Please, not another origin story

I’m really getting tired of ‘origin story’ movies. They feel greedy.

Fun:

Superheroes superheroing

Not fun:

Superheroes not superheroing

Why make movies about superheroes not superheroing? I get that some feel it’s not a complete universe if it’s not explained where a character came from, but it doesn’t look like that’s why they’re being made now.

It looks to me like companies are intent on ‘launching a franchise’. (Ergh, I hate two of the three words in that phrase). They’re so intent on the money-grabbing franchise that they can end up making an awful movie. And then the franchise fails to take off because of the bad movie that was only made because they wanted to launch a franchise. And then all the good stories go unmade.

Please stop.
