Are There Too Many Superhero Projects?

Yes, hell yes! I never thought I’ll be saying this but I’m suffering from comics overload here. There are just too many superhero shows and movies!

On TV currently, there’s Arrow, Flash, Agent of SHIELD, Peggy Carter, Gotham, Powers, and Constantine. Upcoming superhero movies include Avengers 2 (coming out next month), Superman/Batman, Ant-man, Fantastic Four, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Gambit, and Doctor Strange. All these movies by the end of 2016!

Outside these movies, there’s various (almost countless) upcoming television projects going around. Daredevil, (Luke) Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Defenders, iZombie, and SuperGirl are all awaiting their turn on the small screen. 

And that’s just the Big 2! Outside DC and Marvel, Valiant just signed a major mutli-movie/TV deal and independent projects like Supercrooks are also to be rumored to be in the pipelines. There’s also Heroes, Hancock 2, Kick-Ass 3 and (if they can get Angelina Jolie) Wanted 2.

How many projects is that? One too many in my view. Hollywood and the comics industry need to be careful and don’t go kill the golden goose.
