Expectations

There have been a lot of really good movies, tv shows, and comic books to be released over the past few years. However, you’d think everything coming out in the “geek/nerd” genre is utter garbage if you spend more than a few minutes on the Internet (with the exception of Black Panther, everyone loves Black Panther).

Why is this happening? Are we getting tired of consuming our favorite characters across multiple mediums? Is there a fatigue? No, the problem is expectations. Since we all have a voice with social media, blogs, podcasts, and video streaming there has been a swell in the expectations and fan ownership of their favorite stories. But is this a good thing? Discuss.

Here are some RECENT examples of unreal expectations and fan backlash:

The Last Jedi
Justice League
Iron Fist
Ready Player One
War for the Planet of the Apes
Power Ranger
