8. The sucess of Batman Begins (a reboot) in 2005

And The Dark Knight (2008), and Star Trek (2009) has put Hollywood into a reboot frenzy.

The first two films in a series films are usually great but the later sequels tend to suck.

The first Batman (1989) was very good, Batman Returns was good, but Batman Forever and Batman & Robin sucked.

Superman The Movie was great, Superman II was great, but Superman III and Superman IV sucked, and Superman Returns was only so-so.

Star Trek ran out of steam after First Contact (#8). Insurrection (#9) and Nemesis (#10) both sucked.

Let's face it, there's only so many times you can have the superhero save the world from a super powered villain before you start to run out of them. Plus the writers tend to write themselves into corners they have a hard time getting out of.

So the easiest answer is a reboot, and you get some hot, young actor at a cheaper price. I heard Tobey Maguire wanted too much money after Spiderman 3.
