Despite their reputation for being difficult, blockbuster fans are some of the most hopeful fans around. They hope against all logic, all developments from behind the scenes, and all three-minute trailers that their movies will fulfill their expectations—yes, even through their very numerous complaints and casting suggestions. It’s not the notion that they have no life that keeps these fans waiting ever so steadfastly in the rain—it’s their hope that their movies will, despite the odds, be worth it.
Unfortunately, this hope many times goes unrewarded by many filmmakers and/or corporations who, at the end of the day, don’t really seem to care too much about what many fans want (see my first article at WhatCulture about the impending Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie).
But I will not say it is all in vain.
I’m not referring to the unrealistic expectations (there are too many of those for one list). I’m talking about the ones any moviegoer should reasonably be able to dream about.
There are 8 particular things right now that you’ll find fans deliberating online, hoping against hope that they could one day possibly come to pass. Each of these things is perfectly reasonable, and most movie fans would agree that the benefits of many of these points are obvious.
But we need to keep vocal about them, because as of now, they probably won’t happen.
Please filmmakers, prove this list wrong. Please make this article a fun time capsule about how wrong I am.
