What I mean is, do you think that superhero films will fall from relevance the way westerns once did? From the 40's to late 70's early 80's westerns were all over the place in American cinema, with many actors such as John Wayne and Clint Eastwood making names from themselves. There were movies such as High Noon, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, the Searchers as well as TV series' such as Gunsmoke, which ran for 20 years and Bonanza. Ultimately sci fi films and tv series aroused the publics interest more and eventually Westerns faded in relevance. The genre briefly resurfaced in the 90's with Unforgiven, Dances With Wolves and Tombstone earning critical and commercial praise. So currently superheroes are extremely profitable but for how long? Let me know what you think.

Yeah eventually superheroes movies will die down. They can only do but so much or else they'll have to create new comic book characters and that won't have quite the impact that say Superman or Captain America would since they aren't classic superheroes.1
