Things trend in circles. Eventually we'll all get sick of whats cool right now and we'll just buy into some other shitty fantasy genre like vampires or kung fu. And don't even try arguing that kung fu isn't a fantasy genre. You ever watch Ong-bak?Remember the scene where Tony Jaa jumps off a sky scraper and kung fu knees a guy hanging from the helicopter? Or what about the scene where he uses elephant bones to slit the tendons of every evil henchman in a one mile radius of his kill room? Total fantasy genre.
Honestly, though, Fantasy at least has room for color. The dark fantasy trend (which is very alive right now too) is pretty boring.
Also, I don't think the fantasy genre likes other fantasy genre's of the same gender.
