It seems like there are a lot of video game movies in pre-production over at Hollywood. My guess is that most (read: nearly all) won't get made. But here's my question: do you foresee a future where video game movies are as popular as comic book movies?
My gut instinct is to say 'no'. Video games franchises, for all the bluster of them being the biggest money makers in media, are still relatively niche. Most people know who Spiderman is, not everyone knows who Solid Snake is.
I feel as though maybe a handful of properties have the potential to be real money spinners for a brave Director/Studio. Halo is one of them I think, maybe Uncharted? But it all depends on the right script and the right execution.
Is there a game out there with the box office earning potential of The Avengers/Iron Man/Batman?
