Super Hero movies....you in?





Do you remember what was the first superhero movie you watched? For me, and I am sure for many others in Gen X, I remember fondly watching Superman starring Christopher Reeve. I have never been that much into comic books as a way to satisfy my superhero quota, but movies, yes, bring them on!


Batman, Superman, Blade, Blankman, Punisher, The Rocketeer, and The Crow (one of my personal favorites) all help pave way for the what I would call the Golden Age of SuperHero Cinema. While these movies are great standalone films, I think what the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) are doing by creating an ever-expanding world where characters can live and die is bloody brilliant.

As a fan, I want to see the characters cross over into other films, and not just in movies like The Avengers or Justice League, but in other movies, such as in Iron Man 2 when we are introduced to Black Widow. They remind me of when Scooby Doo cartoons used to have guest appearances by Batman and Robin or the Globetrotters. It adds that much more excitement to the movie or episode!


I, for one, cannot wait to see where the next batch of movies takes us!
