Last week, The films that made us returned with its third season on Netflix. The documentary series has covered a variety of films ranging from Alone at home To Robocop. But given their modern popularity, superhero fans might wonder if the series will end up covering a superhero movie. Christopher Reeve’s first Superman film and Tim Burton’s Batman appear to be viable subjects as they debuted at the time The movie that made us generally covers. Surprisingly, series creator Brian Volk-Weiss has another much newer superhero movie in mind if the series decides to feature a superhero genre film.
“If we did, it would be Iron Man“, says Volk-Weiss ComicBook.com during a telephone interview. “I don’t even know if he actually qualifies, but if he does, he barely qualifies as ‘vintage.’ I think this movie came out in 2008. That would be. Iron Man. It would be Iron Man because it is the oldest. It would be Iron Man because Iron Man is the most important because if Iron Man had failed, nothing else would have happened. And also, I love this story of seeing not only a movie come together, but a universe come together. “
These days Marvel Studios tends to document things internally through projects like Assembled marvel on Disney +. Even though Disney gave The films that made us the access he needs to edit an episode on Iron Man, it is not known if this would correspond to the priorities of the show. Volk-Weiss is directing an upcoming Star Trek documentary, The central headquarters, for History. We asked if there had ever been any discussion about the cover of a Star Trek movie, maybe Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, to The films that made us.
“Was that their discussion? Yes, absolutely,” Volk-Weiss said. “But Netflix, I know I’m saying the obvious, but they’re the ones who write the check. I’ve never worked with a company better than Netflix. I mean, they changed my life personally. They changed the course. of my life. the trajectory of the business. It’s the biggest business. But they have a lot of data, and if I would come up to them and say, “Hey, we should do Star Trek II, don’t get me wrong, these movies work great, but there’s a reason we do it. Alone at home. There’s a reason we make the movies we make, though, thank goodness let me sneak in RoboCop in this year.
“But generally we want four quadrant movies. And what that means is that for anyone who doesn’t know it’s young people, old people, men, women, everyone. And that’s what we’re trying to do. And also multi-generational My generation grew up with Alone at home, and the next two generations – including my children – they love Alone at home as much as me, if not more. So that’s what we’re trying to do. “
Note that Netflix has not officially renewed The films that made us for another season, nor its sister series, The toys that made us, at least not yet. That’s not to say Volk-Weiss and his team at The Nacelle Company aren’t yet at work.
“We’re working on it right now,” he said. “It’s always one of those areas where I have to be a little wary, but there are things going on. I’m going to leave it weirdly vague like that, but there are things happening… Good things are in motion. . “
What do you think? Let us know in the comments. The three seasons of The films that made us are now streaming on Netflix.
