Are there any franchises you believe need to stop while they're ahead? Or perhaps even stopped a long time ago? You're not alone.

One online user, u/Ziggi28 asked, “What franchise had been milked to death?” Over 6.7K people responded and voted on the nominations. Here are the top eight answers.

Many agreed the Call of Duty had been the same for at least the last three years. Noggin-a-Floggin asked, “How many times have they gone back to WW2? It's like three times, right?”

NoWorld106 said, “I agree. Unfortunately, Disney has required Marvel to produce multiple shows to keep the Disney+ pipeline going, so I no longer care to keep up with the MCU. Like Star Wars, the whole brand has been cheapened as a result.”

Marvel – 2.3K Votes

IAmBotARobot asked, “Is the next Halloween really going to be the last one or not?” 5Garbanzobeans answered, “Forever? No way. Michael Myers is an “immortal” character. The End of the current story? Yes.”

Halloween – 2.4K Votes
