There is no shortage today of comic book movies. The universes of Marvel and DC rule at the box office. Don’t worry if you miss one, there’ll be a sequel around in no time and a couple of years later almost certainly a rebirth with a new set of filmmakers and actors. Back in the mists of time – 2000 – that wasn’t the case. There were some around, sure, but box office success was far from guaranteed and more failed than succeeded, even amongst the high profile ones. It was perhaps Bryan Singer’s X-Men that changed the tide – Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man followed a couple of years later and one thing led to another.
