Yesterday afternoon, I went and saw “Avengers: Endgame” in theater for the second time. I’m still blown away by the film and loved it even more the second time. It’s definitely a masterpiece of a film and definitely one of the best superhero films ever made.
There has been many superhero films over the years. Some of them were crap, some of them were pretty good but it’s very rare that Hollywood makes a superhero film that’s really good. Why? It’s hard to make a really good superhero film but sometimes Hollywood does make a really good one.
My Top 10 Favorite superhero films in no particular order:
Superman: The Movie
The Dark Knight (w/ Heath Ledger as Joker)
Robocop (the first one with Peter Weller)
Batman (yes, the Burton/Keaton/Nicholson movie)
The Crow (1994 film with Brandon Lee)
Logan (this is the best Wolverine film and still need to get the BluRay at some point)
The Punisher (1994 film w/Thomas Jane, in my opinion this is the best Punisher film)
Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse (Animated film but still really good, I was never into Spiderman until I saw this. Still need to get the BluRay soon)
Now you can add “Avengers: Endgame” to that list. I thought the Russo brothers did a great job with “Infinity War/Endgame” ’cause they were both really good movies.
Watching all these superhero movies in the theater over the years of my life, sparked my interest in comics and graphic novels. I just started collecting comics and graphic novels ’cause of it all. I have a small comic and graphic novel collection but it’s a good start.
Keep in mind that it was Superman that started this whole superhero craze. Superman started the comics and he started the live action films. There were no other superhero movies before “Superman: The Movie” came out. They don’t call Superman the king of all superheroes for no reason ’cause he really is. He started it all. Marvel wouldn’t have been around if it wasn’t for him.
