Is anyone else tired of comic book movies?

They are currently making more comic movies and shows than I am interested in seeing.  I watched Shang-Chi and Black Widow on Disney+ over the holiday weekend and I frankly got a little bored.  I think the movies themselves were fine, but I’m just tired of the Marvel superhero movie formula at this point.  
 

If I’m reaching the point where I’m tired of these movies and shows, I gotta think that the average movie viewer can’t be far behind. 
 

Is anyone else thinking along these lines?

Agreed, the formula is way overused at this point.  You and I have discussed this more than once but I don't think it's going to change until they get punished at the box office.

Also, glad you're getting caught up on the movies!  :baiting: :wink:  :foryou:  :devil:

Plenty of other movies to see 

I love how HBO max has a large selection of criterion collection movies

watched La Strada (saw it many years ago) the other night 

the marvel formula is a Disney formula used on all their movies

do not expect this to change

Once Disney took over the MCU, I lost interest.  I'll still watch the next Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, but I haven't seen anything since Avengers: Endgame.  That was the end of the story for me...so to speak.  I'm not even sure if I'll pay attention to any upcoming DC movies.  It's a money grab, in my opinion.  Kind of pathetic....(shrug)

Can’t agree with the most of the sentiments echoed so far. When you also factor in wandavision and Loki the MCU is developing lots of characters I frankly ignored when I was a kid buying comics. The reimagined movies, while often irritatingly preachy are still fun to watch.
