I think that I'm the only person who doesn't care about the current most popular comicbook movies - The Avengers, The Ant Man and the like. I don't think that anything has interested me less than American superheroes. They seem so shallow to me, lacking any kind of real emotional depth and flaws. In general, I dislike cliche "badass" characters of any gender and background, and I guess that's the reason.
I think it depends on what you're looking for, and how you approach the material. The original Avengers
was simply the most fun I had had at the movies in a long, long, LONG time, and then last year Guardians of the Galaxy
was the most fun I'd had at the movies since Avengers. So from the popcorn movie perspective, it was nerdgasms all over the place, but it's not the place you want to go if you're looking for a bit more grit, nuance, or complexity.
Fortunately, I think the craft of Superhero filmmaking is maturing as well, especially after Nolan's Batman trilogy; it became plausible (and, well, marketable) to go the tortured, gritty route. Now we have series like Daredevil
and Jessica Jones
to scratch your itch for complexity, along with lighter fare like Guardians or The Flash
. It's kind of an awesome time to like superheros, really
