It’s no secret that it’s hard to end a story. Just look at the number of sequels that are released. Why complete a story when you don’t want to let go of the characters? When you still have more ideas for it? …When you could keep making money off it? Maintaining quality, that’s why.
Logan is the first real ‘end’ in the superhero franchises, excluding standalone trilogies like The Dark Knight and Spiderman. There’s a lot to learn from its willingness to let go of such a popular storyline.
I went into Rogue One expecting a romance.
Really, who didn’t? There was a girl and a guy for main characters, so obviously sparks would fly.

I adore the 2013 The Great Gatsby movie. It’s one of the few places I can confidently say, *clears throat* I like the movie better than the book *villagers scream*.
Or, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice versus Captain America: Civil War, and what we writers can learn from the flop of one and success of the other (any guesses which is which?).
