      DC did that in the 90's and it didn't matter. "Superman Returns" came out and they even had a storyline similar in concept but different in execution and it didn't matter. Marvel did that in 2000 with "X-Men" and 2002 with "Spider-Man" and it didn't matter. That's why we had "R.I.P.", "Civil War" and "Back In Black".

    No, that would be doing controversial gimmicks purely for cash.


All comics are about making money. That's how they stay in business. However, two of the three stories I listed were part of larger storylines and not just money gimmicks. Sales also prove that events sell better than non-events.

      It's the hype of the film that translated into sales in 79 and 89. DC and Marvel both did the research.

    More like the surprise of there even being a comic book film.


Doubtful. The response of the day wasn't surprise, but rather how well done the films were based on both the trailers and then the final release.
