Sean, Andrew, and Lynn continue to explore the story devices people say they want to see in superhero movies and the attitudes that threaten to keep audiences from getting it. From Zack Snyder's casual dismissal of Marvel's successes when talking up his upcoming Batman/Superman film to M Night Shyamalan's prescient and subtle examination of the superhero legend in Unbreakable, there's a varied sensibility when it comes to these movies. But what works and what do people really want? And what happens when you actually give it to them?
