The popular thing to do, when discussing the eventual potential fall of the superhero genre, to compare it to the Western.
YouTube essayist Lindsay Ellis has another genre to look at for a point of comparison: the musical.
Yes, the musical. Sure, that one may not seem like the most obvious point of comparison, but Ellis makes a good case for the comparison and where and why the superhero genre might also suffer a similar fate.
She also gets a good slam in on the upcoming Venom movie and a crack or two on the surely oncoming fall of MoviePass, so the video has that going for it.
