Is Hollywood Killing Superhero Genre? Director Matthew Vaughn Says Yes! 

"Kick-Ass" director Matthew Vaughn, currently shooting "X-Men: First Class" in London, said Hollywood is the kryptonite to the superhero genre's Superman. Soon, the superhero movie, as we know it, will die according to Vaughn talking to the Los Angeles Times.

"It's been mined to death and in some cases the quality control is not what it's supposed to be," Vaughn said. "People are just going to get bored of it."

It's a strong statement coming from a director whose superhero movie will open next summer along with "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Thor" and "Green Lantern."

But let's see if the director's take on the "X-Men" franchise will be better than Brett Ratner's 2006 film "X-Men: The Last Stand." I'm a fan of Vaughn's last two films namely "Kick-Ass" and the criminally-underseen "Stardust." So I have hopes...
