Here's a little equation for you:
"The Dark Knight" is the shit and everyone wants a piece of its nuts.
"The Dark Knight" is dark.
"Superman Returns" flopped at the box office.
Retard studio suits greenlight a "dark" Superman movie.
Somehow they are going to fuck this up. They always milk things the wrong way. "Jaws" had an explosion and was huge, so we got twenty years of explosions, minus the solid acting and plot that "Jaws" had. "The Dark Knight" is moody, so now we're going to get twenty years of brooding emo superheroes.
I can't wait for the Thor movie, now. Probably be something like this:
Malekith: Thor. I have come to battle.
Thor: Not now, Malekith. I am wallowing in darkness.
Malekith: Pick up your mighty hammer, Mjolnir, and fight me.
Thor: What is the nature of this violence? (looks longingly out of a window)
Malekith: Fuck this. I'm out.
(It begins to rain outside. Thor takes off his helmet.)
Or what about the Captain America movie? I'm sure we'll have a whole bunch of "dark WWII scenes" where a shit ton of soldiers die and not one of them bleeds. Then the director can cram fifteen shots into one minute of a three hour movie.
