i agree with you all the way. i think hollywood feels like we're too dumb to understand anything unless it spells out the entire story for us. no need to make us think for ourselves because we couldn't figure anything out anyway. guess they feel they can get more butts in the seats if they wrap everything up into one big package.
like the "Spawn" movie......"let's do away with any dynamic storytelling and just start from the beginning of how this all started. no one will understand what's going on if we just start off on top of a church and have to explain things with these piece-meal flashbacks." "can we get a wayans brother?" "no...but we got the next best thing, john leguizamo." "it's brilliant!"

In regards to your comments about why Hollywood has this interest in origins and prequels is simple.....Money.....If there is money to be made they will milk and stretch whatever it may be for all it's worth.
Did Underworld really need a prequel to set the story straight? Of course not, but they saw an opportunity to make a quick buck and threw a bunch of stuff together, that we already knew about for that matter.... and made it.
Sure, things can become less interesting as the mystique of a character for instance is now known, but more movies mean more money. Plain and simple. Comics, books, whatever can't even come close to what a movie and all it's licensing generates.
Look at the ratios, the amount of people that would rather see a movie then to read a comic or book about a subject has gotta be obscene. That's why what you mention doesn't work. Sad may be, but true.
It didn't necessarily have to. Aren't we already at that juncture to where things have happened in the movie that didn't happen in the story anyway? No, I'm not trying to make it worse. All I was saying that could possibly exist was an angle to where and while making it believable for reason of having a mask/faceplate, was perhaps something he or Destro did that caused him to change/mutate. He supposedly is a scientist in this no?
And for the record, changing/mutating in THIS instance doesn't necessarily have to have anything to do with a snake, *You* inferred that, not me. Lalalalalala........
You don't have to go there tho. If you wanna say that the explosion or accident was enough, thus warranting his need for the mask/faceplate, fair enough. I was only adding a possible scenario for additional back story.
