A heaping plate of filler

I don't understand the obsession with Marvel movies.

I've seen a few of them and not because I wanted to. They seem pointless to me. They're all the same. They end with cliffhangers to lead you back to the theater for the next movie. It's expensive to go the theater to see them. The acting is not that great. The writing is no better than most television shows. I've seen elementary school plays that were more entertaining.

I think they are pumping them out so fast to keep the momentum going. They keep throwing it at us so we don't have time to figure out this isn't good.

We keep spending more and more money on it so we exclude other movies from having a chance. Marvel takes up three or four screens of the theater so there's no room for anything else.

Maybe one day people will wake up and decide there is more to life than watching mass-produced pointless fluff.
