Superheroes are among the most popular imaginary characters and they are a great motivation for some of the best Hollywood movies.
It all started back in 1978, with the movie ”Superman” which was a big hit, but Tim Burton’s ”Batman” in 1989 was the movie that broke all box office records. In the nineties, this genre of movies has reached its bottom after the premiere of the disastrous film of Joel Schumacher, ”Batman and Robin”. But things went well again in 1998, after the release of “Blade”. The success of this movie caused interest in superheroes again.
Nowadays, superhero movies are a big business in Hollywood, but also a big money-makers. Superhero movies are most often based on comic books and we just love to watch them. But not all superhero movies are that amazing. There a few of them that didn’t went well on the box office and among the audience. However, I decided to make a list of some of the best superhero movies of all time. Enjoy in our list of great superhero movies!
Released in 1978, this is the first superhero blockbuster and Christopher Reeves will always be remembered as the real Superman. All “Superman” movies after this looked like pale sequels. This movie proved that comic books could be turned into successful movies, so this list couldn’t be complete without the legendary Superman.
Batman Begins (2005)
“Batman Begins” was released in 2005, and this is the creation of Batman as we know it today. Christopher Bale played Batman, one of the most favorite superheroes of all time and he managed to remove the bad memories of fans of the previous movies for Batman and Robin. “Batman Begins” was very successful on the box office and the audience loved it.
The Dark Knight (2008)
Released in 2008, “The Dark Knight” is the sequel of “Batman Begins”, directed again by Christopher Nolan. The Dark Knight is more than just a superhero movie. It is a clear example of excellence in acting and script. The only sad thing about this movie is that Heath Ledger died before he realizes the impact made by his version of the Joker.
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
The second sequel of the story for the double life of Peter Parker and the fantastic action sequences were enough to separate this movie from the original and to satisfy the audience. Released in 2004 with Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in the lead roles, “Spider-Man 2″ was another successful superhero movie worth watching.
Iron Man (2008)
“Iron Man” was released in 2008 and is one of the most successful and most famous superhero movies in the last few years. First of all, the movie had great story, amazing action scenes and fantastic cast, including Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges.
The Avengers (2012)
Marvel did a great job by gathering all superheroes in one movie. “The Avengers” is packed up with great action sequences, impressive special effects and not to mention the fantastic cast. Definitely worth watching.
One of the few black superheroes Blade manages not only to save the world from vampires, but also to save the entire genre of movies about superheroes. Released back in 1998 this movie is full of vampires and great special effects. Wesley Snipes was in the lead role and manages to capture perfectly the image of half man – half vampire.
The Incredibles (2004)
“The Incredibles” is perhaps the best animated superhero movie ever and tells the story of a family of superheroes who have to hide their superpowers from the ordinary people. Released in 2004, “The Incredibles” is produced by Pixar, which is one of the best animation film studios.
