Changed the idea of what an action hero was and brought on a whole slew of imitators...

I almost posted Iron Man just simply because it started the "shared universe" idea that everyone's trying to emulate these days.

Spidey brought superhero movies back to life in the new millennium after they were killed off by Batman's nipples in the 1990s.

X-men usually gets credited for it, since it was more or less the one to test the waters and had one of the highest openings at the time (back in 2000, it opening at $54m was HUGE. Considering before then the biggest opening was The Lost World at $72m. It ranked around 6th best opening weekend up to that point in time, man have times changed. 15 years later and a $54m opening for most big movies is a disappointment )

Spider-man being the first movie to opening over $100m certainly solidified that.

Anyway, this is what was going on in Marvel's head back in 2004: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/27/mo...-can.html?_r=0, keep in mind that most of it is about Avi Arad, who left Marvel Studios to make Bratz: The Movie.

Maybe but not for the better. Actually, I don't think it reinvented horror, it woke it from a long slumber.
