The much talked about superhero-fatigue in Hollywood seems more like a fad than an actual concern. While it remains to be the dominant genre in movies, there certainly has not been any overflow of such films, not in 2015 at least.
"...2015 hasn't been as heavy a year for big comic book movies as we've had, nor is it close to what we're getting in 2016 (and beyond)," states a Den of Geek report. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill was asked about this "superhero fatigue" and the actor explained how being the most popular genre right now has led to people simply complaining about these films.
"I think it's anything which is prevalent and on top people are going to complain about," Cavill said while promoting his latest spy comedy - The Man from U.N.C.L.E. "At the moment, the superhero genre is the most prevalent genre out there despite the fact that the spy genre is so strong this year. That's just the nature of it."
"It's one of those decade-long genres, the superhero thing, which is going to keep on going and people will complain about it all the time, of course," he added. "The secondary genre each year will change, and this year it just so happened to be spy."
Cavill is in the thick of Hollywood's "superhero world" of movies as he plays Superman in Warner Bros' DC Cinematic Universe. The actor will be next seen in Batman v Superman which releases on 25 March, 2016.
