I had this thought while watching Altered Carbon, then reading a thread on here about a sequel to Deadpool. Deadpool, all of the Marvel superhero ones, the Black Panther, Thor, Altered Carbon... I know that most [all?] of these movies have the comic book theme in common, but we could be talking about action movies more generally and every film released at the moment seems to be based on comic books, and there is something infantilising about that anyway. It all just seems so samey, as if whoever is making these movies and series is using the same template and just altering surface level details in order to ensure that it appeals sufficiently to whichever group is the intended audience.
