See, Brand Recognition is what is employed to bring us movies like Battleship. Everyone knows what the game Battleship is about, so if they make a movie named Battleship, people with recognize the title and connect with the movie even though it has little or nothing to do with said title. IE Look for Tetris: The Movie coming soon to a theatre near you.
So, this *might* be why Marvel is re-doing Secret Wars. We may be on the cusp of a grand new story that will have nothing to do with the original but share it’s name so that they can capitalize on that Brand Recognition.
Or we could be re-hashing things we’ve already seen over and over again because, well, comics.
So we’ll have to see. I guess it depends on how hopeful you are that Marvel knows what it’s doing.
Yeah… Yeah, I know.
