The 2099 line quickly expanded to include 2099 Unlimited, Fantastic Four 2099, Ghost Motorcyclist 2099, Hunk 2099, X-Men 2099, and X-Nation 2099.

The pandemic provoked all kinds of ravages in the entertainment industry, and the particular cinema was one of the most affected. The closure of cinemas around the world caused a lot of movies to be delayed, while some others debuted exclusively in streaming. Marvel even changed his simultaneous release strategy because of this, and according to Ben Affleck , in the future theaters will only be for the great productions of MCU and other important tapes.
As part of a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Affleck declared the following:
I must say, when The Way Back came out, it was launched a week before the cinemas closed. But even before that I knew that a film about the loss, the death of a child and alcoholism was not going to attract people to the cinema. We were talking about Marcos: Mexico, Succession, Mare of East town. They are incredible streaming productions.
If I had to bet, I would say that a drama as Argo would no longer go into cinemas today. And that was not so long ago. It would be a limited series. I think the cinemas will become much more expensive and exclusive places of certain events. Surely they will be more oriented for young people, and the people who say, ‘Yes, I enjoy Marvel’s universe, I can not wait to see what follows later.’ And we will have as 40 films per year in cinemas, all of recognized franchises, or sequela, or animated productions.
Although Affleck admitted that he took a time to accept this idea, his last project finally opened his eyes. The Last Duel, by Ridley Scott, only collected $30.6 million dollars at the US box office.
The last duel really broke me. I have had bad movies previously, but I never care. I knew why people had not gone, because they were not good. But I liked what we did at The Last Duel, I liked my dialogues. I’m very proud of her. Then I got confused. And then I realized that it was very good at streaming, and I thought, ‘There you have it. That’s where our audience is. ‘
And talking about Affleck and Marvel films, recently revealed that the actor could resume the role of him as DAREDEVIL in Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, And here you can read the details about it.
Editor’s note: Affleck certainly has a point, although I think that saying that the cinemas will be exclusive to Marvel or of great productions maybe it is somewhat crazy. Yes, there are movies that work better on streaming, but nothing compares with the experience of going to the cinema physically.
