And sometimes, you can tell these films, deep down, want to be "B" movies. Here are 10 huge-budget movies that would have been more fun with less money.
Tons of people are saying a woman can't star in a superhero movie. (Just like they probably said an interconnected superhero universe couldn't happen at the movies.) Stan Lee says there's no need. But a good superheroine movie is necessary and doable. Here are eight ways to make a movie about a female superhero movie…
This month is like exhibit A for Hollywood's propensity to churn out sequels that nobody asked for. You've got Journey 2, opening today. And then next week, there's Ghost Rider 2, in which Nic Cage tries to "improve" upon the first flaming-skull motorcycle movie.

Kick-Ass wasn't a box-office sensation, but it may have helped superhero films break out of their same old boring mold, the Guardian suggests. Here are eight other superhero films that Hollywood can study, which helped avoid the same old cliches.
Pierre Morel (Taken) has reportedly quit as director of Frank Herbert's Dune, which Peter Berg was also on board to direct at one point. And unless Paramount can get the film up and running by spring, they'll lose the rights.
The summer of 2010 was a bit underwhelming as far as movies went — but summer 2011's looking like the craziest of them all, with the densest concentration of nerd-candy ever. At least, Jon Favreau is calling it a "bloodbath."

Hancock 2 may be missing a key castmember. Plus Deadpool's producers make big promises! There are spoilery Dollhouse clips, and telltale pics from Lost, 2012, The Box and Planet 51. Also: FlashForward, Warehouse 13, Smallville, Chuck and True Blood spoilers!
The next Hancock, presumably called Hancock 2: We're Sorry, is moving forward with the announcement that Charlize Theron is coming along for the ride. This most likely means director Peter Berg's Dune will be pushed back another two years. [MTV]
Hancock 2 has writers: Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara worked together on The Shield, and Fiero also wrote for Dexter and 24. So fingers crossed. [THR]
New pictures reveal Jamie Bamber's role in Dollhouse, and Thor may have a female Asgardian. Plus: explosive images from Gamer and Supernatural, visits to the sets of Stargate Universe and The Vampire's Assistant. Also? Hancock 2, Fringe, Eclipse, and Lost.

As if I Am Legend 2 wasn't bad enough, the former Fresh Prince is promising that we'll definitely see a second installment of this summer's Hancock. Apparently we were all very bad in a previous life or something. [JoBlo]
Will Smith's deadbeat superhero comedy Hancock is out on DVD this week, and that means one thing - you can finally watch the infamous ballistic sperm scene. Find out for yourself why Hancock belongs on our list of sexually frustrated superheroes, by watching the clip below.
While Will Smith's Hancock may have failed to kill the superhero trend in movies this summer, we think we've identified the actor who stands the most chance of being the unwelcome nail in this genre coffin - Seth Rogen. It's not enough for him to be writing and starring in the upcoming Green Hornet movie. Now he's…
Two superhero paparazzi stumble onto the truth: everybody's favorite superhero is nothing more than a villain in disguise. That's the plot of Rob Liefeld's graphic novel Capeshooters, soon to be a movie produced by Bryan Singer. It sounds timely and cute, and I'm excited by any fresh superhero characters, but let's…
With the continued, somewhat inexplicable, success of Hancock, it seems that the only constant in Hollywood math is "(Will Smith) + (4th of July Weekend) x (Genre Movie) = $$$." Bearing that in mind, we thought that it's be kind of us to demonstrate to some stalled SF movie projects just to how to use the Fresh Prince…
Won't somebody think of the bullied kids? They're everywhere, including several of this summer's biggest movies. Everywhere you look, kids are roughed up, getting robbed of their lunch money, having their car keys tossed in a sewer (in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem). Even Shia got hassled by jocks in last summer's …
