If you’ve notice a shortage of action films at the local multiplex, you’re not alone.
Actor and director Sylvester Stallone says the number of action films has decreased in recent years and he thinks he knows why–super hero movies.
“This genre unfortunately is becoming … let’s just say it’s fading away,” Sly said of action cinema. “You have the superheroes today which are possessed with all extraordinary powers; they can blink and a fireball comes out of there. It’s great. And then you have a bunch of us which is just your basic male-pattern baldness. Kind of like hands-on action.”
Do you agree with Sly that super heroes are killing the action movie star? Or is this just a trend that will someday reverse itself?
