Ok, so as you probably already know there have been a lot of movies that have come out in recent years based on comic books. Here's a list of the ones I can think of (post if you have more):
I also hear there will be a Ghost Rider movie coming out soon as well as the ever present Superman franchise. While making Batman and Superman movies is nothing new, what is with this trend? Is it easy to make a movie where the story line and scenes are already drawn out for you? Is it an attempt just to make action movies with tons of special effects? What gives? When is the Green Lantern coming out?
