of DC Studios Peter Safran, admits that there’s too much superhero content out there these days, but he still believes in a bright future for the over-saturated genre with the right approach. Speaking in one of its episodes you are inside podcast, Gunn assured that the DC film and television slate wouldn’t go overboard with new content and mocked-up stories that didn’t try to differentiate themselves from typical superhero stories.
Along with Safran, Gunn already has a loaded slate planned for DC’s future under their direction, including plenty of films. Superman: Legacy And Bold and courageous As well as television series Animal Commando, Booster GoldAnd Waller Among other things. There’s a lot on the docket, but it’s spilled over as part of DC’s ten-year plan to get back on track. Gunn assured that DC Studios will not overextend itself and oversaturate the market with mediocre superhero content. “We’re going to be very careful with the product we put out and make sure everything is as good as it can be,” he said.
The main thing he wants DC to avoid, however, is making superhero movies for no reason other superhero movies are popular. He personally finds that lack of creativity is what ultimately burns people out in such stories, adding:
“People get really lazy with their superhero stories. And they get to the point where, ‘Oh, it’s a superhero, let’s make a movie about it.’ And then, ‘Oh, let’s make a sequel, because the first one did so well,’ and they’re not thinking, ‘Why is this story special? What makes this story different from other stories? What’s the story? The heart of it all? Why this character? Important? What makes this story different is that it fulfills the need for people to see it in the theater?”
