"Serious and gritty" and "fun and lighthearted" superhero movies coexisted in the early 2000's, how come it seems impossible now?
>>
>Marvel releasing fun and lighthearted movies

>DC is doing serious and gritty

I'm not seeing the problem here.

GRIT IS THE FUTURE, KEVIN, NOT FUN

FUN NO LONGER MATTERS

But BvS seems over-the-top and CW feels down-to-Earth.

Super hero movies wasn't such a huge fucking deal back then. It wasn't a billion dollar industry where cape movies were being made every other week. Now an imaginary line in the sand has been drawn and the fans 'need' to pick sides so one of them can make more money than the other.

XMen movies were not 'serious and gritty'.

>But BvS seems over-the-top

Why? Because of one trailer? The Singer movies were pretty gritty, and the first one ended with Magneto strapping Rogue to a mutant-crating machine that he installed in the Statue of Liberty so it's mutation waves would hit the entire city.

Gritty can also be over-the-top. Shrek Doomsday doesn't preclude the movie from being serious.

>and CW feels down-to-Earth.

Down-to-earth is pretty relative for the MCU.

Kek, how does it feel to be 12 years old OP?

ZACK, PLEASE, GRIT WILL NOT BRING PEOPLE JOY

X-Men and Spider-Man both had very serious moments, and some silly moments too.

They were pretty serious and gritty at the time. They had political subtext, harsh language and hard-hitting action in contrast with the influx of cap movies at the time.

BvS just seems very grandiose. Look at that scene with Superman unmasking Batman. It's very, I don't know, melodramatic. The whole movie seems to be.

Who's Stryker, then? James Cameron?

It's not down to earth at all. That's why it's great.

CW = Civil War.

That's a dream sequence you retard.

the word you're looking for is homoerotic

>>77946492
Everything is melodramatic, not only that. Look at literally everything from Eisemberg's Luthor.

>>77946135
I think you need to take a break from /co/.

This is everywhere that takes this movies in our amount of seriousness.
