Superhero films are a mixed bag. Perhaps nothing illustrates this better than the contrast between Fantastic Four (2015) and Deadpool (2016), the two most recent Marvel Comic based films developed outside of Marvel Studios. Why did one film become a runaway success while the other a very expensive failure? Is it good decision making by the respective producers, writers and directors? Or is just possible that some properties just can’t make the transition to live action successfully? Opinions vary. Note: this episode contains SPOILERS . . . for two films released months ago.
