Chris Nolan says "no" to making another superhero movie and also say that Hollywood have forgotten there is more to a movie than just a plot

Story at Variety

Christian Bale is probably not going to play Batman again after Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. The Oscar-winning actor told ScreenRant last summer that he would only play Batman for a fourth time if Christopher Nolan was directing, but Nolan doesn’t appear to be interested in returning to the comic book genre. YouTuber HugoDécrypte asked Nolan point blank if he would make "another superhero movie." Nolan bluntly answered, "No."

To make his point about visuals vs plot, Nolan discusses the strengths of Star Wars and how much that film depended upon a sophisticated and innovative "audio-visual" approach.

Story problems effecting the MCU

Story at Cinemablend

I am a ride or die fan of Marvel Studios, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No matter what story they choose to tell, I will anticipate it with the same kind of excitement as a child on Christmas Eve, ready to unwrap a new present. That’s why I’ve circled the (constantly changing) release dates for such upcoming Marvel movies as The Marvels, Deadpool 3, and Captain America: Brave New World. But even a rabid fan like me can tell that the studio is painting itself into a corner as it heads into Phase 5, and I’m not sure what it can do to right the ship as it moves forward.

Barry Diller: What if the strike leads to a total collapse of Hollywood?Mediaite

Diller called for a settlement deadline of September 1, and said there could be catastrophic ramifications if the strikes extend into the fall. "Who cares about Hollywood?" Diller said — referencing what he believes to be overriding public sentiment on the issue. "Who cares about it? But the truth is, this is a huge business! Both domestically and for world exporters. … But these conditions will potentially produce an absolute collapse of an entire industry." The IAC chief acknowledged the “existential issues” at play, and said there is "no trust between the parties" — which could prolong the strikes.

Wired explains how to sell your old comic booksWired

...there's a few things you should know. While there've been some spikes in the sales of very old and rare comic lots in recent years, you shouldn't expect to get rich if your comics collection doesn't go back much further than the 1980s or '90s. Even if you still have a 1993 first-printing copy of The Death of Superman, you still might only get $10 to $20 by selling, unless it's in nearly perfect condition or it's signed and certified.
