This week on The Collision, we talk about the realness of superhero movies, the worlds they present, the verisimilitude to our own, the limits of relating to characters and their setting, making “gritty” synonymous with “reality”, and more. We also take apart the lazy and confused Kick-Ass 2. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
