Subj: Movie Adaptations....
Posted: Thu Sep 21, 2017 at 02:08:45 pm EDT (Viewed 207 times)

Poring over recent high profile Superhero movie releases such as Man of Steel and Wonder Woman and it struck me that neither of these films, so far as I am aware, had a comicbook adaptation supporting them... which is an odd thing to consider if you remember the support given to the film adaptations in years gone by.

Any thoughts as to why this move away from straight adaptaions might be? Perhaps the simple fact is the rise of instant online streaming and access to the films themselves has made producing a comicbook academic in 2017; after all back in the day the adaptation would be your only quick and lasting way to have an on-hand record of the films story and allow you to re-experience it. Or are there other factors worth considering here...? \(euh\)
