I mean you kind of hit on it.
Cinematic history tells us the this probably will be a blockbuster reboot that fails. Everyone loves MBJ but itís a black guy taking the place of a white guy...and itís already something that didnít need to be done in the first place.
They ran out of cool ideas very quickly. As you said, after the first the principal series was garbage.
Itís a shot in the dark, so to speak.
