It would have stopped them making money if we had had 32 high profile ones dominating cinema for the last 15 years. We actually have had about 5, if you count the made-for-streaming Benoît Blanc movies.Most action movies and many detective stories are very formulaic, too. That never stopped them from making money.
Of course, they tend to be much cheaper to make than superhero moves, so they don't have to rule the multiplexes to make a profit.
That's detective stories of course. Action movies are harder to count, since most superhero movies are also action movies. But if you count the FF franchise, failed attempts like Uncharted, and direct-to-streaming like Red Notice, they also seem to be struggling somewhat.
No, that was not my intent.Basically, I don't think your statement here changes mine appreciably.
