Just an observation. If you look at the box office results pre Man of Steel, action movies did quite well. From Iron Man 3 to Furious 6 to Star Trek Into Darkness. Post MOS, family films and comedies have done great. The only action film that overperformed was World War Z, but it only opened a week after MOS. As you could see how front loaded MOS is with its box office, perhaps audiences got turned off from its overkill of repetitious violence and a soulless and humorless superhero. From the The Lone Ranger to Pacific Rim to yes, even Wolverine have underperformed at the box office while Despicable Me, Grown Ups 2 (gulp!), Monsters University, and The Heat have done excellent. I bet if The Hangover 3 was released after MOS, it would have been more successful!OK. Just my rant. I hated MOS and blame everything on it.
