Are they all as trite and boring as the trailers?

You might think so, but last I checked they still seem to sell more movie tickets than other kinds of movies.

Also, not everyone is as old and jaded as we are. There are still young people being born every day so theoretically there will always be more people for whom it isn't old yet.

I still enjoy a decent superhero movie once in a while myself, but I don't feel like watching most of them.

For Pyrrho: I think there are a few good ones to choose from. If you want something with more wisecracking, Deadpool was pretty good. The Watchmen is pretty old by now but it had some interesting characters. I liked the Avengers movies too. The trick is to not watch too many mediocre superhero movies and just wait for the one or two good ones that come out every year or two.
