9 movie prequels that should never happen — but probably will



The trailer for new TV series Gotham got us thinking about prequels.

Some movies have characters and situations that you’d love to know more about. Some shows, like Hannibal or Bates Motel, prove that finding out how characters got to be the way that they were is a really interesting journey.

These are movies on the other side of the spectrum, where there’s no more story to tell. Here are 9 prequels that should never exist — but probably will.
