Get this; there will be eight superhero movies from Marvel and DC Comics out this year. That's almost one a month! Obviously the villains aren’t getting the job done. Right now there's Captain America: Civil War crushing the box office, but are we on the verge of superhero fatigue?  Yes, it's a thing, but have no fear, Brian Corsetti and Movie Critic, David Ramsey, are here to save us with three ways to help fight superhero fatigue.


1.  Stick with the Superheroes You Know and Like

Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, those are all terrific movies, and they will all probably continue to be so.



2.  Trust Movie Critics

If you don't know a critic you trust, try Rotten Tomatoes, which gives you the critic consensus. 'Batman V Superman,' as an example, has about 27% good reviews. That will help you decide whether to rush out and see it that weekend, or wait until it comes to a dollar theater, or on pay per view.



3.  Be Wary of Reboots

For every Batman Begins, there's a Fantastic Four,. And the last Fantastic Four only has 9% positive reviews from critics. We gave them millions of dollars and they gave us nothing back, except less money in our wallets, and less time in our lives.



4.  Lower Your Expectations

If you go in thinking it's going to be the greatest movie ever and it's not, you'll be disappointed. If you go in thinking we'll see how this goes and it's good, you'll be very happy.


Now you’re ready to fight superhero fatigue, as superheroes and supervillains fight and fight and fight…


Captain America: Civil War is a great movie, but do we really need to see costumed heroes save the planet... again? Join the conversation on our Facebook page, @TheListShowTV.
