Darker =/= Better

the new superman trailer looks cool but i can't help thinking darker, more realistic superman will be kind of a chore to watch. List is shit that was ruined by being dark.
1 Star Wars


episode 3, mainly the scene when he kills the younglings i mean what the fuck.
2James Bond


The Casino Royale reboot worked great to make bond cool again (and by cool i mean more than gadgets and effects), but writing idiotic storylines in circles around brooding superhero-spy bullshit makes for bad (quantum) at worst and meh (skyfall) at best.
3Hulk


hulk smash > most dramatic hulk story
4Hopefully we never have to write this about spiderman


while i didn't really dig the new one, i was ok with the tone. Sure, I preferred raimi's universe, but webb's flick had a good feel to it (and it looked fine)

10 Not Batman
dark batman works


but like he's fucking called the dark knight of course it works. What's more: comical, goofy interpretations (from bat nipples all the way back to effeminate robin) serve as enduring jokes because of how much better batman is dark. But how successful nolan's trilogy was will inevitably ripple and probably ruin a lot of great shit about superhero movies.
