We all aspire to be superheroes one day endowed with great powers and strengths. Here is the list of movies that redefined the genre and made us believe that there is actually a superhero inside all of us:
The Avengers (2012)
Finally, Disney studios decided to take a plunge fulfill the dream of every marvel comic book fan by bringing together the earth’s mightiest superheroes in a single frame. Joss Whedon killed it and wowed audiences as they cheered, drank, ate and marveled at it all.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
After the successful launch of Captain America franchise, its sequel took it to the next level. It was more like an espionage thriller than a run-of-the-mill superhero outing. SHIELD was penetrated by HYDRA, the villain was menacing and had an intimate connection with Steve Rogers’ past. A must watch if you are a fan of spy drama and superhero stuff rolled into one.
The Dark Knight (2008)
It was truly the milestone achieved by Christopher Nolan in the history of comic book filmmaking. Gotham confronts its most diabolical, psychotic and harrowing villain in the form of Joker who plays deadly mind games with Batman and calls himself as “agent of chaos”. Heath Ledger posthumously won an Oscar for the “Best Supporting actor”, many believed he immortalized the character of joker with his unbelievable performance.
Iron Man (2008)
If you know Robert Downey Jr.today, a great deal can be attributed to his role of Tony Stark and the unprecedented fame that came to him. A Playboy Billionaire tech-genius fights bad guys with a metallic suit of armour in an attempt to save the world. The movie sowed the seeds of “AVENGERS INITIATIVE”.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Humans created advanced sentinels who are capable of defeating Mutants, in a desperate bid to save their tribe, Prof X and Magneto buried their differences and sent Wolverine to go into the past and change the timeline. It’s one of the most breathtaking and exhilarating project undertaken by Bryan Singer.
