Superhero Movies Post 2001

Heather, Jeff, and Rusty finish up their superhero movie talk for now with a look at the genre after 2002 and Sam Reimi’s adaptation of Spider-Man which ushered in the “Golden Age of Marvel”. They talk about the changes in scope of the superhero formula, the reasons behind the glut of films with people in spandex, and where they’re headed. Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy starts a discussion of the differences in approach between the Marvel and DC adaptations to film, leading to movies about would be superheroes in Kick-Ass and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog. The recent film Deadpool and Netfilx’s first season of Jessica Jones are discussed.
