Martin Deer wonders whether comic book movies could be fueling the Hollywood reboot culture...

Remakes in Hollywood are certainly not a new thing. 1957's An Affair to Remember starring Cary Grant, considered one of the most romantic films of all time, is actually a remake of the 1939 film Love Affair. Alfred Hitchcock remade his own 1934 movie The Man Who Knew Too Much in 1956, and basically since the 1920s when many silent films were remade to include sound, remakes have been a part of Hollywood. But recently it has felt like we're constantly hearing of films being remade - and in particular beloved franchises getting the remake treatment - and I'm wondering if perhaps comic book movies might have a little something to do with that.

In 2005 Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. released Batman Begins, a reboot to the Batman movie franchise which had fallen apart eight years earlier with Batman & Robin. »
