Marvel Revolutionized Hollywood and That’s Good News for Conservatives

Marvel Revolutionized Hollywood and That’s Good News for Conservatives

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

There was the sound revolution that came with Al Jolson’s “Jazz Singer”; the Easy Rider-Raging Bull revolution with the end of the Production Code; the blockbuster revolution borne of “Jaws” and “Star Wars”; and the independent revolution of the 90s. Now, for better or worse, the Marvel Revolution is official, and that’s good new for conservative movie lovers. 

There is no getting around the fact that the Marvel Universe concept has, like previous film revolutions, changed almost entirely the way Hollywood does business; at least the business of blockbusters in the foreseeable future.

It is no longer just Marvel packing the blockbuster release calendar years in advance with its “universe,” it is also Warner Brothers (Superman, Batman), Disney (Star Wars), Sony (Spider-Man), and Fox (X-Men, Fantastic Four). 

This is also a big win for conservatives who had grown tired of Hollywood’s attempt to mainstream nihilism, anti-Americanism, and sleaze. 

Insanely expensive superhero universe franchises are aimed at pleasing the widest possible audience and therefore almost always embrace conservative themes of heroism, self-sacrifice, and human liberty. For the most part, these films are good for our culture: masculine men, nobility,  good versus evil. 

Except for what drives the villain, anti-human nihilism is nowhere to be found in successful superhero blockbusters. Parents can also relax without having to worry about excessive language and nudity. These films also tend to make noble the importance of the individual, duty, and what it means to be human.
