That could be argued, sure, Megan. But what about our fascination with the superhero genre who walk around like gods among men with powers we wish we had? Consider also that Avatar also introduced the world to a fantastical new realm people wanted to live in as opposed to the real world. The same is true of the biggest pop culture movie of perhaps all time—Star Wars. An invisible supernatural force used to fight evil? While there’s an element of juvenility and childlike wonder to many things we enjoy, I’ll go out on a limb to wager the elements of the divine capture the attention as well, if not subconsciously.
