Steven Spielberg is saying something most of us don't want to hear or believe it will one day happen, but he could be right.


In a recent interview with the Associated Press, the legendary movie director acknowledged that in as much as fans are fascinated with superhero movies, the films may no longer have a future in the world of cinema.

"We were around when the Western died," Spielberg told AP, "There will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western," he added.


Unless going "the way of the Western" means 'Iron Man' and 'Captain America' are going to start wearing cowboy boots, this is a little disconcerting. But, hey, what does Spielberg know, right? Besides, his recent project, 'Jurassic World,' went on to become one of the higest-grossing films of all time, but who keeps track of that stuff anyway? ... Right?

Despite the director's ominous prediction, HuffingtonPost reporter, Bill Bradley says fans shouldn't get too concerned just yet. Adding that, "remember, these are superheroes we're talking about, and they never stay dead for long."

Spielberg added that there could always be another time when the superhero movie returns. And with 'Captain America: Civil War,' 'Deadpool' and 'Batman v Superman' all scheduled to come out next year, it doesn't look like they're going to die any time soon. 

However, in the meantime, fans should continue to enjoy the superheros they see now.
