But the movies are mostly adaptations of old comic books. I just watched 2014's X-Men Days of Future Past, which was a story from 1981. The Infinity War comes from a 1991 series. If there was never a comic published again there would still be movie material for the next thousand years.How could the comic book possibly be dead when two out of every three movies in the theater these days are from comic books?
Unless everyone just expects the next adventure to be on the big screen now. But really, they can't make movies that fast.
Comic books are in one of the biggest growth periods of all time, and not because of the handful of DC and Marvel titles that have been made into films. Manga also has a growing international popularity.Comics are still around but exist mostly to be advertisements for films.
