    Because we get the heroes we deserve, not the ones we need.

    "Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
    So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero.
    He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector.

    A Dark Knight."
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    Its simple. Hollywood execs who decide what movies and shows to produce hate originality. Originality means taking a risk. They would far rather imitate a proven product. A few Superhero movies have been very popular box office successes, so these guys will keep churning more out by the dozen.

    Fortunately you can see any movies you like - and avoid ones you don't.

    Really? How does one conflate say, The Dark Knight and The Incredible Hulk? The superhero genre is as wide ranges as any other genre, and with.... Tighter... audiences.
