A tradition that began with our very first episode continues here with our 5th Annual State of the Superhero Genre Address. Spoiler alert: the genre we all love is doing very, very well with dozens of films due from Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment Warner Bros., and the X-MEN franchise on Fox. With superhero movies set for a new peak in volume, what challenges will this create for the studios involved? We also look at some of the genre's missed opportunities and areas in which there is catching up to do, like diversity. Additional topics include how many more superhero shows network television can withstand and new distribution options, recent anti-superhero sentiments, and the pros and cons of the shared universe model. There is so much to talk about and we get to the state of it all along with exciting updates about the future of podcasts at Modern Myth Media!
