As one who watches the movie industry closely, I’ve seen a lot of big movies that have some build up leading up to their release. Movies like the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series had huge anticipations leading up to their release, but none of those even come close to the anticipation that Avengers:Age of Ultron is currently getting. It’s not a long shot to say that this movie is going to be huge, probably the biggest opening weekend of all time. Most of us see that it’s going to be a giant movie, but why is the Avenger’s franchise and, more specifically Marvel Studios movies, so big? Well, there are some really good reasons for it and no one else currently in the movie industry even come close to matching them.
Many people may think the reason for the success is that the movies may seem like one giant commercial for the world’s best pre workout supplement that will send most guys heading home to Google search testosterone booster reviews so they can look like Chris Hemsworth. But, the truth is that the real secret to the success of the Avengers and Marvel movies in general is the consistency they possess. They took the same strategy that worked in the comics and brought them into their movies. The Avengers work because each movie for the individual superheroes is not just an isolated story that takes place outside the universe of the other movies, but instead each movie is like an ingredient that helps make a delicious dish. That dish just happens to be The Avengers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s tremendous.
It’s All In The Details
When comic book movies began to be made, they made giant mistakes by not paying attention to the details. This happened for many reasons, but one of the main reasons was that the movies were being written by hollywood screenwriters and not comic book writers or writers who were familiar with the stories of the comics. This eventually became a slap in the face to the millions of comic book fans out there because the writers took too many liberties with the characters and ultimately changed some characters entirely. When Marvel began making movies, they used only the best writers who were familiar with the comic’s original source material and paid attention to the details that made each character unique. It may not seem like much, but it’s a small thing that makes a huge difference when you build a cinematic universe like Marvel has.
It Plays To All Crowds
One of the biggest reasons for the massive success of the Marvel movies is that it plays to all crowds, young and old. They do a masterful job of making the movies dramatic and intense enough for the millions of comic books fans that grew up with these characters and light enough that kids love them just as much. This is not an easy task, but it’s one that Marvel has been accomplishing better than anyone else in the industry today.
