Studios like Warner and Sony can't seem to help themselves; they always overload the comic book movies with too many villains, burning thru them early, and not giving any single one of them enough time to fully develop.

I think it's peculiar to comic book movies, because you don't see that kind of piling-on as much in other genres. If you have a complex political thriller movie script, they don't often insist you throw in two or three more parallel consiracy plots alongside the main one. And in romantic comedies, it would be like adding several more leading men and ladies, instead of using supporting characters.

But in a comic book movie, the studio seems afraid to pin the whole film on just one villain per film. It's gotta be a (redacted) bad-guy convention. And it leaves less material around to make a good sequel with.
