Broken Projector: Imagining A Diverse Future for Superhero Movies

Storm in Days of Future Past

Twentieth Century Fox

More genres, more stories, more women. This week we welcome on Screen Rant‘s Ben Kendrick for an omnibus discussion of the amazing, as-yet-unrealized potential for superhero movies. At what point will audiences get bored with the same rehashed stories? At what point will one superhero movie lose big to another superhero movie in a crowded summer? At what point will studios develop the guts to take real risks?

The future may be sooner than we think.

Plus, Geoff challenges me to a round of Interrogation Reviewification for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, asking perhaps the most difficult question this series has ever heard.

You should follow Ben (@benkendrick), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.
